    This Jordan lad seems much more pleasant that I was lead to believe..

    Damn it.. Stw needs a new hate figure! Back to ling?

    People on STW are reasonable?

    I’ve also been lied to! hehehe.

    Think about it though, I love bikes so much I put my life on hold to make them.

    I prefer to have a 1:1 relationship with the customer for better or worse. Its a personal relationship.

    Question – if I bought one of your bikes and 6 months later it failed (cracked or whatever) through no fault of my own what would response be?

    Their new single pivot full suspension frame is very keenly priced. The more I see of these guys the more I think my next bike could be one of theirs.

    I really like their stuff, and their profile , interaction with people via podcasts FB Instagram etc. Cool little company that’s going places!

    I wish then them the best,I mean, why wouldn’t you? Got to give it a go in life.

    The only thing is they seem much better as a marketing company than a bike manufacturer?

    It’s a really odd paradox as they embrace many of the concepts they seem to hate?

    Anyway,I really do wish them good luck but can’t help but think they have missed their true calling.

    Oh FFS how did you do that wookster?

    pictonroad you can have a borrow of my mixer any time so long as you don’t leave it encrusted in cement.  It’s the electric 240v version if that matters and you are serious

    That looks pretty good.

    Be interested to see the final build and hear how it rides.

    Looks like I have the hang of pictures. This was last weekend. More pics once I put the final touches to  it and get out for a ride this weekend

    I assume those chainrings were on offer or something?

    That actually looks really nice and not too bonkers. Looks like my old setavento frame  but stretched out. keep an eye on where the seatstays meet the seattube.

    Yes, they were on offer and since oval was the same price as round…..

    Here you go @jimbosussexmtb just don't tell @jordan.chaos about my frivolous use of a pair of oval chainrings

    Ha! I was talking about the colour, but yeah, that too…

    Cant quite tell from the pictures, but are you using oval chainrings on the gearbox bike?

    If so, wont the position of the ‘ovality’ in the ring get out of sync with the position of the crank arms,hence leading to wierd pedalling effects?

    Two ovals of the same size synchronised

    Won’t that totally negate the effect of the ovality?

    I wouldn’t usually go with green but got some hope brakes for a good price that happened to have team green bits so went with it.  Sick green on a Sick bike

    Yes and that is the intention.  Only reason I have fitted them is to give a mind buggering optical effect whilst riding

    I really like that!
    What’s your thoughts on the frame? Looks great quality.
    How does it ride? Much noticeable drag in the pinion?

    I guess you’re going to have to be pretty careful when you change the chain to ensure the rings stay in the exact same position relative to each other. or even if the chain comes off just riding along.  I guess even one tooth out of sync could cause problems? A bit like the cambelt on a car…

    Not sure I could be bothered with the faff, prob would have just gone for round rings, given the same price as ovals.

    You are right, it is just me being silly and it will be extra hassle every time I take the wheel out but one tooth out I probably won’t notice. But 90 degrees out could be like riding square wheels😀

    Cokie, give me a chance I’ve only done two laps of the garden with no grips😀 The frame looks great, some of the dimensions may be unusual but nothing to concern me. I know from previous experience that any drag in the gearbox is not discernible to me and I love the pinion. They ain’t cheap though so I’d always recommend trying a gearbox before buying.  More info will follow once I have the bike finished
