This is to be my first use of the BikeCad program and also to incorporate a bike fit into the design, making it my first truly custom frame. The program certainly revolutionises the design processes allowing you to constantly adjust the design whilst keeping an eye on the aesthetics and geometry. We wanted a full stainless steel frame with accommodation for mudguards and a lightweight pannier rack. The only stainless fork blades available are Reynolds 953, but the frame will be in XCR. The steerer tube has to be non stainless, from Columbus. Apart from the fork crown, it will also be my first fully fillet silver soldered frame.
