For sure the English cycles frames are special, curious how is the design process, the discussions between you and whoever will weld the frame?

We exchanged many mails and Rob answered all the questions and gave always promptly feedback about my ideas. As an example I thought I'd ask for a T47 bb. When we discussed the cable routing I changed my mind and opted for a standard BSA bb.

I designed a little logo for my "V3" frame. The logo is on both sides of the fork and on the top tube.

Today I worked a bit on the setup and decided to use another handlebar. It will take a few days until I get the new one, so pateince is needed :|

Looking forward to seeing this build completed. Please do document all the weights.

I enjoy English frameset builds - they are never boring even if you don't enjoy the aesthetics of the frames (as an aside, I do).

Oh, I don't have all the weights... but what I will do is document all the parts and post the total weight.

Wow, can't wait to see this in its final form. English is definitely making some of the most innovative WW frames out there today

Rob English doesn't make bikes, they're sculptures, artwork, always beautiful! :thumbup:

Instead of the 3T handlebar I'll try the THM Ulna.
