Wow loved the design. Id like to see your folio. Defenetly not your first hehe. Did you made those yoke?

Thanks! I've designed a couple of bikes professionally, but the is the 3rd that I've fabricated myself. The black yolk that's inline with the shock is from Bikeyolk, the other 2 links are one offs I designed and had CNC'd.

Gorgeous design! I see you brazed everything, what was the choice you made over welding? I'm about to dip my toes in to frame building so looking forward to hearing from your experience!
Again: looks so rad!! Enjoy your very own bike well!

Thanks for the compliments! I chose brazing for a few reasons. Firstly, setup costs are a lot lower, a good Tig welder plus argon purging setup for inside the frame isn't cheap. Secondly, brazing is a lot more forgiving to the new player (less damaged tubes), and I think is a lot faster to get "good enough" at. Thirdly, I find it distorts less than welding.
Hope that helps and good luck with only dipping your toes and not falling all the way in!
