Geometry breakdown:
-69.5 head tube angle, set up for 100mm travel taper/thru Fox. Bomber.
-42cm chainstays (41.5cm effective) with Paragon postmount sliders.
-23" effective toptube and 644mm front center
-74 seat tube angle, 11.9" BB height, s-bends, 2.4" tire clearance, blah blah blah.
-Not pictured is the direct mount derailleur mount that I still need to put on, as well as a second set of cable guides for the rear derailleur.

And yes, my descent into hypocrisy and irrelevance continues - this frame has a totally functionless curved toptube, just because Kevin wanted it to look different. I can only hang my head in shame and await your cruel barbs and jests. Dicky, I'm looking at you...

Everybody slips up. Just don't make a habit out of it!

Acceptable number of irrelevantly curved tubes?

No more than one.

Acceptable number of totally irrelevant tubes?

None, none more than none.

Is that a Chariot I spy in the background?

So, shortly after having a child, you find yourself compromising your building philosophy... The lack of sleep is getting to you!

mister garro warned me, "once you build one, everybody and their damned dog will want one." there is no turning back from this point.
