    Kraftstoff H29

    Have someone test this frame?
    LINK

    I can have it for 200...

    The geometry isn't very helpfull so I'm askng to you if this frame is good or not for XC riding, not race purposes...

    And compared with the on-one inbred that comes to me for ~200?

    Thanks

    where can you buy this for 200? i may be interrested...

    eta:

    it looks like there is a mistake in the geo table, except for seat tube length everything is the same for all sizes on the H29.

    if that table is right, it means that the ETT is 23.8" on all the frames 18", 20", 22"

    if you need an 18" that sounds about right.... personally i need a 20" frame with around 24.5" ETT.

    also, for a large alu frame 1.98 kg is a bit on the heavy side, i already have a 2 kg dillinger but this one at least has an EBB.

    however, considering the weight difference between sizes, i think all the tubes are longer, not just the seat tube... they prolly just copy/pasted the data in a wrong way.


    regarding the OP's concerns, the angles seem about right for XC, this is not the usual european frankenhybrid frame.

    I've a friend of mine that is a reseller of kraftstoff and could sell me a frame for testing...

    The only strange thing is the BB drop... It's seems like the 26er frame....

    Nobody has this frame?

    2kg for an alu frame is a lot for me... On-one scandal comes in 1,4kg...

    scandal is around 1.65 actually. and if you don't like the track ends, the only solution is to grab a used one on ebay with vertical drops.

    I like the track ends.

    I only want to know if the H29 geo is right or not for a 29er frame.

    The On-One scandal cost to me: ~270 (?? scandium alu frame ~1500gr M)
    The Kraftstoff H29: 200 ( ?? alu frame ~2000gr M)
    The Gas29 Stambek: 300 (columbus Zona steel frame 1850gr M)

    So, I know happy people with the stambek frame, I know happy people with the Scandal frame, but I don't know people with the H29...

    Weight for the 18" is 1.84, and 1.98 is for the 20"

    Geo is in the ballpark, i don't see anything wrong with it on paper.

    Just get a 100mm reba and reduce the travel if the steering is too slow.

    I'm also searching for cheap euro frames, maybe a czech Superior would be as light as a Scandal if they sold frame-only.

    Tomorrow I will send an email to kraf asking for the BB drop...
    It's the only thing that isn't listed in the geo and the only that could be strange...

    If you are in Europe, I know that Gas29 made a lot of steel frame in Italy, and is specialized in 29er...
    If you want ask more about it, send me a mail or pm.
