Steve Goff Custom

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Well, not so custom.  My brother is bored of it so he's sending me his Steve Goff Classic Reynolds 853 frame and Easton carbon fork.  Nice!  It's fun spec'ing parts..  :D

Hunh, hafta say I think of 853 as a lugged frame material.

The BB is lugged..the rest is fillet brazed.  The important point here is, I'm old and can't hammer anymore!!  :D

Cool.   I kinda expected the fillet brazing given 'custom' and all.    What are the angles, do you know?

No clue.  It was my bro's custom bike..I suspect he went fairly conventional, 72/73 or such.  It's also got a top tube substituted for a down tube.  And a carbon fork.  Super light..for steel.  But apparently a bit whippy.  :D  Which I'm actually ok with.  I like soft frames.  Groupset arrives tomorrow..hopefully have it built up by March.  We'll see.  Always fun building stuff up.

Now, now.   You know we don't say the w-word anymore, it's just not PC.      "Good planing frames" is the current idiom I believe.
