    I guess he wasn't lying when he said he wouldn't do another frame with an offset seat tube, hence the bendy action. I didn't have the means to wave a bunch of money at him, so I just ordered the mass produced, slightly heavier version (yelli screamy).

    Saw niner carbon fork, seat tube won't allow for such short stays, sliders with a hanger... This going to be more of a racy type bike than the last one ?

    short stay, 1x9 or 1x10 bike tuned more to racing and long distance riding than rough and tumble.

    Initially tapered niner fork, will run with suspension and or singlespeed sometimes if required...

    Curious, how short will the CS be with that bent seat tube?

    Nice..

    That is awesome!

    Having tried a short stayed 29er, I cannot go back the the vanilla 17.5" CS frames. No matter what the critics say about a frame being "more" than CS length.

    Can't wait to see this built up.

    LUCKY YOU.

    ha! yeah, given the recent monsoon it feels like it! we've had some pretty good days, just not many!...i did get the opportunity a few months back to ride a route that is usually a massive bog trot for quite a way in the cairngorm...it was outstanding. a pic or two of that route is up on the jones website...scotland is a hard mistress...she can be so incredible, but is often hid under a pretty cold, harsh and dark exterior!.....

    Nice! If you don't mind me asking what is the head tube angle? I'm having a very similar bike built by Hubcap Cycles in State College PA as we speak. I understand the excitement ...

    Thanks. I'm going with 70.5 on the HTA. The trail comes out at about 82 mm. Yeah I know Matt F. The bike I'm having built will be similar to Matts with a couple of exceptions, tapered HT and gears.

    Any plans to come riding in State College?

    dRjOn- You sir have great taste in bike design and geometry! Congrats, can't wait to see pics of it in action.

    Going with a Loop bar on it as well?

    What Suspension fork are you going with on this one? I have Eriksen building me a very similar bike right now....for a tapered Niner Carbon and/or a Fox. Have not made up my mind on a Terralogic or a RLC.
