    Looks super slack - what's the HT and ST angles? Especially with the mega-set back seatpost?

    Those are good - looks are deceiving I guess. Camera angle maybe?

    I love the frame geometry and even though I am not a fan of suspension fork, it's fit perfectly with the fork.

    BTW what frame is this? I can't read the brand.

    Bike is looking nice!!

    I'm eyeballing one of these, but have some concerns over slippage of the adjustable dropout. Am I just being paranoid? Im not a lightweight rider.

    I haven't been able to find much info about the dropouts on the web. Any pics or info you have on them would be much appreciated.
