Nice!

I'm contemplating on frame size, 18" or 20", which one yours is, and how tall are you? And how long is that fork?

On-One told me 20" slot dropout frames are due to shipping by the end of July (currently out of stock), biggest difference to 18" is the seat tube length...

Have you weighted the complete bike?

cheers,

Im 6f 2'' and Im on the limit of the 400mm seatpost. I also contemplated getting a 20" but Im so glad I got the 18. The reach is perfect. The fork is a 100mm. Weight is 11kg...about 24lb.

Thanks! Very helpful info, especially as I'm 6f 3" - I will wait for the 20", my inseam is very long so I doubt the 18" would work for me.

cheers!

does the slot frame still come with the removable v-brake bosses? I would pick one up now but I don't to throw down for new hubs and brakes at this juncture, unless of course I could run one of the many v-brakes I already have laying around, not being used... for the mean time atleast.

Beautiful bike btw.

No, no removeable v brake bosses, although the site still indicates it does.
Thank you for that, I saw your thread from months ago but there was never any info regarding a definitive answer... looks like disc brakes are the only way now-a-days.

the chain line was off when you moved the ring to the middle and the cog between the spacers?

he mounted the ring to the outside of the spider.
yes but if he were to install the ring in the middle(center position of the spider) and the cog between the spacers would the chain line be off?

I tried mounting the chainring on the inside and moving the cog. But the chain line was a little off. Its a perfect straight line as it is now.

I assume the reason Nuck asked about moving the chainline inboard is the farther from the bike's centerline the chainline rests, the more torque is applied to frame deflection when pedaling. That is to say the more leverage the rider will put into bending the chainstays whenever hammering the pedals.
