Fascinating concept by Ralf Holleis as part of his diploma thesis where he built his own custom track bike frame with 3D printed stainless steel lugs glued together with carbon fiber tubes.

VRZ 1. is a track bike frame with 3d printed stainless steel lugs glued together with carbon fiber tubes.

this method allows to build custom frames in a short period of time.
you could change the geometry to what ever you like, then the lugs gets generated by a software.
now we just need to print the parts finish them and glue the frame together.
