    Has anyone on here had a frame built by Scott Quiring? Please share some pics and experiences. Thanks.

    Awesome paint jobs! (never owned, just want one!).

    Lot of love for your Qball frames on the 29er forum.

    Looking forward to seeing what you get. Scott is on my short list of builders for a steel 29er.

    Not to jack the thread, does anyone know how the Deda ZeroUno steel compares to Reynolds 853 or True Temper OX Platinum?

    I have always been fond of the frame that says "Jason_paint_booth" and in the past, spoke to Doug about duplicating this finish for me, which he said he could. I just like the color combo's and they way they blend together. I am also rather fond of panels too.

    That looks awesome Green Monk. I can't wait to see it when you have it built up as well as ride reports.

    Is that a 29er?

    Did Scott build that with the Ventana rear end? It looks like it to me.

    That is probably going to be my next bike if so.

    Barring any unforseen problems I hope to finish building my Quiring 29er steel hardtail tomorrow.


    I also want to compliment you Sunburst576 on a nice lloking bike.

    You are welcome. That looks like it is going to be a really nice build.

    Here is a picture of my frame which i have had now for almost two months and haven't built up. :eek:

    Scott is great to work his - he listens and does what you want, but also offers a lot of advice based on his experience. The paint is the amazing part.

    I know my experience working with Scott on my frame was topnotch and I will be adding another to my bikes sooner then later!

    Those are three very sweet looking rides MichiganClydesdale! Out of curiousity how tall are you? The cross and mountain bike look to be pretty big based on the headtube length. Is the mountain bike a 29er? If so the tires look tiny compared to the frame.

    Awesome thread!
    This is an awesome thread, I love Scott Quiring's bikes, and I love working (I do work at a bike shop, and we do sell his bikes, so I am a little biased) with him. Here is a bike he built up for a buddy of mine recently:


    That is a full suspension 29r with the Ventana rear. It is absolutely amazing. We've ridden it on a few trails over the past month, and this thing is DIALED! We are gonna be rocking this badboy at the Lumberjack next month too.

    That is a sweet looking bike sony. Your buddy is really lucky. I am guessing it is Ti. What size rear tire will the Ventana rear end handle? I mainly ask because I am thinking of having Scott build me a full sus Ti 29r next year hopefully!

    Here is the frame I just finished building up today!

    I have two from Scott, plus I had a Q-Ball. Great work quality and a great guy. His racing and riding background adds another dimension to his designs.

    The full suspension tandem is actually an aluminum frame, not ti. We went aluminum for the lateral rigidity of it, and to do this bike in titanium would be astronomically (as opposed to just super-duper) expensive.

    As for tire width, we currently have a 1.9 Karma on the back, but we have it hooked up to a Velocity P-35 rim, so it is a wide 1.9 tire, you know? It looks like there is plenty of clearance though. I actually have a titanium 29r FS on order for myself right now from him, and should have it in about a month or so, so I will tell you for sure how much tire clearance there is. I plan on running 29x2.1 Maxxis Aspens on NoTubes ZTR Race rims.

    I can imagine how much that frame cost. I can understand going with aluminum as well. I look forward to seeing pictures of your bike when it is done. Now to start saving money for another frame. I wonder how much I could get for one of my kidneys?

    I am digging the color.

    Thanks Jerry. It looks even better in person with the sun out. I am really just loving this bike. Scott built exactly what I was looking for.

    You really can't beat Scott's Pricing on a custom Steel frame. You get a lot bang for your buck.

    Not to mention how easy and nice of a guy he is to work with.

    Scandium 26"... and yes, it's pink.


    My next Quiring will be a Ti 29er with a Lefty.

    Those are both great looking bikes.

    I am still waiting for some gear cables and for a new front mech to arrive. The bike has come in at 26.5lbs, much heavier than expected, I was hoping for a sub 25lb build, I intend to get either a FOX F32 100 or a RS SID which should bring the weight down a bit. Here are a few pics:

    what is the weight of the frame? my XL eriksen 29er frame with ventana design and tapered headtube comes in at about 2800g / 6lbs + some change.
  • 06-08-2011
    Green Monk
    the frame weighed 2590g, that was with the shock, headset and all of the ventana hardware fitted.
  • 06-09-2011
    hellocook
    sounds like a decent weight. hmm, not sure how you got to 26.5lbs.. must be the different parts accumulating. you don't have heavy components on it neither they are very light.
  • 06-09-2011
    Green Monk
    apart from the fork (a Menja) which is heavier than average all other parts are relatively light. I don't know what else I can change that will really make such a difference to the overall weight so apart from the fork i'm going to leave everything as it is.
