    Inspired by Mrazek?

    Like the idea behind rear drop-out. What increments do the notches work on?

    How stiff is that dangling bottom bracket? Also like the short chain-chainstays..

    there are no notches in the dropout it rotates around the single rear bolt and uses the front two to clamp it gives 20mm of adjustment 417 to 437 chainstay length

    the dropout is very stiff , but a little wide i overbuilt the first prototype to ensure i got a ridable bike first time the bike is good it's not as stiff as my ragley td-1 it gives a fast nimble ride and climbs well

    i am working on version 2 at the moment

    No problem at this time. Belt tension is not really strong and very easy to check with the tension gauge. Otherwise, Rohloff hub add additional drag but not the belt (I tried before with a chain)

    Haven't ridden her on a trail in almost a year. Spent a few hours last night getting her good to go again. New Stans in the tires, clean the chain, air in the fork, etc. Thinking of doing a local XC race on Sunday.

    Oddly enough, I did order red and gold chainring bolts. But they were the wrong size for the XX

    Ordered my new Carver 29er Ti frame at the end of March and got a call yesterday saying it was in New York at customs. Not sure how long it may be there but getting excited. Going with x9 3x9 drivetrain and Arch white rims, Hope pro 2 red hubs with black spokes, carbon seat post and handlebars. It maybe not perfect but it'll be mine, (can't use 2x10 for the riding I do).

    Here's my 1x9 Titus Fireline. It's been a great bike, but sadly it's on eBay to pay for grad school...

    As an owner of Ti frames and someone who is regularly kidded about the perfect cleanliness of my bikes... I should point out to those of you that don't already know it, Pledge furniture polish makes the Ti frames GLOW!
    Keep the rotors/pads clear of the goop though.

    my new ti El Mariachi


    well here is my new El Mariachi. I had a Niner Air9 that cracked so my lbs hooked me up with the El Mariachi frame. This pic is before I swapped out the pewter seatpost clamp for the red one I had and also before I adjusted my cockpit a bit. Still need to fine tune the bars/grip probably going to a Pro Moto carbon flat bar and some Ergon GX1's. after the first ride. This is such a nice frame. I am very happy with my purchase.

    I wonder, how does the Salsa Ti etching hold up?
    Can any owner chime in?

    9 months later and the etching still looks great, despite a few mishaps with transport and gravity...

    Nice looking Ti El Mar. Not to derail this thread but, how would compare those two? I'd be interested to know how the fit and handling compare between the Air9 and El Mar. Did you swap the same components over?
    I buy stuff from Milltown Cycles.
