It would be wrong not to like that bike.

Mixtes were marketed as a unisex style, so why not.

Racks look like they're from velo-orange. I've been happy with products I've bought from them.

Fillet brazed. You don't have to worry about lugs at all. The temp is low enough that you can mess with it quite a bit before you have a problem.

As far as lugs go. If the angle of the down tube is off, which is pretty much the only one you will/could have an issue with (I think). You just finesse it, keep the gap as tight as possible. OR you can lug everything but the area that needs a different angle and just fillet braze that part..... OR, make you own lug for just that joint using an existing lug, cut off the part of the lug with a bad angle and braze on a tube at the desired angle, then shape it till it's pretty.

One of the problems with framebuilding is the options are endless.

PM me, we can talk....

My GF has a 54cm in that same year/color. The only difference between that and my 54cm Tricross is that the toptube is curved and dropped and has a shorter seattube, on the Dolce. Is that what you mean by "women's geometry"? 'Cuz all that's just more compact frame geometry; shorter seattube than toptube.

The equivalent to a Dolce in men's bikes is the Secteur. If you look at equivalent toptube lengths, you'll find that the men's is actually more compact and more sloping toptube. Specialized make a Secteur in a 61. I'd take the girls to have a look at one, if you can find a 61 (60cm TT). And, if they're like my GF, they actually prefer less girly and more competition looking bikes.

54 Dolce / 52 Secteur
seattube: 480 / 447
toptube: 537 / 537
headtube: 160 / 145
standover: 763 / 756 - Secteur is actually lower than the Dolce, because of HT and ST length
bar width: 400 / 420 - Narrower bar is part of "women-specific"
stem: 100 / 90 - I was surprised to see the women's have a longer stem

My GF says that her Dolce is ugly. She didn't want it, based on looks. But, that's all we could locally find, late in '07. She doesn't ride it enough to justify swapping it out. She's always on her Tricross.

It would only change the angle if the head tube is too short. Head tube length increases proportionately with seat tube length. And that's independent of top tube length. See here for a little insight on lugs,tubes and building.

Not to offend but before ordering parts and picking up the torch a little research is called for. There is tons of info out there and I prefer to stick with the "old school" geometry and fit. From what you've posted that appears to be the direction you want to go. I'm in the process of getting the bike I've wanted for a long time (Anderson Custom) so I'm looking hard at the desired result and how to get there.

If you are looking for a book, this is the one: Paterek Manual
It has plans for a cheap low use jig. It also explains how to build a frame without a jig quite well.

Go talk to your local welding supply house for a torch, they will keep you happy.....

I never got that



at work until 930 last night, but I'll go home in time to take that sumbitch out again

in the meantime I had a ham and swiss souffle thing for breakfast and got lunch from that place where I got the smoked duck breast and all the cheese from last week

so if I manage to burn 11,287 calories tonight I will just about break even

assuming I don't eat anything for dinner of course

is gin and tonic a good recovery drink

still got plenty of absinthe left too, but I would rather drink a fart

plus absinthe is one of the the primary ingredients for vomit

A good diet is an essential part of any exercise regimen.

Which works out well in this case, since both are acutely vacant.

While I will not argue that your choice in bike exudes coolness, the chances of you bringing sexy back are about the same as getting honesty from a Politician.

As for the chair bike, I haven't done anything except convince myself I want a tadpole trike based on a couple of demo rides. And I'll bet you 50 bucks if you're honest and if you take a spin on one you'll agree it's a fucking blast, even if it isn't sexy. A tadpole trike is fun in much the same way it's fun to drive a go-cart.

Except for the whole motor thing..... They are way fun though. If it wasn't for the whole visibility thing I would be on one.
