    Hmm...those girls have shirts just painted on, no? I think I wouldn't be rubbing my nipple. Maybe part of that crazy Euro. mating ritual?

    So I was over at the Canfield online shop looking at ordering the frame and there I find a 29inch wheelset listed too. The site lists the set as available in QR or 15mm front and 150x12 rear. Correct me if I'm wrong or newbish, but doesn't the website list the yelli as having a 135x10 rear? Will the wheelset work with the frame? Does anybody know anything about the wheelset, such as rims and hubs?

    pretty sure that's a typo -- makes no sense to sell a wheelset w/ a QR front hub and a 150 mm rear hub.

    I'm really interested to hear some ride reports on this frame. I had been looking at the Yeti Big Top, but the shorter chainstays and triple water bottle mounts, not to mention the lower price tag have me very intrigued. I'm especially curious to know if this frame is harsh or compliant, as aluminum hardtails go--there seems to be so much variation.

    no offense, but many people tend to think of 29ers more as a category of bikes than as a wheel size that can be applied to different categories of bikes. Short stays can make a bike feel more "lively", "playful" or "nimble" and you will be able to turn the bike a bit easier with your body, but the steering alone will still be slower and will force you to use your body more to be maneuverable
    another +1

    In the thread of the 29er I built (with 67.5 degree head angle with a 120 mm fork), there were a few people who mentioned that they required a 71 or 72 degree head angle to turn - yeah, I understand - they just don't have the turning skills to properly turn a bike, anyway, and they usually can't/don't get their butts out of the seat to turn. It's no wonder most 29ers are built for riders without bike handling skills!

    I'm loving my 67.5 degree HA/12" BB/ 16-5/8" CS 29er!
    May the air be filled with tires!

    So are the Brothers done hamming it up with the painted Euro wenches yet? I want pics and details!!!! (Of the bike, not the wenches. Though you can feel free to include pics/details of the wenches as well )

    Pics of the three frame colors side by side would be nice. A shot of the chainstays with a known high volume tire mounted to a wide rim would make me happy as well

    We get it, you built a bike and have sick bike handling skills. Save the self exposition for STR .

    Shurely sum mistake - nothing costs 400 bucks to send international

    But it makes it equate with the UK price...

    If the frames were shipped straight to the UK distributor from the factory, instead of via Canfield in US surely that would be much cheaper?

    Nigel, not so. The quote from Fedex to ship your FSR if, I remember correctly, was almost $400.

    I just shipped a full bike from California to England, via US Postal priority mail, insured, for $90.

    That rate seems way high.

    Yes, I've also shipped to England for $90 with USPS. I also had one arrive damaged with USPS. Go and get an insured quote with a shipping company and see what it costs.

    They are most definitely smoking some form of cRaCk Guess they're doing like all those infomercials and making their money on the shipping I know my Banshee sure didn't cost anywhere near $400 US once it was shipped by Banshee who would do a lot more business with FedEx etc than me. I think this will be a major hurdle for them if these prices are for real.

    I got as far as the paypal log in and I saw no shipping costs at all? I'm wondering if the new price includes shipping ?
