The Jiggernaut can help anyone build a customized, high quality bicycle frame. It is an affordable bicycle frame assembly jig. It is made from CNC routed, 3/4″ Medium Density Fibreboard (MDF). Holds the following tubes diameters: 25.4, 28.6 and 31.8 mm. Also, holds tubes of larger diameter, or even tubes with non-circular cross-sections with side holding stand-offs.

One of the best ways to build your own customized bikes is to use a frame jig, a piece of equipment that lets you lay out the parts of the frame to your specifications and holds them in the place while you assemble the pieces. But at a price of $1000 or even more, most frame jigs are intended for large-scale bike producers, not for the DIY enthusiasts who want to build bikes for themselves on the weekend.

While studying bicycle frame building, Mixed Media Engineering specialists developed the thing that is really nice to have when creating your own frames. Basically, the frame jig holds all of the tubes in 3D space while you fit and weld them. The Jiggernaut begins its life as a half sheet of ¾” thick MDF and is CNC routed into an easily assembled, lightweight jig that can be packed flat for transportation. Once unpacked, the jig is transformed into a 3D structure using the included fasteners. The jig is highly adjustable and can accommodate most types of frame geometries and tube sizes.

To make the process of the bicycle frame creation even easier, Mixed Media Engineering offers kits that include not only the Jiggernaut, but a tube kit and accessories for DIY building of a beautiful lugged bicycle frame with track dropouts or for a mountain bike.
