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 build 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.
