- WTF .. starting a new bike build
Frame came from UK Import.. Bearded Man .. apparently he has a few in stock.
It has a gear hanger too just not fitted in pic and there is a split in seat stay just before dropout to allow belt drive .. its a real swiss army knife bike 🙂
Just waiting on wheels etc … gonna go all black with everything else to tone it down a little.Posted 6 years ago
I did look at the weight as per stated weights on Van Dessel site .. most of the weight is in the forks though so going with a carbon front fork with a zero stack headset to keep the geometry good as standard fork is non suspension corrected.
Not weighed frame alone but not too concerned over weight 🙂
It will definitely be monster cross inspired when build startsPosted 6 years ago
Frame can be built as a 29er, cross or monster cross..
No adjustable top tube but figure leaving some stack height on fork steerer will allow options when switching from carnegies and drop bars.
Only briefly rode on dirt drops but I could see a use for them on a long distance bike packing set upPosted 6 years ago
