    Here is my new Swarf Cycles hardtail

    17.5 inches
    23.7 inch TT
    16.5 inch CS when in middle of slider
    Head angle 66 degrees (sagged)
    Seat angle 73.5 (Sagged)

    Spec is 853 Main tubes, the down tube being an 853 DZB, 631 44mm headtube. Columbus stays, and paragon sliders (Rohloff drop outs)

    My mate built it for me mates rates as he is starting out with his own frame building setup. His first build was a full suspension bike, and he is working on a new full suss design at the moment.

    The swing arms looks familiar.

    Hi, yes it was, that's him. It's done many many hard miles since then.

    Well I had a TransAM 26er, sold it for a long travel Santa Cruz Butcher and after 2 season of slogging around a flex, bobbing, high maintanance full suspension bike I sold and it a just ordered a 2013 TranAM 29er frame.

    I really love hardtails for daily trail riding and I was so impressed when I demoed a 29er last year I had to have one.

    New bike pics to come soon!

    interesting... so many of you use platform pedals.... I'll try it. I use Time ATAC clipless that makes me feel safer over rough rocks.

    They make me nervous. I use them on my road bike and used to have them on my mtb, but my skills have improved and with the more challenging terrain and higher speeds, I feel more comfortable knowing I can put my foot down around a corner or find footing quicker when I can't get up an obstacle.

    Thanks! He rides everything on that bike from dirt jumps to XC to downhill! I have a GT Ruckus 1.0 dirt jump frame that I am building up but it is a slow process.

    Raised the seat, installed Vredestein tires, longer stem since this pic. DJ in the woods is very interesting! Top-o-the-money parts here.

    • 831 1.125 fork OEM version
      2011 Magura MAG SL's, venti rotor 160/180
      2011 Shimano XT 15mm wheelset in tubeless
      2012 Vredestein Black Panther Etreme Tires TR
      X.9 Short cage 1x9 setup to keep chain slap to a minimum
      NOS 2002 Cheeta Slalom Frame Brand New
      720mm bars
      1st gen Canfield Crampon Pedals FTW


    Bike is very fun in the woods, only compromise would be lack of that "XC" leverage on the bars for getting up tough hills. Big plus is I can jump REALLY high with this frame thus riding the woods is more fun than the ol' F400 frame.

    A few minor changes that happened mid-season (Saint M810 SS derailleur, Saint BB, and ESI Chunky grips) and the last pictures for this year before I tear it all apart for maintenance and warranty on the Fox 34 (creaking CSU) and Reverb (drops in travel).

    No changes planned for next year other than tidying up the cables up front a bit, wouldn't change a thing really.

    All in all, it's been a great year of riding.
