I have been wanting to build a new steel road frame for a long time. Instead of a traditional lugged frame, I decided to go with a full brazed bike. I have been doing a bit of brazing on all my bikes for certain joints, but this would be 100% brazed. This look provides a near carbon frame appearance and gives the builder a much larger amount of leeway when choosing build options. I also wanted to build a cutting edge frame, so I chose True Temper S3 tubing. Instead of getting all custom with tubing choices, I decided to go with the full S3 build and trust True Tempers engineering. Another big difference with this build is that I used the Anvil Journeyman Jig, lent to me from Rabid Frameworks. Pretty crazy setup and it makes things SOOO much easier. However, I would find out as I went that the jig is just a tool and like any other tool, the builder has to really know what they are doing to get the most out of the tool and get the bike right.
