There used to be an exhaustive source on Bicycle building. Chome Molly, Aluminum and the like.
Loosescrews.com used to carry Campy dropouts and the fittings to butt the CrMo tubing to the other
CrMo tubing. There was a supplier that even used to carry the tubing. The measurements and
dimensions are easy to steal off of other particularly favored frames but the source for such parts
are scarce to me now. There were even frame forms to use. Where can I find a resource like that?

The URL in my .sig includes a framebuilding suppliers list, both wholesale and retail. There's also
a link to the framebuilding email list, which has more than a thousand members worldwide, so you
might find someone in your area to suggest local suppliers as well.

google will turn up a number of suppliers for tubing, dropouts, all the other bits and pieces. henry
james has a good site, but there are many others. good folk like damon rinard, joshua putnam, etc,
have put together collections of framebuilding links and info. look them up. best of all- check the
framebuilders list archives:
