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.

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!

How did he win with such narrow rims? I read on the internet that wide rims are faster.
