    Good looking frame, but how did you get that tree through the headtube?

    Must be a "new" standard, bigger than the 1.5" oversized!

    Allows for continuously variable head tube length and geometry. Add some water and Miracle Grow - slacker angle, higher head tube. Need quicker steering? Take out the chainsaw.

    Beautiful in its simplicity and fine-tunability
    Wanted: more of the same ... but different

    Ha!
    Thanks.
    Spam wouldn't do me much good at this point, I'm closing my build queue until i can catch up on existing orders.
    More pics as requested.
    It's kind of naked, it still needs the headbadge and tensioners on the Paul dropouts.
    Kudos to Spectrum Powder for the awesome finish & for making me look good.
    Highlights: double butted 8/5/8 toptube, ovalised at the seat tube, DT is ovalised at the BB & HT
    All True Temper except for the Deda CS's.
    Paragon HT & BB
    Rock On & thanks allot - this is my favourite forum here.
    Over & Out

    Just saw Vader today, I'm sure he's around. The way he was talking about it at Keyesville he seemed pretty stoked on the new frame.
    Need: McMahon brake for roller cam mounts, Mountain Goat fork.

    Vader is one lucky dude. That frame looks *****in', Steve. What color is it? I hope you reopen your build queue when I have enough money saved for one of your frames.

    Vader dude;
    I saw your new bike before you did!
    Seek: Koski Trailmaster. Breezer Series 2, or 3. Fillet brazed Ibis Custom. Cunningham Racer. Otis Guy (but not that softride model). That's all I need I don't need anything else... except... except for an old Mountain Goat bar stem combo. And that's all I need. I don't need anything else. Except.....

    Exactly - thay what made me think my e-mails were not getting through "failure notice" and all that.
    Thanks everyone.
    Left him a message on the # I have yesterday.
    Sure he's just busy, just trying to do everything I can on my end.

    Not sure, Spectrum painted it - that's between the client & them.
    I'm not going anywhere, just not taking orders until Jan. 2014 I think.
    I just need to get a bunch done before I put more on my plate.

    Haha thank you, girlonbike :-) I'm a reporter, and much of my meager paycheck goes towards travel and adventure. No complaints. I should have some cash set aside whenever Steve reopens the queue.

    Straight toptube, 1* steeper ST*, stiffer, larger DT.

    One is green, the other is silver. The green bike is very springy and more of an all day bike, like for the Umpqua River Trail. I also quickly noticed that in a race, the curved top tube required an extra hop to dismount when behind geared riders tip toeing up crux moves that I needed to power over with the SS. The green frame is the nicest bike I've swung a leg over and is very intuitive. I can't wait to see what the silver frame is all about.
