A custom sized road bike frame designed with the help of Shinichi Konno and created under the guidance of the faculty and assistants of Tokyo College of Cycle Design (TCD).
Measurements are taken to fit my dimensions, and is held upon an adjustable jig. Brass solder is then fillet brazed onto steel tubes, and measurements are checked with a reference plane and a jig. Seat stay tubes are heat treated for a curved detail, before the joineries are hand finished.
The bike was powder coated in Providence before dimension-specific components were assembled.
