    I was wanting to build one up and contacted on one a they encouraged me to go 29r.Said the whippit was not designed for 650b.Thought about hard eddie 650b ss but serious $.Love the way your bike looks.How about the ride?

    Looks great! What kind of tire clearance do you have in the back?

    I'll probably climb better when you shave those 2-3 oz. ****Insert large amounts of sarcasm****

    A 15 lb bike is incredible! My FS weighs 30.5 lbs.

    Great job and nice looking bike.

    I took it out today for its first ride. Love the bike, the mid size wheel has its place. It won't be replacing my 29ers but it will be my go to bike for a few trails here in Houston.

    Ill mesure the bb height but it seems to be the same as my rigid Lurcher.

    There is plenty of room. 2.3 tires should fit even on the wide American Classic rims.

    The BB Height is 12 inches to the bottom of the BB shell and 12.75 inches to the center of the BB.

    This is with a 445 a/c fork with 2.1 Rocket Rons on american classic race wheels.

    My lurcher is 12 inches to the center off the BB with a 470mm a/c rigid fork, Chris King inset 3 and Renagade 1.95s on Easton 90s

    My On One Scandal is 12.9 inches to the center of the BB with a WB Loop 80mm tapered fork(not sagged), On One Smoothie mixer headset and Fast Track 2.2s onSun/Ringle BF Pros.

    Ummmm.... I guess you really don't know how to fit a bike. I'm 5'11 with a long inseam and short torso. The Whippet is a medium frame with a 605 mm effective top tube. why doesn't it fit?

    Maybe you should quit making uninformed comments and learn how to fit a bike.

    Curious as to why you went with a 2.1 in front? Wouldn't you want to have a larger tire for some compliance?

    I ride a 2.35 Nobby Nic in front with a Carbon fork. I dunno, maybe you are a tougher man than me.

    "well as a matter of fact i have a certificate from specialized BG fit school i could teach you about fit as well as bikes with gears , peace out g man"

    In that case you'd know that you can't fit a frame without the person there and a large portion of the fit is comfort and body type. So for Boom here it's probably spot on.

    And Boom. Sexy bike.

    Clearly you need to go back to school. I am 5'6", ride a medium 29er frame and the post sticks out plenty. WTF does that have to do with fit?

    Mr. poopy-butt

    I think somebody is grumpy Some folks like a short frame for stand over, some for looks, some because the manufacturer sizes on odd or even numbers that can leave a gap and that's the best fit.

    I take a 21 or 20 inch depending on the manufacturer. My 3 21" frames have less post showing than my 2 20" frames, of course...but guess what? I buy 400mm posts and ALL of them are WELL within the min insertion spec by inches...like I can pull 'em out another 2-3 inches easy and still have post (the little mark on the post I'm sure they covered at Specialized BG Fit School). I can't see where his seat is over extended since for all I know he has a 450mm post and can't see the MIN INSERTION mark.

    For the record, all of mine have EXACTLY the same seat to floor, seat to BB center, and seat to pedal measurements but different post lengths hanging out and all well within spec.

    Perhaps you just don't like the fact that it's not your bike!?! Let's see...join date 2004, 39 posts, 1 chicklet...keep up the good work!
