New Frame

I've started on the next road frame.  This one will feature a titanium brake cable guide as well as internal Di2 wiring and battery placement.  This will be the first frame featuring thin twin seat stays.
Here is the BB86 tube with generous Di2 wiring passages cut  to allow the wiring to be tucked up inside the tubes easily.
This frame has a large down tube with an OD of 1.74", pretty close to the 44mm ID head tube for InSet headsets.
The BB joint ready to sand, clean and glue.
 The twin 0.55 OD seat stays are widely spaced which should make it easier to get the carbon to compact between them under vacuum.
