    Anyone know where to purchase universal head tubes?

    Id like to build my own frame, and would like to start with a head tube.

    I will also need rear wheel brackets (lugs).

    Is there a manufacture that produces such items?

    Thanks in advance.

    Call Andy at http://www.gilmourbicycles.us/ I'm sure he will sell you a head tube cut and set up for whatever you need. He has motorcycle experience also and has a wealth of building knowledge in all the different materials.

    I'm no expert on frame building, but I'm guessing that whether you buy a head tube or cut your own, it's probably pretty important to know your steerer tube length and diameter first.
