> The story goes . . .
I was at university, rarely with any cash in my wallet. My frame snaps, what do i do? With no money to buy a frame, I source some material and get busy for a few days. The result - a tidy looking frame, to my specification, which I know is strong and has got me riding again.
Several months on, and the success of this frame has created a small demand in the trials world. So, conceding to the pressure, production begins . . .
The FP Two Four trials frame is designed predominantly for street riding, using 24 inch wheels, as the name suggests. This new trend in the trials world often sees riders being more creative with technical moves, so a smaller, more flickable bike is prefered.
Chainstay - 380mm
BB Height - +25mm
Head Angle - 72°
This is what we feel works best for the FP Two Four frame geometry wise, but should be used as a guide only, as everything can be adjusted to personal requirements.
All frames are designed and built in house, using the simple, yet very strong twin triangle design. Geometry options are endless, from short mod frames, to long and low stock frames, our jig can cater for all.
The material used is T45 Steel, inherentaly strong and nice to work with. Strengthed where required with gussets that are designed for the job, around the headtube and chainstays areas. All frames feature cross braces on chainstays/seatstays to increase rigidity and try to combat the frame flexing caused by powerful brakes.
All tubes are cut by hand to fit one another perfectly, before the brazing process begins. Tubes that dont fit,end up in the scrap bin! All frames are powdercoated to the customers specific colour choice, with decals applied afterwards.
To view some build examples of our frames, view below.
*Handbuilt frames built in T45 with brazed joints.
*Simple, yet strong, twin triangle design.
*Machined T45 headtube, with extra material at either end, to prevent head tube flaring.
*BB shells machined to a width of 73mm.
*Stainless steel mech hangers.
*Choice of either horizontal or vertical dropouts, machined in house.
*Choice of cable routing to suit Magura's, vee's, gear cables, disks etc.
*Choice of 4-bolt mounts, v-brake mounts, disc mounts etc.
*Gussets located to increase strength at specific joints.
*Frame weight is around 5 - 5 1/2 lbs, depending on individual specifications.
*All frames are powdercoated to the customers specific colour choice.
*In short, you choose what you want, we'll build it into the frame!
