After roughly 3-4 months of working on this frame, it is ready to ride! I made this frame with the guidance and help of frame builder Aj Lu (Owner of Muirandessi Cycles http://www.muirandessicycles.com/) as a part of my Senior Project for High School. I love this frame to death, all the trial and error payed off and I'm very proud of the frame I built.
DIY Custom Fillet Brazed frame made with a True Temper 4130 Chromoly Tube Set. Size: 55 Seat Tube c-c/55.5 Effective Top Tube c-c. Featuring: Paragon Machine Works DR2012 Horizontal Bottle Opener Dropouts, S-Bend True Temper Seat Stays, Nova Cycles Chromoly Seat Tube.
The frame was based off of the 1993 Cannondale Track. Not exactly to spec but the Head Tube, Seat Tube angles and Bottom Bracket Drop was taken from it's geometry. *still own but out of commission

Through out the making of this frame my feelings about it changed to some degree. After finally getting to ride the frame that I made, it appeared that the fitment and geometry was slightly too big for me. I also ended up babying it a lot. Knowing exactly what went into this frame made me be more careful and aware of how I treated this frame. I can't let it go just yet, nor even use it for myself. So for now it is hanging on my wall as a reminder that I can accomplish anything if I put my mind to it, a milestone for me in this hobby that has humbly taken over my time. Maybe someday later on down the line I will build it up again.
