    First frame design critique - 160mm 27.5 hard tail-ht01-1.jpg

    Any thoughts? I like high bars, I'm 6'. Trying to keep it relatively simple with all straight tubes.

    I'd never be able to build a bike to that level of precision.

    It's very short for your height.

    27.5" wheeled hardtails are for very short people. Get some 29" wheels on that thing.

    opinions are like assholes, but that looks like a capable bike to me.
