    Any Cove Handjob Owners out there??

    I'm considering a Cove Handjob as a hardtail trailbike frame and I'm looking for reviews, photos, build lists etc. etc.

    I've already looked through Craig H's Cove Thread but primarily that features Hummers and Stiffees.

    So here's a chance for all you Handjob lovers out there to post information and photos about your frames/bikes.

    Thanks!

    yeah, I posted in that thread asking about sizing...(what is the standover clearence on and 19" handjob) I'm thinking of picking one up myself to "upgrade" my hardtail. I of course got no reply.

    any aditition info from the handjob owners would be great.

    I've got a 19"

    I just got in a 19" 2003 Handjob that I bought on EBay. It measures 19" from center of bb shell to top of seat tube. With a Noleen Mega Air Fork set at 100 mm travel (18.5" long) and Michelin Jet 2.1 tires, standover is 29" at the seat tube and 33.5" at the head tube.

    I don't know

    I haven't assembled it yet. I frame-savered it yesterday. The top tube measures out at about 23.5" or a bit less (parallel to the ground). That's not real long by my standards. But I have a 2003. Maybe the 2004 geometry is different.

    The "Cove Bikes" thread by Craig H. has geometry tables way at the bottom.
