- New build – non UK steel content
Duggie, if you were not building bikes all the time you would have time to paint it!
Kiwijohn, yes it is a Rohloff HVS dropouts on the EVIL look like they will be a good alternative to an EBB or slot drops. Replaces my current FS and HT think it will do everything i will ever need.Posted 8 years ago
Thanks for the kind words chaps.
Comes in around the 26lb mark with the Rohloff, could maybe loose another pound with some pimp bits but will leave as is for now.
Welds and paint finish were about the best i have seen on a bike. Included was a choice of head badges, different coloured decals, and an Evil seat clamp….which is nice.
Can't wait to try it on trails that i know.Posted 8 years ago
Hungry monkey – it was a very unscientific "it feels 4 pounds lighter than a mates 30lb FS". so possibly is carrying another couple of pounds. Frame was weighed and came in at 6lb, forks are under 4lb the rest…..?
RustyNP – That is a large, i am 6ft and it fits me well with shortish stemPosted 8 years ago
Thanks for the feedback,
For those interested, link to official info below (yes there is an XL), geo on Silverfish site 2nd link.
Oh and they were in stock at CRC so you can have one by the weekend!Posted 8 years agoSvenMember
That is a neat way, even though one bike shop owner once told me that the rather tight bends would make shifting slightly worse, but I am sure it's okay. I used to have a frame with sliding dropouts for Rohloff's OEM1 axle plates which was fine but the cables were running under the chainstays and on my first ride a few years ago, I smashed the gear box on a rock, something that had never happened to me with a mech on the other side that sticks our way further.Posted 8 years ago
I now built up a Scandal where the Rohloff cables come neatly from the top along the seatstays without any bends, disadvantage is that the disc brake hose runs along the downtube. The torque is dealt with one of the real Monkey bones that I bought when I lived in California. Pictures will hopefully follow next week…
