In the spirit of "bringing something to the table", thought I'd share my recent creation. It's frame #3 for me. First "real" mtn bike. Frame #1 was a cross/commuter. Frame #2 a mtn frame for the better half (but won't see much hard trail time).

Nice bit of work! I though it was a 29er and it is (sort of)!

You are a tall lad like myself, but not quite so much.

I guess I'd qualify as general public here so, yes, he is. I simply emailed him and ordered a set. Great guy to work with and great product. My go-to choice for sliding dropouts.
Cool - I asked him about buying the dropouts a while back and at the time he was only selling to builders with liability insurance. Great to see an excellent dropout design available to a broader base.

Yeah, they're wicked

My only gripe is that, especially given the price, they *really* should be stainless. Maybe we should all bug him to make some.

Very cool, dig the stays.

Hows the ride?

Going to keep it bare, or is paint forthcoming?
It will be painted in a couple of weeks while I'm out of town on vacation. Altho the bare look is cool. Not sure my fillets are worthy of exposing at this point anyway.
