    Form Cycles

    I've been in discussion with Daryl at Form and I'll tell you that these guys know how to build frames. I'm in for a 29er Prevail Lefty headtube singlespeed/geared(sliders) double butted permanent decal frame. Excited is a understatement. 3-4 weeks and it will be in my garage.

    Jack,
    You're gonna love it. Daryl's great to work with. The only way to sweeten the deal is to pick it up in Sedona and test it out on the trails there.

    Post some pics when you get it. Am eager to see the result as your previous bikes have been similarly proper.

    Richard

    UPS should be dropping it off today. Can't wait to see it live and in person. Yep they've been top notch in their communications and lead times.

    Unwrapped the frame last night and at first glance the workmanship is top quality. Moots like welds, perfect finish and the attention to detail is top notch. I'll post some pics this weekend.

    What are they charging for a frame? Is yours custom or did you go with their stock geom?

    Thanks.

    21.75 pounds as is. I have new rotors that will shave another 5 ozs off this weekend. I'm having a new wheelset built which should come in under 1400 grams along with going tubeless should bring it close to 20 pounds. It's the best climbing bike I've owned to date.

    Stock medium geometery except Lefty head tube and sliders in the rear. Everthing else standard geometery.

    Any Pics? I have ridden one of their cross bikes and talk about a fun bike. Never jumped curbs so high in the drops before.

    sorry no pics as the R-sys I was using were crap and the bike is without wheels. I'm going to put new wheels on this fall, but the build is SRAM RED with Edge bar, stem, post; TRP euro carbon brakes. I think it was 16lbs when it was built.
