D-Plus Welded

Damn Holmes! That’s a big head tube

The #makebikes D-Plus is welded and in the machine shop for prep before the paint shop. Took a few quick iPhone photos and put it on the triple beams: 1499 grams. That’s expected an respectable weight. All the pluses on the frame add weight and with a light build kit, the complete bike should weigh in at just over 16 lbs. the carbon Parlee I raced last season weighed just over 15.

Beefy

To recap, the D-Plus is a custom Ti CX bike built by Davidson at EBB and features BB30, 44m inset 7 headset, butted tubing and track dropouts with a derailer hanger. It switches from single to geared and is stiff as fsck. It’s another version of the Modal concept developed by Mark V.
