Strengths:    light weight frame, with great cable routing options. Having the options to go single speed or geared.

Weaknesses:    low bottom bracket height, I keep hitting my pedals on roots and rocks.

Bottom Line:   
I love the bike, it handle really good and climbs like a mountian goat. My only complaint so far is the low bottom bracket height.

Looking for advice on my next build, just not sure how these two frames ride - any major differences? My last bike was a Sette Razzo; pretty nice ride, but not spectacular. Any other steel frames worth mentioning, that compare to the Bandersnatch? Thanks in advance!Read More »

Recommendations Chupacabra vs. Ti (either the Optimus Ti OR Carver 99er Ti)

I have finally settled into the fact that my main ride is going to be my SS rigid. Currently I am running a Misfit Psycles Dissent AL. I love themisfit, but I have to admit I am somewhat weight-weenie-ing my bike. I have carbon seatpost, stem and bars, Raceface XC deus cranks, and XC one wheelset ... Read More »
