The DMO bike frame jig Mk2.......

Well its been nice and sunny all weekend, but I figured before it got too warm outside I would try to finish off the main aspects of the new frame jig so that I can order the material next week.

I tried to finish it off last night but it was about 30 degrees and I'd had a couple of beers so it probably wasn't the best time to make design decisions!!

Anywho, I digress, please see below for some screen shots of the new frame jig. I'll get all of the main secitons rough cut to size so that all I have to do is mill in the slots and we're laughing!!

Plan view of the jig - hopefully there is enough adjustability to suit most frames

Everything rotates around the bottom bracket as the datum

I forgot....here's a bit of a teaser for you regarding frames 2 and 3.....

I completely forgot to tag onto the end of my last up-date a little teaser I have for you guys.

It just so happens that two people who have seen (and like) my frames have (rather fortunately for me) asked me to make them something rather different from the bikes you normally see out on the trails.

Here is a little teaser for you guys, over the coming weeks more of the details of the frames will be posted here on the blog with production due to start just as soon as I have finished manufacturing the new frame jig (hopefully by the end of August).

Anyway there is a prize in it if anyone can guess the format of frames number 2 and 3 from the following spy shot below taken deep in the DMO R&D workshop ;)

Dennis, Michael & Oliver!!!

Well I'd like to start this blog post with an apology - sorry to everyone who has emailed wanting to know what is going on with DMO Frameworks! To say its been a bit of a whirl wind since both the Bespoked Bristol show and the Spin London show is somewhat of an understatement.

I was completely overwhelmed with the feedback I have had from the shows, and from the blog directly - I've now had nearly 6000 hits which is quite amazing!

Anywho, one of my motivations while building frame number one was to get a picture of the three of us with the finished article - well here it is.....

I think I'm going to have to get this one framed and hung up in the workshop.

The beedy eyed amoung you will have noticed that the bike is now geared, this is because I took part in the inagrual highland trail 430 race on it at the end of May - more to follow on this shortly.

I am currently in the process of designing my frame jig MK2, hopefully I'll be in a position to put some screen shots of this on the website by the end of the weekend.

Anywho, I'd better get back to it!
