    Seems like they should, and yes, I bought the same Ti bolt set for my Lynskey.
    They can come with anything you want if you pay for the parts.

    The only downside I've found is that people like to steal them. Ti can also be flexy depending on how it's built, but my XL Pro29 is far from flexy. FWIW I weigh 190ish and race XC.

    A well built Ti hardtail frame will weigh slightly more than a similar carbon frame (.5 to 1 lb more depending), but 'should' last much longer. One of the beauties of Ti is you don't have to paint them and can refinish fairly easily. Also, IMO Ti frames are generally silky feeling vs springy steel or dead carbon.

    I will keep the Seven pictures going. A few changes to the bike, but I still love it.





    And my cross bike. Flipped the stem and ditched some of the red.

    a sc32 fork would be a good fit.

    Is it a standard frame ? What size ?
    Could you fit 2.4 tyre in the back ?

    It's a standard frame 18 inch size, they don't seem to keep them in stock, i waited 6 weeks for mine. Clearance on the chainstays is quite tight with my Nobby Nic 2.25 so i don't think it would take a 2.4. Very happy with it, good frame for the money.

    Cheers

    well loved, well used willits

    here's my contribution: 4 yrs old at this point and used for everything from commuting to singletrack riding to touring on pavement and of course long extended loaded trips down the continental divide. I still feel lucky to own it every time I throw a leg over it...

    i tend to go with pretty low pressure and have the terralogic about 25%-30% on, so that i dont bob around, but if i hit anything of any size i imediately get travel...i had a reba on before and the talas and terralogic, well, i wouldnt want to give them up....

    the terralogic doesnt stop it sagging correctly either, just stops the non-useful motion....

    dvo1, I was wondering what the new XTR cranks would look like with a Homebrewed chainring and I have yours looks good.
    Which crank is it though? The 2 chainring or 3?
    Cheers.

    A beautiful bike, although I wonder why you decided on sliders, as opposed to James' own HACS.
    Also the handle bar seems a bit higher than the saddle, more like a BMX posture. Any particular reason?

    Regarding the bling, I personally don't like colorful components; I prefer the frame to speak out and leave the rest in the background.
    I have also found out that when you bling your bike, you are never truly satisfied and always desire to make improvement and changes, not to mention that when the bike ages the components look more run-down than if in neutral colors. However, for a blinged out bike you did a tasteful job.

    Cheers!

    Hey Climber999

    Yes, I've had the choice but I prefered hooded sliders because the strenght of the chain stay and I know it's easier way to adjust the belt tension and...I prefer the look of sliders

    I have to cut the bar (today 800 mm) and adjust his height (35 mm of spacers below the bar).

    this is prototype no.1

    aim to get short chain stays ( currently 417 to 437) with adjustable dropout
    massive mud clearance at least 10mm between any part of the frame and a 2.4 tyre
    and suitable for hub gears, single speed, 10 speed and belt drive

    Hi Highlife dont worry your wallet is safe I have no intention just yet of producing it,,I am currently drawing up V2 but if i could find 10 interested people we could get it made at Lynsky

    I have a lighter narrower version of the dropout,,

    I am moving the adjustment range to make use of the clearance between the seat tube and the tyre,, so the chainstay length would be 405 -425 for the adjustable version

    the chainstay will also come down at the seat tube get it to run just obove the chain ,
    should stiffen the whole thing up this will give a little less tyre clearence but the chainstays will still be more than 10mm away from a 2.4 tyre

    How does the Rohloff do with the high belt tension - does it add much additional drag?

    This here's my Jones SpaceFrame, which I've had for 2.75 years. Not built especially light, which is a good thing considering how I ride. It's a good bike that I'm glad I got.



    Some nice bikes in here, but I can't stop drooling over the Vertigos.
