Funny, I was just gonna ask the same question.

That A Frame looks pretty trick with the sliding vertical drop outs & disc mount but, I'm not sure about cranking hard on it up hill...

Got a gearie buddy who's got one...he likes alot, i reckon..
Gearie huh... did your buddy steal a derailleur hanger from a Explosif or Cowan frame. Isn't it tricky to weld on derailleur cable stops?

The very big picture:

Strangely it cost $1000 less than The King frame, I know that The King has Scandium tubing and a AVA shock, but is it really worth it?
The A has a really cool half-polished look which you don't see on many mid-range bikes, big-arse bearings on the BB and so much machined goodness.
If you want to run it geared modify it with trick machinery, I know... you do have to get a rear shock before the bike rolls anywhere.

Why did you even mention the "gearie" part in the first place?, unless you're a dedicated SSer and you discriminate against geared folks.

What's up with you Padre ? That's the second or third time this week somebody jumped all over your back for what seems like no reason.
