    My SS Gellie Custom. First shot is pre ride 2 years ago. Columbus tubing with a mixture of White Industries, Paul and Thomson kit. I know V Brakes are so 1990's but I am a dinosaur. Is set up as fixed for races at the moment for extra laughs.

    I wanted to be able to run std gears, hub gears SS and maybe even belt

    so this is the first version it rides really well nimble and fast climbs well
    Whoa whoa whoa !! Talk about out of the blue. 16.4" chainstays huh ?

    You need to start a new thread about this whole project. Tell us more about how you got it made if you can. Are you going to be selling them ? That is really interesting.

    I'm enjoying the RIP all decked out as an XC race bike these days....

    Rip post L.A. lap

    A little under 28 pounds for the size XL.
    The 14 warmest years have all occurred in the 16 years since 1997.

    here are a couple of links to some coverage of my bike ,, currently it's a bit of an experiment , to see how a very short chainstay 29er will work

    i am currently riding this around it;s certainly nimble and quick and clibs really well but could be a little stiffer, lighter and narrower at the rear ,, so I am currently working on the drawings for the next version

    this will have the option of going even shorter on the chainstay

    i would like to produce a limited batch but not sure enough people will be interested

    Love the idea of the design but I'm sure it's hard to control flex at the BB? Still keep us up to date.

    BB flex big time. Why do think no one makes frames that way?

    I wanted to build a short chainstay bike with lots of mud clearence

    this version isnt too bad , but not stiff enough to run a belt drive , but some diamond frames cant either

    I may be wrong but what is the difference between this frame and a single pivot suspension bike in terms of structure

    i am currently working on the next one

    i have decided to not have the option to run a FD which means i can lower the chainstay down the seat tube

    bigger downtube

    and redo the adjustable dropout currently it gives a chainstay length of 417 - 437 it will now be 407 - 427 now there is no FD

    Flex is there with some FS designs. But, it's hard to feel with the suspension working and some of the force will be transmitted into the suspension. With FS there is going to be a pivot with gussets to add strength.

    Add another Kona to the crowd, here's my race bike a 2009 Kona King Kahuna with a set of Industry nine wheels and a few upgrades here and there.







    I have a rigid Misfit too, but it's due for some fresh photos.

    Had to have something appropriate for testing new tires...

    So I just finished building this up:









    And I've still got the hardtail:



    And the XC Full Suspension:



    Can you tell I like this wheelsize?

    HOLY.... Is that the Prime? Still in prototype stage, eh?



    It's no Prime, but I love my Paradox:

    Yes, that's the Prime. It's a pre-production frame. Honestly I don't see many changes made for production- just a couple refinements like the orientation of the ISCG05 tabs. Fun, fun, fun!

    I really dig your Paradox. How's that seatpost been (reliability-wise)?

    I have two KS i950 posts. Regularly lubed & maintained.

    One is from 2008/09 when they first came out - no problems.

    The one purchased last summer ... failed first ride. ala pogo stick.

    Sent it to KS, back in a week, all is fine now.

    What a sleeper! It probably only weighs around 19 and yet looks for all the world like some old fat tire cruiser bike but it is actually riding on sew ups with ultra light wheels that spin up super fast.
