The Ericmobile!

140mm of single-pivot plushness, baby (actually, it gets more like 150mm, but who's counting?)

Not sure if I ever posted geometry numbers on this bad boy, I'll check on that later tonight.

Edit: Nope, never posted anything. Here's the vitals:
-140mm travel front/140+mm travel rear. A swap of rockers will get you to 160 (but also require a longer fork to keep the geometry dialed)
-67 degree head tube angle, 104mm trail, 71cm front center
-43cm chainstays
-63.2cm effective toptube
-ISCG mount, single ring only, 31.6mm dropper post, built with TT Supertherm beefy tubes for Eric's shredding pleasure
-From somewhat fuzzy memory, the frame with shock and hardware was around 7.5#

And yes, folks ordering an FS frame - I can have the rear end (though not the rockers) powdercoated to match (or not match) the color of the front. Upcharge varies from $50-100 depending on whether the color matches the front.

Hey Walt,

I thought I was going to be the first one with a FS with a fully coated orange frame with blue decals... and it's only 3 frames away! LOL

Do you have any more of those blue decals? I like the "custom" one too.

Nice, Nice, NICE bike!

Tangentially related question: do people in UT root for the Broncos like people in NM or WY would?

Unfortunately, I had the decals locally printed, I wanted another decal I saw in on Walt's blog from a couple of years ago, but was no longer available. So, Walt sent me the vector(art) files, and I used Adobe Illustrator to enlarge and change the color to "Pure Cyan" as the blue. Plus White Brothers was nice enough to send me their art as well, and I got the fork to match too.

Peter C., if you want, I can contact my local guy and get a pair of downtube decals printed, just email me at:

Can you have paragon sliders welded on the rear end? Singlespeed full suspension!
