Brano Meres created his own carbon fiber bike frame after being inspired by one made by Damon Rinard. He has some very interesting pictures of the whole process on his site. I particularly like the frame jig he created out of wood to hold the foam base material.

Everything began after I read the article “How I Made a Carbon Fiber Bike in My Garage” by Damon Rinard. Thanks to this excellent article, I decided to make a MTB frame, even though I’ve never dealt with carbon composites before (except carbon brakeboosters I made for my bike long ago). I always wanted to own this kind of frame.
