28" frame.

It’s easy to extend a United ($34) frame to fit any wheel you want. Just cut the
legs, insert the required length of extra steel tubing (10 speed handlebar
material works great!), and stitch it back together.

I have a 28" (700C) wheel that I built on a suzue hub with the best of
intentions of welding up a uni frame from some aircraft tubing I have lying
around, but have somehow not managed to do so.

Given my obvious slothfulness, I ask the group for recomendations on a strong
stiff frame for that will accept the wheel. Optimally, I would like to use the
Miyata bearing holders but I am not married to it.

Suggestions?

RE: 28" frame.

That is a very interesting idea! I do have a bit of machining equipment.
(Sherline minature lathe and mill) I will look around for what I can find! jd

If you can machine a bit, you might try a mountain bike suspension front fork
with the Miyata bearing holders bolted onto the bottom. Some suspension forks
are quite adaptable for this, with straight bottoms that are almost flat. The
Miyata holders give you the extra height you’ll need. A local bike shop has some
for as little as $75 Canadian ($50 US) from MTB’s they have upgraded.
