wel it only comes in euro bb's which i personally think suck, and it has chain stay brake mounts meaning that you will have trouble running a gearing below 33-12 if you run a back brake.

other than that it is a really dope frame.

I'm running 33-12 w/ no problems at all, less than that may be an issue though. My chain is maybe 5mm above the evolvers I'm running.

the stricker is just another frame.
chainstay wishbone like many frames have...weighs in at like what? less than 6 pounds? crazy.
i think its rather cool but its just a frame...when i first saw it i actually though it was for racing...the triangle tubing looks rather thin.

This bike rotates so easily I've learned to 360 on flat super easy after struggling and failing before. I've laid a beating into it learning grinds after riding mostly trails. The Euro BB has even taken some nasty bangs and some grinding like a champ-Still round and solid. It's running fine and my cranks are happy if not a little grinded on as well :oops: .
The drop out design is also super trick-out of the way for grinds. The only thing I would change is to add the brake mounts to the seat stays, but like I said I'm running 33/12 fine and that's plenty small enough for me.

I was just worried about the dropout size. I'm running 39:15 on a G-Sport Homer (THE best hub on the planet), so I'm not worried about the brake lugs being on the chainstays, but will the dropouts be too small for my beast of a hub?

The are small drop outs, they covered the hazard hub and 14t ACS freewheel I was running. I can measure the drop out if you like and tell you how wide it is...stand by.

The drop outs are 2.5 inchs tall.

I was so close to having my frame powder coated yellow but did not. But I will with the next frame I buy-I did get the oh to common black.

Thanks for that. I shouldn't have too much trouble with my Homer. I'm gonna get the black coz I'm bored of my metallic-blue-and-very-camp old Miron. I just fancy a black bike for a change.
