    Looks like orange is making a comeback. Perhaps the new pink? Nice looking frame, going to run ebb so that you could run SS or gears? I only assume, due to it being posted on the SS board. Either way, nice ride. What will be the final build?

    Cheers,

    Versatility

    The hanger/cable stops are for versatility only, I plan on it being SS 95% of the time. It will have a Ti rigid fork, Hugi 240 wheels, Magura Marta brakes, Raceface Dues cranks... I will post pictures just as soon as my King headset and Bushnell EBB arrive so I can build it.

    bout versatility. Keeps the options open for sure. I was going to spec a new fram with hangar and ebb. But found a deal on a used ebb, with almost identical geo to my geared bike. (actually proly the same), from the same manuf. So I have 2 bikes for versatility! Wife hates it. I love it.

    Nice build options. Please do post. I hope to post my finished product next week.

    Cheers,

    We can only hope. Sorry guys, the Mary Kay look even though it turns heads, is still butt ugly. IMHO of course.

    Its not often that you see a framebuilder who builds the seatclamp directly in the frame. I think its great.

    Bout your rack

    Is that a specific wall mounted bike rack? If so how much weight can it hold and how many bikes etc., and where can I get one?

    This is the company that bought out the manufacturer that made my rack (Black-BUA Rack 10025): http://www.sportssolutions.net
