Mitre 10

Ever wonder where Mitre 10 got its name from? Neither have I. But mitres are what I’m working on this week.  I’ve printed off my mitre templates from the ever awesome BikeCad and wrapped them around the poles I intend to use for the frame. Here’s a pic:

Tomorrow I’ll use my trusty Dremel to cut, gouge, grind and sand those curves into things of beauty. Joy!

  1. love everything 🙂 do you have a reason to mitre the tubes? given that you end up wrapping them so thickly?

  2. Hi J, The mitring helps make the lugs stronger as there can be no flex or movement from the joints due to the butting of materials. This makes the carbon fibre have to do less work, meaning I can use less of it!
