    Goblin Geometry?

    Anybody have the geometry numbers for the Goblin frame, specifically in 16"?

    The new website is borked and doesn't have any numbers for the 16".
    Can't seem to pull up the geometry through archive.org on the old site.
    My email to Airborne has gone unanswered.

    So, maybe somebody here has it saved off? I'd really love to get the "nitty-gritty" numbers like BB drop, CS length, Stack and Reach, but even just TT length would be an improvement over what I've got now...

    You are right, I can't see them either, let me see what I can find.

    EDIT - The Guardian is the same frame (different color), and I found that spec sheet. You can get it HERE.

    I still don't see the 16" details in there.

    All I get from that chart is that the 16" might have the same wheelbase as the 18", and is a mystery otherwise.

    Simply put, geometry charts with mostly missing numbers, doubled numbers, etc. don't inspire confidence.

    Even though I don't work there anymore.............

    See if this helps:

    Airborne Bicycles. Goblin

    Click on the geometry tab.


    If you've never used the "wayback machine" website before, bookmark it. It's a great tool to have when you need to access info and sites are down permanently or temporarily.

    Jeremy, thanks for making me take a look again - when I pulled it up through the wayback machine before, the "geometry" tab never showed up, but this time it did!

    Any chance of getting stack and reach numbers?

    Sorry, I don't have those numbers. Hopefully someone gets back to you and can supply.

    Take care,

    Jeremy
