That is lush. Some of their stuff on FB and Insta looks realy nice as well.Posted 2 years ago
Looks lovely. Not a fan of hard tails, so I personally would not buy one, but it looks spot on.
Not convinced on the oval cogs howeverPosted 2 years ago
RB – how are you getting on with the pinion box? I take it your adapting to the shifting easy enough.
With the cranks, do you have to use the pinion ones as I’ve read they are fairly chunky… Could you run another or get adapters made up?

There were some recycled carbon cranks (link) in the news a couple of years ago, but the manufacturer seems to have gone out of business in the meantime.Posted 2 years ago
I like the Pinion gearbox and was already familiar with it, the shifting suits me very well and I think being able to shift without having to pedal is brilliant. To everyone else I say give it a try before dismissing it or spending your own money on one.
Cranks are very much proprietary and are more a thing of function than beauty. Doesn’t bother me, I’ll have scuffed them up in no time anyway.Posted 2 years ago
RB – I’ve got a pinion frame coming and have only had limited time (read few hours) out on it thus far. Just curous to see how your fairing with it.
RE the cranks, it’s not the look (in fact I quite like the look) it’s the weight. If there was an adapter to take a ~600g xtr / middleburn / RF / E13 there is a fair saving there, esp if you already have a set in the garage! It would be the easiest way to shave some of the bulk.
Surprising one of the smaller component firms hasn’t got on it, with more and more people (BETD???)Posted 2 years ago

What is it? More detail needed please 🙂Posted 2 years ago
one of those Deviate Cycles – Guide frames. Should be here in a couple weeks. Love the high pivot / idler / pinion combo.Posted 2 years ago
Oh nice, I will be really interested to hear how you get on with that. Cranked had one on their stand at the bike show and I was trying to get a look at how the shock and linkage were all below the swingarm pivot. A very interesting bikePosted 2 years ago
