My new custom made frame
my old gt was alright but the geometry wasn't quite right and there wasn't really anything I could do to correct it, so I went for a whole new frame. this was designed by both me and the builder to be nimble, yet still stable, and not have toe overlap.
The frame is double butted, lugged cro-mo, with eccentric BB made by lachlan flint in adelaide, australia.
forks: NS analog with v-brake mounts
drivetrain: shimano saint cranks with 29T/32T chainrings and blackspire bash guard, 17T/14T rear cogs, spds
headset: FSA orbit MX
wheels: sun rhyno light 32H with unknown hub, mavic xm719 32H front with surly hub
brakes: avid single digit 3, avid bb5, modified avid dual brake lever
seat: truvativ stylo 25mm setback seatpost, SDG bel-air seat
bars: token mono-q carbon, giant 50mm? stem, funn grips
currently just in primer and awaiting some braze ons for the brake cable, but I couldn't wait any longer to build it up
