^hot!!! now are you going to build me one? I have some measurements in mind. what kind of geometry did you use for that? I have ridden a Karate Monkey, Vassago Jabberwocky, Soma Juice, and currently a ROS 9 and I think I have an idea what I liked and didn't like about all of those frames.

I based the geo off my old Specialized Crave SL (Size medium) and made a few changes.
Basic specs (Crave specs in brackets):
HT: 70deg (71.5deg)
ST: 72deg (73deg)
BB Drop: 58mm (63.5mm)
CS: 444mm (442mm)
Wheelbase: 1087mm (1086mm)

Slackened HT for stability at speed and while descending. Raised the BB to reduce rock strikes and because I like a high BB on BMX bikes. Shortened the TT to compensate for using a longer stem on this build. I've done about 100km (60 miles) on it so far and it performs pretty much exactly as I'd hoped.

If you're really interested in having one built, PM me your email address and I'll contact you once I've got my ducks in a row and am able to build for others (just need to sort out some more tooling and a few other things).


That ss 29er is stunning!

Cheers!
