    Handjobs somehow manage to look great even in large frame sizes!

    here is the newest addition to my cove family.
    A Quickee




    I have been after one of these for a while and as there were very few made i had to pick it up second hand(the frame that is). just got it built up last night(hence the sorry state, still fitting it as of right now). this is my first endeavour in to road bikes, so far so good.

    big thanks to all the guys at the Cove as they helped with tons of info and finally shipping the frame to me after the previous owner dropped it off to them.

    [QUOTE=ianpinder;3554143]Yeah my handjob is a 2007 19.5 inch, it might be a tad large for you as that is what i ride and i am 6ft 4, my cove gspot is a 17.5 inch, but is a tad small so will be replacing it with a 19 inch std.

    A question to Handjob owners who converted their rigs to singlespeed without a chain tensioner. Which method of eccentricity-based chain tensioning did you use and what ring and cog sizes do you run?

    I am not sure, but it seems to me that using 32/16 could be the not-so-secret combination that allows you to neglect tensioner or eccBB.

    Yes, I knew about 32/16. But I've been thinking about 36/18 (have a nice 36T chainring), and that seems to be doable with a half-link chain or a single 3/32" half-link added to 3/32" singlespeed chain.

    What was the first year for the hummer?

    Does anyone know what the first year of the Hummer was? Why I ask is because of it's link to Hillside bike's Hummer and also Mountain and Beach back in the day sold a Ti frame called the Hummer back in 92. Can anyone shed any light? thanks

    +1 I always get quick replies with accurate info and help via email and if you need a answer urgently just put a call into the shop. Super support and service.

    Still enjoying the old G-Spot! with a Push'd Van RC (TF Tuned) no bob climbing and great control through the travel. Best money I ever spent on a bike.

    you love bike shorts? i think you mean "bikes short".
    either way, a large is going to be the best fit in my opinion. im 5'10 and ride a meduim g-spot and find it a touch small.

    cove bikes have really short top tubes, so you should be happy

    Finally got it weighed. Came in at 36.35 lbs. Last night I added the KS LEV 150 MM so I am sure it is over 37 now.

    Got a chance to buy an '03 G-Spot. Has Sram x-9 rear and x-7 front, Race Face cranks, Fox RL rear shock and a Manitou Sherman front. Bike looks and seems to be in excellent shape, and has been recently fully overhauled and tuned.

    I realize this bike is 10 yrs old, but doe this seem like a good deal for $650?

    Thanks for any insight you may have!

    RoddyMcWolfenstein,
    sounds like a good deal. With a modern shock, some new rubber and some HTA slackening (the challenging part where eccentric shock mounts and a Saar-like headset may be involved) you'll be set.

    The frame looks like this I guess?

    Well, I pulled the trigger and bought it. The seller was Anex Bicycles in Salt Lake City. Tyler (the owner) was super easy to deal with and eager to please. Deal was done within 24 hours and the bike was picked up by FedEx and on its way to me today. This is my first FS bike so I can't wait to get it out! Here's a pic from this AM before he packed it up.

    It's three years since I last posted a picture of my bike in this thread and a lot of parts have been switched out to save weight.

    Weighs 31lb 10oz in this picture and rides better than ever!

    While browsing the web I found these pictures of a roadbike called Cove Quickee. I tried but could not find any other pics regarding of this model. Is it fake or is it a prototype of a frame which never got into production at Cove Bikes?

    they do exist.
    its mine, there is a small write up on the previous page.
    there were roughly 50 built(according to an old cove staff member) in 2002.
    it was made in Vancouver, but most went to Europe for some reason. as far as i can find i have the only one on the internet.

    here is the 2002 brochure scan


    here is the bike now

    Tyler at Anex sold me an El Cuervo with a cracked frame I discovered the crack when I cleaned the bike hours after I bought it. He will not return calls or messages.

    Hi guys some nice bikes in here. I'm rebuilding a 2009 Hustler and having some issues with the main pivot. Do the two bearings on each side need to be pressed into the frame a bit rather than flush, so they hold the middle piece in place? Also mine had two thin plastic/rubber washers either side between the main pivot and the chainstay clamps, where can I get some more of these? Thanks. Will post some pics when the frame is finished.

    Cove Bikes Thread

    So since the snag with the steerer tube on my Pike being too short and the 29" wheels making the bike the size of a farm gate, I decided to box the Hummer up until it was time to do a 27.5 build, which happened last week!

    I decided to run a 140mm Revelation which the bike seemed to be made with in mind, a set of Hope Tech Enduro 27.5 wheels and a XT/XTR/OneUp Components 1x10 setup. I've got it down to under 26.5lbs (it had mud on it when I weighed it at 26.5!) with pedals and I'm considering running some Hope Tech XC wheels rather than the Enduro ones which should lop at least another half pound of it so I can definitely live with that considering that's with a Reverb and heavy Brooks saddle too.

    Finished the build on Friday and took it out yesterday for its maiden voyage. This things rips! I didn't think it would be such a charger but it feels as capable as my old Yeti SB95c only more spritely and much more eager to turn. I think this bike has made me a mid-wheel size convert!! Ha ha!

    Updated specs, swapped the wheels for some Hope Tech XC's, cut the steerer down and tidied up some things. Sitting at 25.6lbs with that 0.6 being mostly in the saddle.
