Well my Dads frame is finished and off to the powder coater! It is nice to be back building what I truly love, Mountain Bikes! Don't get me wrong, road bike are extremely beautiful and they are great to build however I will always have a place in my heart for the Mountain Bike. This particular frame had a lot firsts for me (somehow I have a feeling that there are still going to be a lot of those). Not only was it my first frame using the 44mm head tube but also with using the Bikecad program to help assist with the design process. Before I was just using Autocad for the design work, but now with Bikecad I can easily adjust certain aspects of a frame and immediately see how it affects the bike as a whole, VERY NICE. One most helpful things is using it to see how fork sag (the amount a Suspension Fork will sag just under normal riding) can affect the overall geometry of the bike. With the my first bike that I built at UBI I didn't include fork sag into my geometry. So a frame that had a 69 degree headtube actually had a 72 degree headtube, which ended up being little to steep for pointing the bike down hill and going crazy fast (makes the control a little sketchy).
