So, the latest and greatest on this little endeavor.

Got the rear axle/hub/drop-out inserts sorted.
Inserts of the head tube and cranks are done as well.

The Shock that's gonna play adjustable seat post controller, is pretty much there as well.
It still needs a bit of work on the electronics side, but that's no big deal.

I badly want to modify the RockShox Revelation Dual Air, but time will have to permit that.
It needs electronic ride height adjustment, and a carbon bridge, if not simply carbon lowers. 20mm through axle is on the list too, but I guess that goes without saying.

The adjustable head angle headset, seems to be pretty high on the todo list as well.

The attached pics are all old by now. I will try to sort a couple of current project pics.

Just wow! I love how you say "or simply carbon lowers" - barely a weekend project. Us mere mortals just sit in the back, sip our tea and observe with eyes wide open and a great respect for the master. :)

Yesterday and till this morning, Montreux, Switzerland, now in Geneva airport together with an associate on my way to Madrid, Spain, have a meeting there, then onwards to Valladolid, Spain, for a cadaver lab test. Back to Montreux the day after, maybe pass by Düsseldorf, Germany on the way back home Sunday.

So no bike building in sight for the nearest future.

If you need anyone to test out the Carbon DJ frame on some bigger hits, let me know. I'm your man.

Hey Moosey,

As I make stuff exclusively for my own amusement, the testing of the stuff I make, is 99% lab tests.
If the part in question will stand up to my level of abuse, it's approved, as nobody else is ever going to ride it(besides that, I'm on the other side of the pond, but I guess you knew that).

Thanks for the offer though.

Magura :)

Yes it i.
I don't know what that exact transmitter belongs to though. Could be a Marblehead sail boat perhaps.

Mag,
I've dabbled a bit in composites, but never CF ... Curious what adhesive you are using at the headtube joint.
Brand/Formulation ?

In this application, the adhesive could be just about anything epoxy based, as it's not a part of the structure, but merely holding things in place during stratification.
So the short answer, an isotropic epoxy with a pot life of like at least an hour.
As I recall, the one I used here, is Hysol 9464.

In fact making carbon lowers, would pretty much be a weekend project.
I'd say 3 days would do, given I could find 3 days in a row for it that is ;)
Making something like that, is not all that complicated. If made on positive moulds, even the moulds would be pretty simple and straight forward.

Hmm, not only do I have to put up with you on PB, now it's down to stalking. :D

If you look around, you'll find a fair bit of info about the carbon SiC brakes here as well.

As for getting into gear, well, something tells me that it will be limited to a bit of testing and the like, for at least 3 weeks from now.
Drowning in work as usual....

So when are you going to join the DIY club?
You gotta want to make a frame or something, no?

Time for a laugh for you Sti. ;)
I couldn't deal with either a flexy or a heavy fork for this project, so today as I had a couple of hours to spare, I made the first parts for making carbon lowers.

The bad news?
I'm out of carbon again, but managed to machine most of the metal bits.

As a matter of fact, yes. ;)

The mould for the saddle was made yesterday.
It's still lacking some finish, but it's pretty much done.
Also the cassette for the bike is done (9 speed with 10 speed spacing, based on a PG990).

It's slowly getting there.

Nice! I was going to ask if there was any update on the custom fork you were building. But, this will do for now. :)

....cause I'm somewhat swamped in work.
The fork project isn't dead though, just sleeping.
I had a look at it as late as 2 days ago.
Looking unfortunately does not seem to cause much progress.

I understand, I have several dormant projects. :)

Unfortunately I keep adding stuff to the list. :D

Great looking frame and I can't wait to see the finished product!
