This is our third model. We started designing the moulds for this frame in the spring of 2017 and after various protypes we are ready to put the frame into production. We decided on a set of tubes specificity for disc brakes using the flat mount standard. For the layup of the tubes, like the Unblended, we use a mixture of Toray T800 3k and T800 UD. This is not an Unblended frame with a disc mount, we have reworked all the tubes with new profiles, a new rear end and also some new methods in the actually construction of the frame.
To make an AMG frame the production starts with the tubes being formed in the moulds and being cured. Once the order arrives we start cutting and mitering the tubes to the required size, these are placed into a jig and glued and then wrapped with carbon fibre – more info here. This way of building allows us to personalize the geometry based on the client. The frame takes about 2 days to make from start to finish and requires multiple visits to the oven for curing and at various stages. Once the frame is ready for painting it is sanded by hand to remove the surface gloss.
