Thanks for the timing info!I think the geo and build specs will be similar to the current evo 2 except we'll be looking at a 44mm headtube.
Not sure where I read it but I think the chainstays are 430mm. So that would mean almost zero chainstay growth for the larger models.Thanks for the timing info!
That's my guess on the geometry as well but it still leaves room to wonder what will change to accommodate the larger wheels. Chainstays on the 26" Evo2 are as long as many of the latest 29er AM hardtails so I'm hoping Brant hasn't extended them from the Evo2
I just got a reply from another US rep who says the frames are arriving in the UK in the next few days. I wonder which one is correct??I got an email today from the Planet X USA rep who said the 45650B frames would not be available until mid February and that date was still subject to change.......
Both could be correct if the full first run of frames is going to their main UK warehouse and the US warehouse isn't getting any until a planned second run. That's my guess at leastI just got a reply from another US rep who says the frames are arriving in the UK in the next few days. I wonder which one is correct??
It's already available in UK but in limited sizes... On-One 45650B FrameAnswer from On-One uk:
"Frames are starting to arrive - but in limited sizes and colour options until the full batch lands in early January. We'll be relelasing a build and a preorder very shortly (before Christmas)."
I'm not sure what the status is on the US frames but it seems that UK frames are coming soon!
I put in an order for a 16" 45650B yesterday. I ordered it through Brandon @ Planet X USA. He thinks that the frame will arrive within 2 weeks. If I understood correctly, they only had a handful of frames on the way to the US, with more arriving at the end of January. I have a Fox 34 27.5 CTD 120-150 TALAS fork ready, and am shopping for a new wheelset now. I'm still debating whether to try and do a cheap 1x10 build or just stick with 2x10. I hope to pick up the rest of the parts via various Xmas sales and build this bike up soon.
