    I think that the most difficult thing to do will be the Derailleur hanger, because they're unique to the bike and have to be straight as an arrow. If you crash they're designed to fail to protect your frame, so I would suggest making a few of them.

    Hi Alec, a strong recommendation I have when you reach the point where you are finished with welding on the frame, send the frame somewhere to have it normalized. Chromoly likes to crack right next to the welds If it isn’t normalized

    Alec! I have some encouragement for you for GTAW/Tig welding! 1. More arc length, and the welding at the end of the video looked like it. The earlier welding shows dips in the arc's brighteness, which usually occurs when the tungsten is getting super close, or touching the weld puddle, or the filler metal is almost touching the tungsten. Practice with a friend reading out the voltage for you from the welding machine. Try to keep between 11-16 volts for this thin wall tubing, even pushing 18 volts would be fine if the weld passes bends. 2. The filler metal size, although small, may be too large to easily fabricate with the thin wall tubing. Ideally, the wire size would be comparable, if not smaller in size. If you have GMAW/Mig welding machine that uses ER70S-2 or ER70S-6 .035" Dia wire, just try welding with that wire with your Tig process. 3. I noticed you tried using pulse half way through the video--that's a good idea here, but probably not needed. Use that to prevent blowing thru the part, but don't use it to melt larger dia filler metals. 4. Swapping to a larger gas cup was a good idea. 5. As the part heats up, lowering amps can help. Foot petals are great, but using finger tip controls are often easier to use for tubing. Generic part# example: PXLFTC-6 . It can be zip tied to the torch's body to run by hand rather than foot. I have to use it in a roll cage build, since alot of the out of position welding that I've been working on has no foot access to start with. Cheers!

    Steel frames have some spring to them so they have a tenancy to absorb some trail vibration. Aluminum is very rigid, and passes the vibrations to the rider.
