I'm thinking about having a custom Titanium/Carbon gravel frame made.
I would like the design to be a bit special, and therefore I would like it to come with a ISP in carbon, dropped seat stays, and with mono/wishbone seat stays.
I would like to hear what the opinion are on the three details, and if its a bad idea to combine all three in a frame.
The dropped stay's and mono stay might work against each other, since the dropped stays will allow the ISP to move more backwards, and the mono stays will make the rear triangle more stiff? Can anybody advise me?
And will the dropped seat stays be critical if they allow the carbon tube to twist more backwards?
I have attached a picture of my first iteration together with a reference picture of a mono stay:
For reference, a photo of a frame with monostays is below.
NEW additional approach for the frame geometry What are you guys viewpoint on a triple triangle geometry (GT Style) together with the dropped stays and Carbon ISP?
