I took this pic from the Flybikes website, and they said "invest casting stays bridge"...Clockwork Bikes said:Those are hydro-formed Al.

Anyway, is there a way to get this kind of tubes ?
I really doubt they'll help me. I already contacted them few years ago concerning a new product idea, but they don't consider ideas that don't come from her company. I know their frames are made in Taiwan, so they probably never had this tube in hand, or maybe the prototype...I imagine calling Fly bikes would be step #1 in finding out if you can get some.
Yes, but I would like to made a quantity of 50 or more...and I think it's too much time consuming...crux said:Why not just turn some on a lathe? Design looks simple enough to copy. Start wit ha solid rod profiling the outside as you wish. One satisfied you could bore a hole down the center if your concerned about weight. Just a thought
Fly frames are all 4130 of some kind, although they tend to just be listed as CRMO in the catalogues.customfab said:The wonderful website for Fly bikes doesn't mention a material spec either.
Thank you for your help, but I already have both of them and they are terribly small, something like 25 mm long...pyranha said:Not exactly what is pictured, but very similar in shape. I have never used them, so I can not speak to their dimensions. A phone call to Nova might be in order.
I didn't know this site. The idea behind the site is really good. It's a shame their software is so poor and I talk as a Dassault System (CATIA & SolidWorks) teacher.Schmitty said:Draw the part, submit to emachineshop.com and be done with it. Getting anything cast will be many thousands of dollars.
