    Gotta say, that raw finish looks pretty good. Nice touch there Brant!
    If I were faster, I would win

    What are those handlebars? I love me some orange bars when they match. Reminds me of creamsicles and early 70's Camaros.

    I love my Inbred, and decided to sell as much shite at at a swap meet this weekend to buy and build up an Evo. Thanks for the pics, guys.

    Ok so I just ordered one of the 16" 456 evo frames in the raw finish! I also ordered a headset, seatpost clamp and headset spacers while I was at it! I'm so excited! Does anyone know how long the shipping will take to get to the United States, specifically Pennsylvania?

    Thanks in advance!

    VERY sick! Please lend me some luck and good thoughts on this weekend's bicycle swap meet. It's the only way I'll be able to leverage a new Evo frame without the wife killing me.

    You know, a lot of people are so into the latest and greatest carbon this and that. All my bikes but 1, are steel. On-One happens to make an incredible steel frame for a kick ass price.

    Brant... My Inbred is an 18" and I like the feel of it, even though I'm 5'9" - 5'10".

    Would an 18" 456 be too big? I like to ride my bikes slightly xc'ish.

    Then keep your inbred.

    (ps: I have drunk quite a lot tonight).

    (pps: I am 6'1" and I ride an 18in. Should you ride same size as me?)

    Keeping the Inbred. I want an evo; I want to support your brand.

    Thanks for the advice.

    Having just "removed" the Swapouts from the rest of the steel range, I've no plans to add them back in to the Evo.

    That said, a higher spec Evo with, maybe, True Temper OX Platinum tubing and a 44mm headtube, say... that could get Swapouts, but its pricetag would probably be higher than our Carbon 456, so what's the point?

    Some of us just love quality geometry, steel frames, and single speed compatibility without having to use ugly chain tensioners.

    My mouth is watering over that RAW frame. similar geo to the summer season and ragleys? I can't help but think climbing would be tough with 65.7* unsagged HTA, but plenty have said in other threads that climbing is good. Interested in hearing ride reports... don't know if I can even resist that raw frame tho

    Headset spacers? No freakin' way! That's awesome!
    Hehehe, just busting your chops

    Between me and a friend, we've had three separate orders shipped to the DC area. The quickest was 7 days; the longest was 13 days.

    Thanks for the shipping times! Oh did I mention they are lightweight headset spacers! lol
