Ewen Gellie, a name probably known to many Melbourne cyclists, is making custom frames. Peruse his fine produce at Gellie Custom frames
Tig welded or Fillet Brazed; Track, Road, 29er, 96er or MTB, using Columbus, TrueTemper or Kaisei tubing. I can make a frame with my geometry to suit your size, or a custom geometry frame to your favourite design for a bit extra.
Frames for those who can appreciate the spring and liveliness of steel, and know that its beauty is just as much about the material as the paint and stickers.
The materials I use allow me to design a frame with a bit of frame flex. The tubing is strong and lightweight and results in a “lively” ride. So you get a frame with a more forgiving ride than aluminium so you can ride for longer and the frame will wear you out less.
In TIG welded, or Fillet brazed with the beautifully smooth joints and only 80 grams or so of extra weight. With disc mount or removeable-post brake-bosses. Why fillet brazed? Fillet brazed joints are significantly better at withstanding fatigue failure than TIG joints, slightly better than lugs, and slightly better than both for strength to failure.
