Made to measure steel gravel action from DeAnima
This is a Gravel version of the DeFer Strada, with flat mount discs. It uses the same front triangle as the DeFer Strada. The front triangle uses round butted tubes with a 31.7mm seat tube, 35mm top tube, 44mm down tube and a 46mm head tube. The rear custom triangle uses dropouts cnc machined from blocks of stainless steel for thru axle 142mm x 12mm. The cable routing is inter changeable with mechanical external and electronic internal.
The production of a TIG welded frame like the DeFer Strada or Gravel starts with the selection of the tubes. The tubes are cut and then mitered to ensure that there is perfect interface between the tubes at the point that they will be welded. The tubes are placed into a jig and tack welded, enough to keep the frame assembled, the frame is then fully welded outside of the jig, allowing the frame to alter as its welded and heated. Once welding is finished the frame is then realigned on an alignment table. All the frame accessories as required are now brazed onto frame. The frame is then cleaned and prepared for painting.
