    OK, it is a great bike and such but do we really need 3-4 threads on it?

    Recalling the pinkbike review, it blew my mind that the designer was selling frames without having a jig for the rear triangle... or even the measuring equipment to verify that the parts were coming out to spec. That's really basic frame building stuff, and sending a wacky frame off for a pinkbike review speaks of a designer who doesn't know he isn't ready to be producing frames. At some point in the future things might change, but i can't trust his tubing/design choices if he doesn't have the basics down pat.

    The can opener head tube gussets are also concerning.
