    My 6.5lb steel trail frame

    This is my first single pivot frame, so far working out sweet.
    Was thinking steel single pivot like this would be kinda flexi in the rear but it's solid as.
    even been down some DH trails and handled them with ease well for a trail bike.
    Frame weight without shock is 6.5lbs

    Very cool! Got any pics of the pivot point? Was also wondering what you used for bearings on the main pivot point. Enduro bearings? Nice job!

    Glad to hear you guys likey(:

    It's tig welded, I dont have any build pics sorry.
    The main pivot is two 32mmx12mm brearings
    I got the idea for the main frame from my DH bikes.

    Hey Dirtdigler

    What Dia tube do you use for the twin section of the Seat-tube to BB area?

    Very nice set-ups, I like the Cross-tube style that you are using.

    Eric
    If I don't make an attempt, how will I know if it will work?
