It’s ugly, but it may pass muster.

These are photos of my first frame. It is a road racer, 55×56 compact, and will have an Easton carbon fork.  There is Dura Ace waiting in a box. The frame is stupid light, for being tubular steel.  Pre-bent stays, that I am still working on. Notice the unique front derailleur cable mount.  I’m going to build and ride it to ops-ck DONOVAN CYCLES’ first hand built frame.  I know, my fillets are ugly, but the frame is straight and I’m trusting it.  I will take at least one sweet jump with it.
