    thanks, well, i'm a bit stuck.
    yeah it's a medium early V3.

    what's correct chainstay length please?
    distance from bb to main pivot?

    other possibilities.. headtube in totally wrong place, or pivots on seattube in wrong place?
    was hoping maybe it was just rear triangle wrong!


    "seatstay pivot to seatstay pivot dimension should be 408mm (+/-0.5mm) "

    don't understand this sorry. good to see your tolerances are actually quite good (imho).

    527mm claimed by RS, 530mm actual on mine.

    i'm not asking for a diff bike, not even sure i want to change mine - be good for on-one to know what went wrong.
    it's a very nice/interesting ride actually. very stable! possibly too slack, which i noticed after being away for a bit. i'll check the HA later (only got a phone for this, not really accurate).

    a 15mm drop with a revelation sounds wrong as well, doesn't it? shouldn't it be ~4mm as Brant said before, any frame size?

    Try upper mounting hole for rocker. It steepens your HA by ~1 deg and slightly raises your BBH by few mm. Haven't noticed difference in ride quality or sag with same psi in the Monarch shock.

    My med EG V.3 has ~-18mm bb drop with 540mm fork with 15mm lower headset cup so it seems like mine is even worst than yours with 10mm taller fork.

    Smiff, I miss read your figure. You actually have 22mm bb drop vs. my 18mm . Which makes sense since you are running 10 mm shorter fork.

    Btw I gave up on Vengeance HLR air fork. It would have been perfect fork for my EG since it has taller A/C height than other brands 160mm forks but it made an annoying clicking/tapping noise every time it compresses so went back to trusty Z1 Light Bomber.

    yeah STH you and i most likely have same frame.
    i also suppose lots of others do too, as this isn't just bad alignment, the frames are straight and well made, and they passed QC...
    can you work out which bit is "wrong"? if we had a new one side by side it'd be easy..

    i will try the other hole, just for curiosity..
    without riding another i'm really not sure what to ask on-one. i guess ideal would be if they'd send me a replacement and i could try it and compare before returning one of them! not sure any company would do that. but they have my details it's obvious i'm not running off.

    what would they do with used frames?
    is there demand out there for a super low bb 26" EG?

    I'm curious... What's the rear travel on these out of spec frames? Anyone measured that?

    What is peculiar is while BBH or BB drop being way off, all other numbers seem spot on so far...including HA.

    It would be nice to see a post from EG V3 owners with taller BBH...picture of BB drop and actual number...just for comparison sake. Seeing BB drop picture from craigstr was eye opening since he is running similar length fork/headset combo as mine even though EG V3 from V2 bottom bracket height change is only suppose to be few millimeters lower per Titus.

    As I stated long posts ago this super duper low bottom bracket height EG is perfect if you want to run 650B wheel in the front.

    On One fix

    maybe that's what they could do. send you a 27.5 rim & spokes of your choice, to buildup w/ your hub?

    Come think of it Titus could prolly start pumping out 650B frame by just engineering rear triangle while using the same front triangle from EG V3.

    Wait a minute....just saw a possibility here.

    If that ever happened, I could just buy 650B rear triangle from Titus and slap it on my EG V3 front triangle and, viola, I have 650B frame with 3/4" taller BBH!

    Looks like I'll have to go and buy some string.

    Have a medium V3 with a RS Lyrik Coil u-turn on Maxxis High Rollers.

    steady on. not everyone wants a 29er.. new fork, new wheels, tyres etc. and if you were happy with your ride, this (finding out it's not what you thought) doesn't actually make it worse.
    new buyers need to know what's up though.
    I really hope they don't kill the 26" EG because of this, that'd be a real shame. i'd be happy with v2 geo i think..

    someone with a very new medium v3 please do the string thing

    I already reserved a place in that line!

    And at the same time convert the rear to 142x12. Or leave it 135 I don't care.

    To be honest I rode this morning and upped my rear shock pressure to run 15-20% sag and didn't have an yissues. I like the traction with 30% sag but really the lack of pedal strikes was alot better. I'm really thinking about picking up a fox float 160 now. I'd like to drop some weight and this totem is like a steal I beam on the front of my bike.

    So I checked how long my fork would have to be for the string to go straight through the bb and came up with 200mm. Either I am doing something completely wrong or my frame is off spec.

    I am not too eager to change my frame either. But if the bb drop can be corrected by changing parts like rear triangle, rocker, front wheel/fork or something I would. I love to do of technical climbing and pedal strike is a problem there.

    Anatolb....you said in an earlier post that your bb height was 13.2"? That actually strikes me as a bit high with a Rev 150. My V2 with a Float 36 is 13.5" in the forward shock hole. Can you double check the bb height? If its 13.2", that is money right there, I dont think you have a problem.

    It really doesn't matter at all.

    It's clearly a manufacturing issue and if On One resolves the issue to your satisfaction, there is no point on finding out what went wrong.

    If it was a structural defect (cracks, broken parts) then yes, an explanation on what the defect is would be important.
