Frame Refinements for the Locost

aveyard_locost_jan5_2011_2

I’ve been working on some tweaks to the frame design that solve a couple of problems. Mostly regarding the curved tube that goes along the side of the frame. I’ve altered the angle of the tube and moved the connection point to the top tube to the rear shock mount. This increases the angle of the bottom joint for easier coping and welding. Moving the top joint rearward removes one joint with 7 tubes into one with 5 and one with 4. I also prefer the overall look from the side angles.
