2 questions

How does the stem work (being adjustable)

Are they considering a 20 inch?

Ant,
(IMG:http://www.answerbmx.com/Stem_lg.jpg)
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.

quoted from another thread that asked the same question
"Haven't weighed it.
Ssquared were intent that the cromo frame looked like the alu one, but they will most likely slim down all of the tubes for the next proto.
For now I'm just giving them feedback on the handling/geometry."

I understand the purpose of having prototypes. Was just wondering if it was something you wanted to try out or just a cool one off. I have always thought the mid bb would be nice for a race bike just limits the rider’s choices on cranks. I was gonna give you some props for wanting to try something new but I guess it is just something John threw on there for you.

Carl, was running that type crank so it worked out. The production ones will most likley have a slightly different material for the chain and seat stays and the race ones will have a euro BB and the trail/street/park will have the mid is what we are looking at. Then again we can make it whatever way you want.

Sorry, I wasn't trying to talk down to you; just saying that Ssquared was experimenting with the mid bb on my frame.

There you go; straight from the man; and letting a little something out of the bag about trail/street/park frames in the plans.
