Many of you have probably already seen Damon Rinard’s now classic article about his experience building a carbon fiber bike in his garage. It was originally posted close to ten years ago and is currently archived on Sheldon Brown’s site (if any of you are not familiar with Sheldon’s site, it is a great place to explore). The rest of Rinard’s tech pages are archived as well. Check them out; these really are a great resource.
Inspired by Rinard’ experience, Brano Meres has made a couple of frames and a few carbon components of his own design. The first frame looks great and his build process is well documented. Check out how he made the first carbon frame. His second frame, a bamboo carbon mix, is worth a look too. Cool stuff Brano! Keep up the good work.
I probably won’t get a chance to post again until next week. Have a great Thanksgiving and don’t forget to get in a ride after the big meal.
