lugged steel frame I built, 2017

Built this with the help of my friend who runs a bike shop. I brazed the frame he did the fork (I wasn't sure I was good enuff for that). Lugged steel. Fastback stays but attached to the sides of the seattube not the back, in order to give clearance for wider tires. Pictured with normal road tires but could fit up to 32mms, which is also the reason for the old school centerpulls.

Mongrel parts group, compact 36/50 up front, 9 speed rear with Shimano Tiagra shifters.

You could have ELVIS on the downtube!

I'll bet a lot of pride

I'll bet a lot of pride comes with riding a bike you designed and built with your own hands - well done sir!

Very true! Although I am

Thank you, and Very true! Although I am already noticing things I would do different next time lol.

For instance didn't give it enuff cutout for the gear cluster... have to mod it by removing the last cog and swapping for a spacer, as it rubs when removing the rear wheel. So i'll have 8 speed in the back... how often u use the 11t anyway, right?

But yeh it is so much fun.
