General Info
Model Year: 2011
Riding Type: Dirt Jump/Urban
Weight: 23 lb 9.4 oz (10700 g)
Additional Info: Understated and strong build. Parts chosen for strenght not weight. All one of parts designed and cut from billet aw7075 alluminium by me. Started with the chainring. Then dropouts because I could never understand why framebuilders didn't go for postmount. Then came the stem, cause I knew i could do it. Last DIY projekt was the hubs. started with a brakeless straight pull front hub, because straight pull is stronger and cooler and brakeless because never seen a DJ with front brakes. Rear hub was a bit more of a chalange, But found out wich hub i wanted to base it on. And it had to be straight pull to match the front and single speed again never seen a DJ whith gears. Took forever.....

That is insane, such impressive craftsmanship. Think you could do a geared 142x12 for a DT Swiss RWS with increased hanger offset (outwards) and make it work with a Hope SS hub? That would be my dream setup

Thanks. I have moved on to a new project so there probably won't be any more updates.
But what do you mean with increased hanger offset? And whats is the point with a hanger with an SS hub? Asuming ss is short for single speed....

I run it with a single speed hub so it only has 6 gears, just using 2/3 of a cassette, stronger wheel as it is evenly dished, just the gear cable bolt gets close to the spokes so if it was built a bit offset would add a bit of a safety buffer in there. Did you just model the original dropout and then redesign it? What's your next project?

Cool gear setup. Is there room to shorten the bolt a bit. Maybe a socket screw would solve your problem.
I'm thinking offsetting the deralier wouldn't fix it. Because the cassette will still be the same place.
I'm building a balance bike for my 2yo son. building a frame and som kickass wheels. Stock hubs this time thou.
