I hope no one is tired of seeing my KPX frames. This one is a little different and I've named the design the KliP-X. The forks are a little taller to help accommodate the clips, the fork gap is more of a semicircle than the original KPX and the handle is slightly modified for my grip.
This was my first attempt at building a frame with clips. I don't know if I made it more complicated than it needs to be but they seem to work well. Here are some build pics:
Filed the edges and sanded the profile
Testing the clips
Roughing in some contours
I had a nice satin finish and then decided to try some Alumi-Black on the frame. That was a big mistake and it just made a blotchy mess of the whole thing. I sanded the Alumi-Black off but the finish still shows stains and could be a lot better. Maybe I'll redo it in the future...probably not.
Here's a closer look at the clip design.
