Yeah, it's pretty impossible i think. Idc though, but it wouldn't ride right for sure.

You can have whatever you want, as long as it's not a strong rear end design.

pro rider whos been a metal fabricator for 24 years that offers custom frames but is basically the apple of bike frames because he only lets you pick geo and nothing else, fuck I heard he won't even let you get a frame without the sticker unless you are some pro LOOOL..

can't have toptube gusset, can't have wishbone, can't have different chainstay caps, can't have different bottom bracket shapes, can't have different headtube shapes, can only choose top and downtube tubes, can't chose dropouts other than size, thats a whole lot of cants for $100 less...

A guy who's been a pro and a metal fabricator longer then most of these critics have been alive, yet they all think they think they know metal fabrication better then He does , this site never ceases to amaze me with how stupid kids are

|

2/26/2015 10:41 PM

I'm not saying he doesn't know metal fabrication, but being a pro and being in the metal fab industry doesn't automatically make what he says 100% law. There are TONS of arguments on the internet over whether the wishbone style chainstay is stronger than a non-wishbone style chainstay, so obviously it's debated, meaning it hasn't been 100% proved that one is stronger than the other (Unless it has been and I'm unaware) meaning that his word that it is stronger, isn't 100% factual.

Also, I've seen MANY frames crack and break in the rear end, and ALL of them were not wishbone style. All the more I'm gonna say on that matter.

2/27/2015 12:20 AM

I would personally like to see Mike Laird argue with George French about how much stronger a non-wishbone chainstay is against the director style wishbone chainstay.

But they did remove the wishbone CS on the new MotoRoss.

Laird might be onto something...

Both of them have an account on here.. maybe you'll get your wish haha.

But actually the MotoRoss doesn't have a wishbone CS simply because that was Aaron Ross' preference, as stated by George himself in a previous thread on here

"The MotoRoss is Aaron's signature frame. He was not a fan of the wishbone, the wave or the gusset and instead wanted a "classical" look. So that is what we gave him."

I think i was on that thread complaining about Sunday making budget frames... lol

I think GFrench mentioned that he made the Motoross a non-wishbone and non-wave frame without sacrificing strength.

Maybe there's a way to make strong chainstays without the wishbone and Laird knows how.

You get to pick tubing as well. He has basically came up with the strongest frame he can make and doesn't want to put his name on anything else but starting out you can't really blame him. BTW call fbm about a custom dropout, double wishbone, head tube shapes, and custome gussets and I'll be surprised with they come back with a quote for less then $900

The thing about the wishbone is why I am hesitant. I prefer the look and feel of it and i am very sure it is stronger. And atleast more stiff. I have broken frames in that area. And never once has it been on a wishbone. I also would want a toptube gusset i think. But that's not a MUST for me. Usually as long as you go for a not super thin toptube, it wont bend or stress too much.

Mike Laird KNOWS what he is doing. That i trust. But sometimes the materials you have to buy actually makes it too hard to actually make a strong part. He doesnt wanna have to use a piece from the toptube or downtube right there because thatd put too much stress on that type of metal. He would need something real thick and stuff. Which would be a real pain for him and honestly, with his welding, he can probably have it just as strong in that area.

Ding ding ding.

"He would need something real thick and stuff. Which would be a real pain for him and honestly, with his welding, he can probably have it just as strong in that area."

You just explained it. The way he's capable of welding he can build a frame just as strong as a wishbone without all that extra material. Based off of old ways/technology a wishbone would be stronger but this is 2015. Based off Mikes attitude/demanor I believe/trust what he says and I honestly doubt these biggger riders riding his frames wouldn't if they were shitty or "weaker" I mean Dhers could have gone to anyone for a frame and he went to Laird. Dhers is the smartest one around. Laird frame with Tree parts lol. I still like FBM and I wanted them to build one but after seeing Mikes process and attention to detail I decided to have him build it.

Yeah, I would still want a few specific things that I know he won't do, and for good reason really, but it's MY frame and if I am willing to spend a crap ton of money on the LAST frame i would ever need, I might as well.

I like tucked seatstays with bullet tips nothing open ended. I like it to NOT rust. I want a dent proof downtube, and chainstays, i want an extra long head tube so i don't need spacers. I'd prefer a wishbone and whatever geo I like. I want it heat treated i want it to be 4.5 lbs and be long lasting and awesome looking, along with super thick dropouts and chain tensioners.

I know FBM or maybe even Standard would be willing to work with my persnickety ways. haha There are a few things on a frame that i don't think affect the strength that much, but really just how it looks. Like tucked seatstays versus the kind Mike does.

As long as my frame is the way I want, i don't care. I basically want the specs of a Soundwave frame with a better set of geometry. It's like impossible really, and i'm not about to spend that much for something that is only a bit better.

That's why going Laird is a good idea. For the price, you get a strong frame that's light, the perfect geo, and has a neat seat stay bridge of your choice. all for about 500$. Sure you could spend double that on something you literally get to choose EVERYTHING on, but it's not really gonna change that much.

I agree that it's yours and you want it your way and there are other outlets to get that acomplished but as of right now mike isn't able to do that, cant say I blame him.
