    Nope. That's Manitou's reverse arch.

    That does look sweet. Wish they had the geo numbers posted on their site. I want to compare it to the Stumpy SS.

    Looks like fun for sure!

    I've posted these pictures on another thread, but just saw this one. So here it is. Let me know what you think.









    Just finished the build yesterday morning. Will post pics after the first real ride.

    Nice ride! The combination of the brown frame and pedals with the green rims and cable housing is a winner in my book. Also, I'm glad to see you're not afraid to combine riser bars with bar ends. Are you running a magic gear, by the way?

    The headset set up looks odd to me. It almost looks like there are two different headsets on there. Perhaps it is just the HS races that are bulging and look like a set of cups.

    I agree. It almost looks as though the headtube is flared at top and bottom for an inset headset?

    Yes it is the magic gear...until the chain stretches. After the first ride or two I normally need to use a tensioner from then on. It's not too loose really but I'd rather be safe than sorry when it comes to chain tension

    The headtube is flared out at the top and bottom, but only on the exterior of the frame. The interior bore is the same as other frames and still will only accept a standard 1-1/8" headset with cups.

    frame with integrated headset? just wondering how much material is pressed in using a standard one.
    everything sucks but my vacuum cleaner.

    ***NERD ALERT***

    Very cool bike but I couldn't help myself in letting you know that its not a Bantha skull its a Mythosaur skull, an animal only found on Mandalore. Mandalorians are not from Tatooine. Carry on, vode.
