Creator Frame Fixture

Getting Started

The above video is an overview of and introduction to the whole fixture.
Unboxing and assembling The Creator Frame Fixture.

Above: How the rulers should read when the fixture is set up properly. Use a straight edge to project the reading. This information can be useful if you ever need to break the fixture down or re-configure it.

A Drive Side In Fixture is pictured. If your fixture is Drive Side Out the numbers are the same, but in mirror image locations — 180mm on the right side of the Seat Tube Plate and 10mm on the left etc.

FIXTURE SETUP VARIABLES

These are the fixture setup variables, which can be found in Bike CAD. Two linear variables (htx, hty) pertain to the location of the bottom, center of the head tube. Two linear variables pertain to the location of the dummy axle or rear hub center. One angular variable describes the head tube-seat tube difference. This number is the seat tube angle minus the head tube angle, not the other way around.

BOTTOM BRACKET ADAPTERS

Bottom Bracket .25mm Spacers for use under the BB Adapters:

S=(N-B)/2

S = Spacer stack

N = Named width on BB adapter

B = Beginning width of BB shell

Example – 73.5mm BB shell beginning width, 74mm named width on BB adapter, and one .25mm spacer under the BB adapter. This will center the BB shell in the frame fixture.

THE BENCH MOUNT STAND

This is the bench mount stand, which ships with the fixture and can be bolted to a bench or the rolling stand base – available separately.
