In the world of framebuilding, just muttering “investment cast” will get you some nasty looks. But in the world of mass-production, it’s an every day technology. That is, until you start to manufacture entire headtubes. Now I know this is relatively old news but it’s the first I’ve heard of it. We The People have started to investment cast their head tubes and seat tube clusters, specifically on their C.R.E.A.M. frames.

You can see all the detail shots and read up on their theories here. Don’t forget to check out their frames, in all their production-quality glory here. Honestly, this is one of the most creative uses I’ve seen in regards to a mass-produced frame. Very innovative indeed. Many thanks to Dr. Tony Fast for the heads on this one.
