    Did I understand your Instagram comments correctly that the new c456 Evo will have the same geometry as the current c456 and not the 456 Evo?

    Still don't understand the reasoning for only offering the 1 1/8" headtube on the new EVO II? On-One's response on FB: "But this is a frame for the thousands of people who have regular headsets and forks, and just want something simple at the right price." What about the other people who do own tapered forks? With a 44mm headtube, both parties can enjoy this awesome frame, with the old standard, not so much.

    There are about three 44mm headsets in the whole world, and nobody has any tools for facing or reaming. Only a handful of lunatics really care.

    Tapered steel head tubes weigh a metric tonne too.

    We're supporting tapered on our carbon models. If 44mm gets its act together we might go with it, but for now, I'm more than happy to get people rolling on this.

    Bear in mind, every day I answer at least three emails from people who think they can't run straight steerer forks in tapered steerer tube frames.

    I'm just wanting a plain and simple wonderful frame. I think we've delivered that.

    got a magic gear going with 36-22. Too tight with a brand new chain, but just right with a slightly worn one. ss suits this bikes personality.

    Hi guys, looking some sizing help for the evo2. I am 175cm and according to the website i'm bang on for a 16" frame set.
    My other bikes have all been medium. Med 2011 Reign, Med 05 Enduro etc. My wifes bike is a 09 Giant Alias !6" and it felt too small even with a few changes to seat tube and stem so I am reluctant to order a 16" even though that is what the website is telling me.
    Can anyone advise based on their own sizing experience. Brant maybe?

    Paul.

    16in
    no question.

    If the 14in is a small, then a 16in is a medium.

    Put a shorter stem (80mm) and wider bars (710) on my Evo this weekend (I'm 6'2") and just got back from a ride. Wow, what a difference! I always felt the 456 felt too small for me and I was never comfortable on it. With wider bars, the geometry is much different than the 29Inbred, but in a good way. Still climbed fine with a 130 fork up front, but it was a lot more stable and 'flickable'.

    I've been waiting for pics too! Something to keep me occupied until my frame comes in and I can build it up.

    That bike is the beezkneez alright! Great looking bike; does she ride as good as she looks?

    The postman was kind enough to deliver something rather lovely yesterday (seriously, does time pass more slowly than when you're waiting for a new bike!). Worth the wait however..... The frame looks good - looks like it's worth twice the price.

    456 evo-20130827_143708.jpg456 evo-20130827_143700.jpg

    Haven't had a proper ride on it yet - just a bash around the neighborhood so don't know how it'll feel on the trail yet. Does feel great doing a bit of street however.

    Build includes Marz 44 Rc3 Ti (no air on this baby), Reverb, Minion 2.5 Exo F, Ardent 2.25 Exo R (both setup tubeless), 1 x 10 Zee derailleur with Wold Tooth "Drop Stop" chainring and BBG Bashy.
    Total build is 13kg's on the dot.

    As soon as I am over this damn flu I'm gonna give her a thrashin'

    I really want one right now- I think the UK site had free shipping when I last checked- but I want to run 650b/265x2.5 tires, and it sounds sketchy on the Evo II. So waiting for the 650b....

    I am a couple of days from ordering a frame for a new build, my first in 7 years, and I am looking very hard at an evo2 20". However, being a tall guy all this talk of contemporary wheelsizes has me intrigued. I have short legs but I stand 6'2 and was settled on the 456 evo2 just a couple of days ago (I even ordered a new 26er wheelset) before reading about the fireline 29er in aluminum that should be ready to go in October/November.

    Can anyone give me any guidance on what to do? I always felt that 29ers felt a little strange (sluggish steering) but I've never had a "proper" long ride on one. The 29ers that I've tried have also all been XC race machines and I am interested in something a bit more "all mountain".

    Any advice on whether to go for the EVO2 or wait for the fireline 29er would be greatly appreciated. (Also don't bother with 650b, the first time expenses of forks and wheels is too high with the new standard).

    Also 6'2 and 33-34 inseam should fit a 20" frame right?

    It's a Sektor TK Coil U-turn 100-140mm.
    The bike rides really nice with 120 or 140mm setting.

    On the picture it should most likely be set to 120mm.

    The Frame uses a classic 1 1/8 straight steerer tube, so you can only run straight forks

    456 evo-10162435023_7366720f53_c.jpgMy 456 - a set on Flickr

    Here's the latest iteration of my EVO original. Having a blast on this bike, but I do wish it was a touch less slack on really steep climbs. Maybe it's the bar length, or the short stem, but whatever it is I find on tight steep switchbacks I kinda get hungup in the bars. That said, it's a blast going down...

    How is everyone getting along with the short seat tubes on these frames? I'm close to pulling the trigger but the 16" seat tube is holding me back. i am 5'8 with a 31.5 inseam, barefoot.

    I have an ASR5 which has an ETT of 23.7, using a 60mm stem. The seat tube is 18.8" and I have about 8.25 inches of seat post exposed. On my Med El Guapo v2 I have 9 inches of exposed seat post.

    I have dropper posts on both bikes and I don't see how I could get away with a 16" seat tube and have enough post left for minimum insertion, or the seat post would be really extended. I do understand that there is very little time spent sitting and spinning on a HT and that I'd be running it lower in most cases but I'd still like to be able get full extension for commuting, etc.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Nice build. I see you're starting to get some "patina" on that frame. It'll be interesting to see how uniform the oxidation gets over time. Might have a rat rod bike on your hands shortly

    Yeah, "patina" city. Unfortunately it's not uniform, but instead spots where the original coating has been nicked. I actually love the idea of the whole frame rusting and then getting a clear coat put on it.

    Sounds like you need to try and find some 29ers to demo. Although the Geo may be off a bit, it should still give you an idea of the wheel size.

    29ers can be fun, but don't agonize about buying the wheelsize that was in for over 20 years. It still works. That said, I've had both, and the big wheels do feel nice cruising over stuff, but unless you have a really nice light 29er wheelset they'll feel noticeably less peppy than the equivalent 26er setup. I had some crappy wheels & tires initially on my 29er, then moved up to stans arches and went tubeless and the difference was incredible. Moral of the story, don't bother with 29ers if you're gonna by cheap.

    Obviously a very different ride without 5" of travel up front, but gotta say it's been fun. 456 evo-unnamed.jpg
