    Looks weird. Short seat tube no braces. Custom frame?

    Maybe just a custom seat tube although the angle finder they've used shows the HA to be quite steep at 69 degrees so maybe it is custom.

    69 degrees certainly steeper than stock. Looks steep too. Be interesting to see what they think of it.

    Kind of... the geo is for a fork 535mm long IIRC, not the 520'ish of a Fox 32 series... that makes the angles steeper...

    Plus it looks like he's now broken the pivot bolt on the BB pivot.

    I think it will be interesting to see what Nicolai say about that:

    'OK so you've been running a 160mm fork and running this thing in the Alps on uplifts. And now you've broken the bike and want to claim on the warrantly? Hang on, give me a moment.....


    No.

    Understanding the terms of a warranty: FAIL

    just noticed he has broken the through bolt.I would have thought he should have had an AM for that type of riding.

    The bike does look very strange to me, and a right mis-match of parts
