    I love bikes with tonnes of standover - sweet ride. How much does a waltworks cost? Also what type of steel is that?

    Beautiful bike. What's the chainring your running in combination with the hub? I'm about 1 month into my rohloff equipped bike (by black sheep, can see it here: http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.ph...31720#poststop) While still in the testing faze, I think the hub was the right choice. But I also think it will take a lot of long climbs once the snow clears to really test it. I'd love to hear your impressions.

    the frame is a combination of ox platinum and verus ht. and they go for about 700 +or - depending on options. and the chainring is a 38T raceface DH ring

    i'll let you know more when i know more, i like the hub so far... super positive shifting. and oh so clean looking.

    great looking bike.. I have one on order from Walt right now, I can't wait till it's done. Too much snow to take it out here anyway.

    Walt is quoting $800 for his rohloff ready frame.

    wow really sharp looking - can you give us the rundown on the geometry numbers for that frame?

    And can you take some close up photos of the welds etc. etd?

    Thanks!

    the eccentric makes the geometry a little fuzzy but measuring it where i have it set up, the seattube is 12" cc, top tube is 22" i believe the angles are 71 at the head 73 at the seat. chainstays are 425mm. the bb height currently is just a hair over 13" i believe. (tons of ground clearance!) i didn't ask for this but i have a strange feeling that walt took into account that i would only be running a single chainring, and that it would be on the outer side of the spider, so he put the chainstays on the absolute ends of the bb shell and it left me with all the tire clearance i could ask for.

    i'll try to get some more pics up sometime soon. so far though, it rides great, and the rohloff just looks the $#it. i'll say more about it once i've put a couple hundred miles on it.

    more pics

    I'd also like to see more pics. I've started the process of having a Walt built for me as a 29er SnoCat equipped bike for Alaska. I'm only going to run two chainrings, and am also after lots of chainstay/tire clearance to accomodate a wide tire mounted on a wide rim. How about posting more pics of that area for an idea of how much clearance yours has.

    Yours looks good, it's getting me jazzed....
