    Got a "new" frameset to build

    So far, I haven't found any cracks in this one. Fingers crossed...

    Nice frame! If you're looking for a triple-clamp/double-crown fork for the frame let me know. I have a never used 2012 Rockshox Boxxer World Cup Solo Air for sale.

    Thanks, Bikelord. I'm guessing that Boxxer costs more than my entire rig, especially if it's 200mm.

    Still the same so far. I'm still collecting parts for the build, as well as simply haven't gotten to it yet. One thing that slowed me down is that for some reason, the head tube is the tiniest bit undersized, such that the new headset cup I have that should fit will not. It's literally about 0.1mm too tight. I've tried the freezer with the cup, etc., but no luck so far. Maybe a fancy headset press would work, but I think the tube needs just the slightest bit of reaming. It's (if memory serves) 38.6mm, and I literally just need it to be 38.7 or 38.8 to fit.

    Good luck on that. I'm glad mine came with a Chris king many years ago when I got mine. Good thing you got that frame , much nicer looking then mine I for sure. Can't wait to see it built! What fork are you going with?

    For now I'm going to reuse the old-ass Monster T that came with my cracked S8, but I'm "background" looking for something newer and lighter. I have a vision in my head of what I'd like it to be, we'll see if I ever get there...and ever have a good place to really try it out!

    The same headset that won't fit into this one fits perfectly into the cracked frame, so for some reason this frame is just that tiniest bit undersized. Strange. We have some custom frame fabricators here in Detroit, so I'm going to eventually contact them and see if they can just touch up the headtube for me.

    The MonsterT will be badass. I have a rare dual air SuperT on mine. Still holding strong!
