I took a course by Robert of Big Forest Frameworks to learn fillet brazing, turned out quite nice, I find. Geometry-wise i one-upped the One U.P. :) Using a regular BSC BB shell I made a rear end that can take up to a 45-622/650bX2,2, tire yet has chain stays only 418mm long. Don't know what the fuzz with those modern wide bbs is about :) -->Edit after about a year of riding: I found it, the fuzz is about chainline. Well I'll count that for the learning curve.
