    I like it. Any details about the frame? Chinese build?

    It's Chinese. The welding and overall finish is surprisingly good. A friend and I designed it for him to race on.

    Here is the slightly modified geometry based on his having raced it in the Wisconsin Offroad Race Series.

    Thought so. Looks really good though. What's he say about the ride quality itself? What was he riding before?

    He was riding a GT 29er, but has ridden just about everything.

    He said the handling and ride are awesome .. and he finished in the top 10 in the Elite class. so it is fast.

    Titan Product. You can get a direct quote through Alibaba.

    Their minimum order is 4 frames, but they will do one-offs for prototyping. A one-off will run you the better part of a grand with shipping.

    Doesn't look to have a brace by the rear brake?
