I haven't weighed it yet and it is a proto frame. Horizontal drops will be on the production ones.

The frame is made of AN6 Aluminum.

Here is the geo specs:

Head Tube Angle - 69°
Seat Tube Angle - 72°
Head Tube Length - 115mm(4.52 inches)
Seat Tube Length - 350mm(13.78 inches)
Effective Top Tube length - 584.1mm (22.99 inches for the large frame)
Wheelbase - 1070mm (42.12 inches on the large frame)
Chainstay Length - 320mm (16.33 inches)
Bottom Bracket Height - 320mm (12.60 inches)
Standover Height - 730.8mm (28.77 inches on the large frame)

Just makes for more epic whips? haha

I will pass the feedback onto Tomac.

Seriously, any feedback is welcome. Since this is a prototype things can be changed for production. =]

Well, if you want my damn good opinion, I'll give you the D/L and help Tomac out in the process...

15.5 - 15.7 chainstays are most prime for dj/street/park for good stability and flickability. People will actually want to buy it if the chain stay isn't a mile long....

Large should have a 23.5 tt to even out the smaller chainstays and balance the bike out

Slacken the headtube just a tad to 68.5

If you take said advice the Large frame wheelbase will be around 41.5-41.75" which is optimal

BB height looks good... 320-325mm is a good range


Cheers :thumbsup:

exactly the point.

Chain stay really need to be in the 15s.

Check out the old yeti dj frame and the new improved frame geo, and you will see some of the major tweaks they did to make the frame more DJ friend, not to mention more manual-able.

The frame itself was designed to be both a DJ and 4x race frame.

Head tube angle is actually 68.5
Stays are 415mm
We wanted to test the frame with a slightly longer chainstay to accommodate for the newer style of steeper rougher 4x tracks that we are seeing in the World cups.
Weight is 1.92 kgs for the large size.

We have actually been riding the frames (both sizes) out here in Australia for the last 6 months, and the frame already has the QLD elite state 4x champs tittle as well as a 2nd place in the Elite Australian champs under its belt.

A pic of a complete and a bit of action.... Spec is yet to be decided.
