I got tired of working on my taxes, so decided to put some effort into my new road frame.  The front triangle came out spot on and dimensionally perfect. Cool.  I have been refining my rear triangle fixture with every frame I build.  On my earlier frames, it would take hours to align the nds stay, braze, realign, and finally align the ds stay and braze.  this one came out within 2mm.  I believe the total weight will be around 3.5 lbs. and combined with my Alpha Q fork, the frameset will be about 4.25 lbs.  Not bad considering my rain bike frame alone weighs almost 7 lbs.  Now the fixture is free to start on Devos Di2 cross bike.  Should be an adventure.
