I've been seriously considering this frame. I love my monocog, and it has seen many hundreds of miles of hard trail... the sette frame seems to have similar geometry, and the alu wouldn't flex like 4130 under hard load. I'm just wondering if that would make the ride too harsh. I've learned to float over most of the rough stuff, but still... $100 seems like an okay price for a worthy experiment. It isn't fancy... but then, neither is the 'cog.
Ahh... thanks for that. I was under the impression that the 2006 'cog was slacker than 72 deg.
Comparing the geometry between the 'cog and the Reken is quite interesting. Geometry is generally slacker by 1 deg, the Reken has a lower BB height though and a longer wheelbase. All in all, I would expect the Reken to have a really nice ride, but not quite as agile or twitchy as the 'cog.
