    Good job! Form Prevail

    22.2 pounds of pure bliss.

    Really pleased with the bike and the build process. I can't say enough good things about Daryl and co. at Form Cycles.

    Pretty bike

    but why would a mountain biker wear a CU jersey?

    Thanks guys - that smile in the first pic got a lot bigger soon into the maiden voyage in Sedona. Where else can you pick up a killer new bike at the builder's house/shop and from there enjoy some sweet singletrack?

    All correct on the jersey's - I spend too much time on the road(bike) but am a MTB'er at heart and am also a CU alum in a foreign land (MN).

    Correct on the tube also - 'twas the end of the second ride in Moab.

    It's a continuous tube of Ti. Very clean. Daryl's using the FSA SLK integrated "post" in the seatmast. It has, I believe, about 20mm of adjustability via spacers.

    We cut the mast to some much-debated specs and I'm happy to report that it came out perfect the first time.

    Super cool/clean. I wonder if CC would be open to making a Thudbuster insert that worked the same way....

    That bike looks just right. Very thoughtful design. Should last a lifetime.

    How does the seat mast affect the ride?

    Threw a leg over a Form at Bike and Bean last time out there - very nice.

    It's OK, just blame the boner on the bike.

    Off topic here, but baggy shorts are indeed "cool" but not nearly as functional, IMHO, as a nice pair of bibs.

    Back on topic - sweet bike.

    Honestly I'm not sure without riding the same bike with a standard post. Daryl at Form would probably be able to describe the differences more accurately.

    I can say that compared to my Superfly (with virtually the same wheels and tires) the ride quality feels almost like full suspension. That's more likely to be due to the Ti and the seatstays.

    I hope if you ever decide to sell it you find a buyer who is within 20mm of your size

    I really like that design though. Very purdy bike.

    Very nice looking bike, like the seat mast, looks very clean.
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.

    What is the frame weight of a Size Large Prevail, BB30 and internal cable routing?
