Talbot discusses both theory and practice of building a lugged steel road frame, including building your own jigs. The emphasis is on hand labor, not machine tools -- he assumes you will miter your tube joints by hand with files and scrapers, not stick the tubes in a milling machine. There's an introduction to brazing and materials, too, though it's specifically *not* a beginner's guide to brazing -- Talbot suggests looking for a local vocational school to learn how to braze, since practice is essential. The design considerations apply no matter what construction method you plan to use, so this is still a useful book for the welders out there.
