Gravel Grinder frame build
 
Hey,

So I built a gravel frame. Pretty happy with how it came out so if you'd like to read through some of my brain vomit and see some pics of the build process check out the link and let me know what you think?

Thanks,
Allan

It looks really slick. I love the way flatmount looks.

I got a little preview of this frame and it's super hotness. Such nice work. Can't wait to see the finished bike!!

Very nice, Varco. You keep getting better and better. I love the headtube.

slick whip!
perhaps throw a carbon sleeve into the head tube to keep water from blowing in through those holes, and subsequently into the TT and DT breather holes? not a full length sleeve where it would interfere with the headset, just enough to back the holes.

There is a half round stainless steel insert brazed in there.

New Standard Buid??
 
Very cool, you thinking of adding this to your line of frames??

GScot 06-21-2017 09:11 AM

I'll be the guy to ask, what kind of VMC are you using? I will add the frame looks great since that the real topic here.

Looks great.

Are you open to visitors? I'm north of Santa Barbara, but pass through Valencia/Santa Clarita with some regularity in the summer as I head to and from the East Sierra.
