    Why'd they have to go and use an asymmetrical 170mm rear triangle? What's the offset?

    HolyHell....this and a new Carver released back to back! Excellent way start to November. Personally i'm leaning towards carbon as long as the price is in the sensible range.
    But regardless i'll be following these two frames and discussions w serious focus. my necro pugs is only 2 months old but i'll be selling it in spring for full custom spec machine of some type. Really nice to start seeing options appearing from the community.

    Indeed, seems strange. A typo, perhaps?

    Maybe it has even more clearance then the Moonlander? I could see the need to not want to get mud/rocks caught up in the rear triangle and tear up the carbon.

    We don't know how much of an offset there is yet, but they made it asymmetrical, so you can run clown shoes with bfl's or abbott &costello and still run it 2 x 9 with no chain rub. We'll know more when we ride one next week.

    carry on...

    We need to bombard the chinese carbon frame makers with requests for a fat carbon frame.
    Anyone found the price of this yet ? With the first line reading "Custom ENVE carbon tubeset" the price might read like a telephone number.

    Very very nice

    No one noticed the crankset?

    BTW, I think the Chinese need something to copy before they can come out with their own frame. God knows I need a Chinese knockoff carbon bike frame so bad. I don't know how people have managed to ride steel/titanium/alloy that was not copied and made cheaper illegally.
    I proudly ride for these guys.

    At the IM Expo you can shake hands with Aaron from 616 Fab and shoot the bull with Scott from Quiring Cycles, both who will hand build you an awesome custom fatty. That's were the real magic is.

    Live from the Iceman!

    They said the crank spindle was welded. I hope they have better luck than I did, it was pretty hard on the Frank n Beans when it broke.

    We have a local trail just outside of Denver called the "Hogback". I'm guessing it was their inspiration. It's a pretty technical trail and wouldn't be my first pick to snow bike but a popular trail none the less.

    Willum Asym 170? I don't get it




    Makes pretty good sense I think. In a way it's the best of both worlds and the worst of both worlds. Best of both worlds because you get more clearance and don't end up with a dramatic offset on the frame also, you don't have to get a new hub size made. Worst of both worlds because you’re limited to a few hubs and still have an offset to deal with. I bet the offset is about 9-10 mm.
    Big offset like a Moonlander isn't bad, but it creates some limitations when you want to run 29 rims or narrower fat rims that don't have enough width for adequate spoke offset.

    The Bud / Lou combo on 100 mm rims are the max tire sizes available right now and to have proper chain to tire clearance and have a full cassette in the back you want a frame spaced wider than 170. Upper 180s or 190s ish. This 170 plus asymmetrical is just another way of accomplishing that.

    I contacted scott via email wondering if he was the guy to build a full squish fattie, answer no time right now = fail.

    Hardly a fail when he's full up for the next 3-4 months building custom artwork that happens to have wheels as well.
