You'll be seeing number of these disc brake 'cross frames all going to the same team in N.C. Not all the frames are disc brake , maybe about half. This frame is # 9 of 12 in the # 2 aluminum batch of the summer. I'm working on # 10 and hope to have the rest ready to send out to heat treatment by the end of the week.
I'm getting a pretty good groove on these frames right now but as it gets closer to the end of the batch I know I'll have to really try not to hurry and keep the quality where it needs to be. It is a delicate balance between efficiency and attention to detail in fit and geometry. This shit ain't easy-in technical terms at least.
