    456 Evo Geometry
    Proportional chainstay length keeps rear wheel pinned on the climbs, whilst not forcing riders forward on steep seat angles.
    A change of 1mm at the dropout is the same as moving the rider forward 4mm at the saddle. But without making you sit 4mm further forward!

    Anyone know if they upgraded the seatpost to a more contemporary diameter. And when will we see these things?

    bummer. That was the deciding factor between the 456 and a blue pig (which CRC is painfully slow in getting)

    what would be recommended frame size for a person with:
    slightly above 6"; inside leg 34 1/4"; apelike long arms.

    Fork will be a 120 mm for the time being. Intended usage are trails and relaxed all mountain tours; no freeride, jumping, etc.

    Looks a bit I'm somehow between 18 and 20". Regarding the frame length I'd prefer the 20" size, but I'm wondering if the stand-over height might then be a bit too much for my size.

    If you want to ride with saddle at xc height then you probably need to go to 20in. The seat tube is 18in or 20in centre to top (top of seat tube, not top tube) so easy to check on your current bike.

    That package now discontinued as we cleared the pedals out yesterday. But we will revise it down without them.

    another question mate,on the spec for the frame it say's the headset is 1.125 ec34,but the bundle say's the headset is a 1.1/8? i haven't been riding much in the past 10yrs so all the headset stuff is a bit confusing,or am i just stoopid?
    p.s while i'm here might as well confirm BB is 73mm right?
    p.p.s would a marzocchi 66VF2 be o.k with said frame?
    cheers

    EC34 = 1.125in standard.
    73mm BB
    ISCG05
    66VF2? She's long. 170mm? We only test up to 160mm, but I'm sure it's fine.

    the raw one in the first post looks like a 20"

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

    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.
