My Student Sander’s variation of seat stay caps on his fillet single speed frame. We built the frame with my custom drop down oval stay. Sander came from Norway to learn fillet brazing in a 3 1/2 week course.
A second shot of the seat stay caps. I do not remember if we squashed the top tub oval or not.
A frame build in the early 90s as a concept frame test ridden at track once. Great shot of my actual hand signature.
Zinc phosphate doing its job and rust free steel even after 16 years with last paint job. I was bummed as I was going to loose the zinc coating with this frames last paint job with a powder primer and the powder version of a zinc phosphate rust proofing.
Titanium parts made by Pino Morroni for the silver brazed lugged Ti frames and forks. Cecil used his patented vacuum brazing process to build the frames.
A rear shot of what was my transition to my current way of doing dropouts which occurred in 1995/96
Coming in at just over 3 lbs without trying to save weight is impressive for this frame.
My 1st tri layer powder effect color on a frame.
ST /CS fillet work in candy green. Frame ends up with 3 different layers of powder for the candy colors.
I wanted this one to have a bit of a retro feel to it.
This was a second concept frame I built back in the early 90s. This one a road frame I road about 2000 miles on.
The final design of the uni extension. done right after the first Unitour done in Minnesota. It incorporates a front bumper to protect the upper handle and a computer mount.
My 17-4 stainless modified copies of Zeus 2000 track drop outs. My preferred track dropouts due to their shorter tabs. I prefer mine to flow into the stays.
A variation of doing the front dropouts.
Dubbed the Tetemeyer Challenge for NAHBS 2010. I wanted to do something a bit original and a double top tubed frame was the theme.
A mix of Columbus EL and the 4 main tubes are Aermet 100 alloy stainless. The fork is Columbus SL
The Frame built up for the first Minnecycle. Since it has been frame only with the group going on my KVA/953 frame. I prefer my older 8/9 spd Campy parts as they hold up better than the new stuff.
The last color of old no. 1 will be building this back up with older parts from its early days of racing.
The final look of old no. 1 before logo and parts.
This is the way I prefer to do my drop outs on frames. This is so they do not look like every other builders frames.
I used a stainless lugged shell for the bottom bracket. The orange is a powder coat. Check out the lint by the seat tube ! Hence the basic paint job.
A favorite of many due to the mass of this tri-tubed joint.
