    I found a Niner EMD 9 frame selling for $329 so I'm going with that instead. Will bring most of the components over from the Novara and then slowly upgrade.

    BDF what's the stack height on the headset that comes with the Goblin frame and is it an IS headset or Zero-stack? I'm try to make sure my fork will fit before I order one. I have just over 8" of steer tube and the stack on my Thomson stem is 40mm I would need a 22" frame.

    Thanks

    Its an IS headset, and I believe the top cap is about 10mm in height above the top of the HT.

    I'm a complete noob when it comes to IS headsets. How are they supposed to be adjusted to avoid excessive head tube wear or over-tightening? I have a Goblin by the way. It's a great bike.

    IS headsets should be treated no differently than Zero Stack ("ZS") headsets, or any other threadless headset set-up. Just ensure that the headset is adjusted tight enough so that there is no play or slop in the system and the bars turn freely.

    We are starting to move to IS style headsets on most of our bikes with the exception of longer-travel gravity-style bikes. It is the most common threadless headset standard and is easy for both consumers and shops to work on.

    Here's a good Park Tools article on this and the many other HS styles:

    Hope that helps!

    This is very tempting to buy and switch everything over from my green Goblin.

    I am still debating on getting one these frames and putting every piece I can off of my spare cross bike on it and make a monster gravel bike/cross bike...drop bars and all...

    I was thinking about this too before I bought my skyhawk. Just build up my first bike.... but that cost too much so I think it might be my second bike whenever I upgrade or want another.

    Yep. I think it would be cool in a different sort of way.

    I am looking at a Goblin as a rigid SS. Has anyone tried this?

    One of the guys here at the office (Doug) has a Goblin set up as a Single Speed with a singleator adapter set-up on the rear. He seems to really like it.

    I currently have a wahoo that is 2 sizes too small. I am thinking of purchasing this frame and transferring the stuff over. Currently the reba I have has a 6-3/4 steerer. Will that be long enough?

    For the money it looks like the bomb, where are the frames made? are there going to be any other colors available? My Sun rims are black and white letters and my hubs are gold and it will clash in My opinion,
