Perfect, easycomposites was exactly what I was thinking. I haven’t built my large curing oven yet. I only have a small oven that I use for powdercoating cure that will handle parts as large as fork lowers.
I started a contract job in a Engineering and Research department where they do all of their composite and materials R&D/testing. I’m waiting for the perfect moment to ask if I can utilize their process equipment and ovens off the clock... fingers crossed. Otherwise I’m fine with building my own ovens at home. It would be really nice to make a bike frame as a side project using their processes... I mean they aren’t currently using that stuff right now haha

Thanks
Well, I used OOA Out Of Autoclave prepreg from Easycomposites and cured this in my (big) homemade oven. The front triangle is molded in one shot in a big resin mold using a bladder. There is a debulking every 3 layers made with a simple vaccum bag.

Great, I was considering the same thing. I do not have a autoclave oven, so I can only utilize vacuum bagging with oven cure. PM me your results after testing if you don’t mind. I will keep you posted on mine as well.

Did you outsource the carbon work or do you have access to your own process?

What a beautiful bike. It gave me anxiety seeing the work stand clamped onto the frame like that . Big fan of using the dummy seatpost method.

People back pedal when getting their pedal position during certain styles of technical cycling, especially in stop and go or pedal kick situations, which usually is being performed in the lower gear ratios. The typical rider however will probably not have to worry about back pedaling... only the small percentage of dare devils worry about the chain drop during back pedaling.
