    Check out my new Ted (Wojcik) drawing!!!

    I want to make sure that my drawing is correct according to most common things with 29ers. I just send him an e-mail as I want to do an 80mm Reba and I don't think that the current drawing agrees with that. Am I wrong and is there any other measurements I should worry about? Thanks for any help!

    Yep -

    The axle to crown there is 438mm. It needs to be about 470mm for the 80mm REBA.

    Also make sure to ask for a little extra HT extending downward from the HT/DT junction to clear the pop-loc on the REBA.

    I am anxious to see this bike! I bet it will be sweet.

    Make sure to keep us updated.

    will a 5" headtube length make for a pretty tall front end on the bike?

    Well, proper Polish pronunciation would be Voy-Chick.

    Yeah that could be it, I am not sure. All I know is that as long as you spell his name right on the deposit check, you can call him whatever you want

    I am 6'2 with shortish legs (33" inseam") therefore the seattube is a little shorter then i normally ride but he thinks with the 29er and for endurance racing, it will work out pretty well.

    I had to take a screenshot (ctrl+print screen) and then edit it with photoshop. If you want to e-mail me your pdf to xcbiker @ comcast.net then I will edit it for you and post it and send you a .jpg (picture image). I cannot access your file as is though.

    It will be shorter when adjusted for the longer fork.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    EDIT!: The BB is way too low for my taste (2.5" drop = ~11" BBH).

    oops - misfigured (no coffee!). 2.5" drop is a 12" BBH, which is OK. I still like higher.

    Are you running a rigid fork?

    I'd move the BB up a bit. By 1/4 to half inch at least.

    2.5" drop = 63mm? KM's have 68mm drop, so it's nothing out of the ordinary unless you're a shiggy type that rides 190mm cranks full-on through rockgardens :-)

    Top tube looks short, but that's personal preference I guess.

    So many helpful responses! Well I got an e-mail back from Ted this weekend and he hadn't had his coffee when he had started the CAD. He said he is going to start from scratch and get me something this week that should be a bit more 29er and a little less rigid 26er. I will post when the new drawing comes in! Thanks again for the input guys!

    Keith, did you check with Ted to see how he feels about posting his CAD drawing on the 'net? I think you should.

    I am sorry but I am taking down the drawing as its not my property to put there. I am sorry to anyone that I upset and didn't realize what I was doing. Thanks for the heads up Radair, I had no idea

    You might want to download the Reba spec here to check the fork clearance...
