Walty Geometry

Hello,

I am trying to order a single speed frame with disc mounts from Walty.
I barely know what shapes are, and the kind Walty rep is asking me for design details, geometry, bottom bracket, etc.
Can someone point me in the right direction?
Do I send over the build chart of my current bike and hope for the best?

Thank you for your time.

This is why many prefer to deal with a builder who understands this stuff and via their experience can help guide the customer through the design process.

I would suggest starting to read up on frame geometry. There are many sources for this info from printed books to interweb. Way too much for this post. After you understand the terms and how they relate to each other then go to the build sheet you reference and with this new education look at it again for deeper insight. Only after that would I consider sending Walty and hard guidelines. Andy

Andy,
Thank you for your reply.
I would love the opportunity to work with a frame builder in my country, my challenge is budgetary.
I'll never ride a carbon bicycle, so steel or Ti only for me.
