A pirate’s new ship (part 2).

This post further documents Sean “Burnsey” as he progressed through his recent Fat Bike Frame Building Course at Metal Guru. The frame he chose to build was a single speed 29″+ that will fit a 29″ x 3″ tire. Other features include sliding dropouts, 44 mm head tube, bent down tube, short chain stays and a bent seat tube. The gallery below shows the steps he took from tack welding through to the finished frame. To see his initial efforts check here.

Details of the construction of the frame can be found here and here. […]
