    Hi all, would this frame, make a good 29er MTB? i.e. going custom with this design, provided the frame design is not copyright of course.

    as a custom it is pretty but I would be worried about crown clearance if you are planning on running a suspension fork. The down sloped down tube gets even closer to the fork crown so that could be a problem. If you are planning on running a uni-crown rigid though, probably not an issue.

    I love the lines though, the dropped BB is cool and would give you some clearance there, sorta elevated chainstay without the elevation but it would certainly limit front ring size if you are to run a single speed and it looks like it may prevent a front derailleur.

    thanks for the input, both my rides, Zion 737 and Inbred 26" are rigid bikes, and I ride wherever my friends on their FS go.

    Yes, now that you mentioned it, I can see a problem with the fork clearance. all in all, there is potential in this design, like Inglis and Retrotec
