This is bike number one of 14 now. I chose fairly standard track geometry: 74 degree head and seat tube, 60mm of BB drop, shortest chainstays possible, and a 56cm square frame. Despite some not-so-pretty welds, I’ve been pounding this bike through the streets of Minneapolis for five years with no problems. With a Dura Ace track group it weighs 15.5 lbs. The bars are wrapped with twine and coated with polyurethane. The crank is actually a standard road model with the inner chainring tabs filed off, the headset is filed out, too, to make it threadless. Please check out the bikes I later built on my own at www.clockworkbikes.com I can’t say enough good things about UBI, it was absolutely instrumental in my start to frame building–I even went twice! Thanks, Joel
