I don't think the angle at the top is an issue. Just weld or braze it up and it will be fine.

When you buy regular dropouts they don't make different ones for different seat stay angles. You want...

Sliders/rockers are mostly for the ability to have single speed tensioning ability with vertical dropouts or discs, or to minimize wheelbase. Some people use it to minimize the wheelbase when they...

I learned by reading the Paterek manual several times before picking up a torch. I did have basic high school brazing from shop class 30 years before deciding to build a frame, and remembered only a...

Here's a shot showing another way to hold a frame during alignment checking. The head tube is held in what's a form of bench centers (in my case made by Alex Meade) and the seat tube is held up with...

I don't think about BB drop at all. BB drop is a driven dimension. It's the measurement you refer to when setting up your frame jig.

IMO a frame should be designed using BB height. That means you...

The touring frame I built this year has a BB drop of 9cm. I did it for two reasons, stand over height and handlebar to saddle offset. The extra 1-1.5cm in drop affords higher tire profile without...

Don't get me wrong. A production Specialized/Trek/Giant in the $2-4000 range represents amazing value if a 54-58cm size range bike fits you. They are well designed and engineered and ride really...

I think any frame stiffness differences (between more or less Bb drop) is a minor amount. Likely less then a few PSI in one's tires or a half turn of the spoke nipples change in tension. Now how the...

I'm unaware of such a database.

Back when I got serious about riding and later framebuilding in the 1990's I made my own spreadsheet of specs of frames in my size. Take away was that there was...

I have seen those storage units that have light and power. I think that's pretty common at private airports. DC is a real problem area for that, real estate is really expensive. I'm a little...

It just wouldn't work, because you still have to fit a tire between the stays. You can make them as wide as you want at the bottom bracket shell, but they have to become narrow enough to fit a tire...

The Salsa Journeyman (https://salsacycles.com/bikes/journeyman_650b/2019_journeyman_apex_1_650_yellow) is an incredible value. This is a bike you definitely want to add to your list for a test ride.
