    Re: Bottom bracket & headtube specs

    Hi Danny, Can I ask where you found the bottom brackets? When I looked all I could find were 4130 so no use for mig welding.

    Re: About time I started this then.

    Hi Frank, One of things stopping me progressing this build has been my dithering about how to do the bottom bracket. I have considered using a press fit BB and if my turning skills don't come back to...
