I like it. Ssquared Back. Are they making a 20" version?

I believe so.

When I contacted them about the cromo frames it was because they have had it listed on their website for a while.
Now that they made this first cromo frame for me; I think it has reenergized the desire to do a full cromo run.
This is the first one and we are already talking about tweaks for the next one, so it might take several tries to get the material specs just where they want them before they start building other sizes.

2 questions

How does the stem work (being adjustable)

Are they considering a 20 inch?

Ant,

By flipping the colored spacer (not colored on production stems) it will adjust the length.
Mini = 35-40 MM Reach
Expert = 40-45 MM Reach
Pro = 45-52 MM Reach
Pro XL = 50-57 MM Reach
Mine is the Pro XL run at 50mm.

I believe they will be doing a complete cromoly line in the future.

Why the Mid BB? If it is something you requested specifically than I completely get it. But, if it is to be the spec for the cromo frame wouldn’t that drastically limit the crank options for the riders.

It's a prototype and I am running cranks with a 19mm spindle so it is not an issue for me.
That's what prototypes are for; to experiment.

Cool frame!

I love the idea of being able to have the exact geometry and brand frames in Aluminum and Cromo. One for trails and one for race.
