    Looks very clean. Best I can tell those are the carbon Fatback rims, makes the Dillinger look big. Okay, is it just the angle of the photo or is it the rim spreading out the tire or is it the Big Dillinger?

    I've got ~350 miles on my Corvus right now and I'm loving it. I've never had a complaint about riding and racing on my Ti Fatbacks. But I think the Corvus checks a couple more boxes. Lighter and stiffer, but not *too* stiff. It carries a load really well, has more main triangle space to keep more of the load centered and the CG where you want it. Riding some pretty fast twisty downhills (and correspondingly slow uphills) with the total bike and load weight over 50 lbs and it felt stable and predictable as could be.

    Can't wait to get this thing unloaded, throw some carbon rims and clipless pedals on it and ride the dog $hit outta it...afraid it might be a while though.

    Wow. Pretty sure that's the first actual picture I've seen of that frame. That thing is a work of art. Congrats.

    Photos don't do them enough justice; they are a beautiful bike. I own one of the "other" carbon frames, and the finish level on the Corvus is definitely taken to a higher level.

    Fatback Corvus

    Will the Corvus frame accept a Bluto fork?

    You could install one, but it would mess up the geometry. The Corvus was designed for conditions that will kill a Bluto according to Fatback. I'm not sure if they mean the insidey parts siezing or the magnesium dissolving because it got wet.
