    Custom Wiseman SS Fatty

    I just received my Custom Wiseman frame and built it up last night. This frame currently has 26x3.8 in it, but can be ran as a 29er, 27.5 or a 29+ or a 27.5+ when then are actually available.

    Dave Wiseman, the man behind the build worked with very tight tolerances to make this build happen. This is a 73mm bottom bracket shell with a symmetrical 135mm rear end. The cranks clear with plenty to spare as does the chainring thanks to some fantastic fabrication. I have the wheel slammed forward and the chainstay is just over 17".

    Dave was an absolute pleasure to work with. Hands down this has been the most enjoyable custom frame experience I have ever had, and I have had a lot. Communication was top notch, as is build quality.

    The paint job really can't be captured with a picture, when the sunlight hits it, it explodes.

    The pictures don't even come close to doing the paint job justice. The paint is so rich and deep. The complete paint job took 7 coats, It sparkles like crazy when the sun hits it.

    Why thank you. I am currently building a set of 27.5+ wheels to ride as well. I think they will fit almost exactly the same as the 26x3.8.
