    Mo' Money

    Well here you go, excuse the components, but they are what I have laying around. Anyway, you can see the potential.
    The rear tire clearance is incredible, easily will hold a 26 x 2.3. The panaracers are 2.1. The last pic show's how straight my jig is, sweet !!
    Now I'm going to get out my OEM phone number list and go shopping.......... I am going to bling it like Snoop Dogg's pimp cup !!
    I will post pics as it gets built.

    RTW.

    yeah, you're right, even with those example components, you can see the potential for sure! it's ALL about that stance! Rollin' Low, That is the Tem-po!
    SMOOOTH work Rick!
    that straight on rear shot is nice, nice and straight that is! I'm just curious, have you attempted to line up a disc brake caliper on the rear yet? I wonder how it will line up all the way forward in the drops?

    The '' triangle '', or axle hole to the caliper mounting holes is set for full forward caliper mounting on this frame. I laid it '' down '' some so when you remove the rear tire in the horizontal drop outs, you don't have to loosen one and remove one of the caliper mounting screws to slide the disc out like on the Azonic DS-1, I used to have one, it was a pain in the a$$. They only made it one year like that, and switched to verticle d/o's.
    As long as you keep the '' triangle '' relationship ( hole pattern ) the same, you can rotate it anywhere around the axle and get disc. Does that make sense ? I actually made a slotted caliper mount for my DS-1, so I did'nt have to remove the one screw after losing it changing a flat once 4 miles from my truck. I got really good using the front disc that day.
    And I am happy you like the 10-74, your steel bike was a real inspiration.
    Also, that is a 7'' rotor in the pic, and with the Cru's, it would hold a 8''.
    I'm going to use a 6'' on the build.

    Very nice. Looks a lot like a trials bike with that long stem.

    With that much stand over, it probably bunny hops... well like a bunny. All that space to tuck it in and bring it those few extra inches higher...

    That is the frame I want. I feel bad for brad. I was all "I wanna build a trialsy DJ bike" but rick built it first. Of course, my color preferences are probably boring compared to what it's gonna turn out like ( gloss black frame, stem, cranks, cogs, black grips, tires w/ white fork, rims, pedals, bar, seat, with silvery highlights of the brakes )

    Better patent the frame rick, before some other company steals the geo . . .

    Is it made specifically for an 80 mm fork? That's what it looks like.
    I'm out of things to say . . .

    You should start building more of those.
    And then sell it to me for cheap.

    Rick, it looks rad!!! Hey, let us know the frame weight before you hook it up for good. It's gotta be light as hell...

    It looks so much like a trials bike it isn't funny. What is it's main purpose?

    It was designed as a DJ/Urban/Park bike. But, I'd say, since it's aluminum, it will be most at home on the dirt... or in the air between some dirt!!! Yeah, it might look a little like a trials, but I think it's more that some trials frames look like the perfect DJ frame. Remember, that low top tube serves a purpose!!! Turndowns, lookbacks, can-cans galore!!!

    I think the uber long stem makes it look trialsy. put a 40 on there and it would probably look more DJ'ish.
