Reken I recken...

I got my sights set on those Reken frames.:thumbsup: Another one of those "matching bikes/gear" set ups that I talked about in a thread I started recently. One for me & one for my wife. :thumbsup: The price is right...the frame construction seems to be right...I just hope those drop outs are strong enough for a big Clyde like myself ! .:skep:

Very nice, I think we all have that same seat post haha. No complaints though. What kind of fork is that? What parts do you have rigged up on it?

Has anyone ridden the Sette Ace? I've been shopping around for a new FS and have been thinking about the Giant Trance X3, but was curious about the Ace. I'm trying not to spend too much money, but would still like a nice bike that can handle reasonable amounts of xc abuse....

^^^ I have no experience w/ the Ace, but I can tell you that Sette 'makes' some quality sh!t for the $$$!
I own the Flite (as well as other Sette products) and it's a dead-ringer for a KHS AM (and pretty close to a Giant AC). Sette's frames are made by the same company as many other 'big name' brands are in Taiwan.
*side note - I remember back in the '80's 'Made in Taiwan'= crap ;)

rob.char said in his post "Can we have a Official Sette bike/frame thread?"
I have no idea why this is in here. I originally put it in the bike/frame forum. Anyone have any experience with a Sette roadie? Contemplating on getting a roadie for training purposes.
