    Default Skeletor

    Flux's Darkside is awesome looking.

    Here's my Skeletor, which is the road-going version.

    That skeletor looks skeletal. I never get sick of them in black either. But alas, I think we are about to make some green and red ano'd ones as well.

    Hey Flux, are you using studded tires on that rig?? If so which ones?

    What kind of fork do you have? Is it rigid? Very nice...

    Justin has some sort of generic branded carbon/alu rigid fork. The same as the Whitebrothers/origin8. Rigid forks make me happy.

    Second pic. Excuse the misaligned rear tire. When stan's decides to cooperate, you gotta go with it. I nearly photoshopped it out. Yeah, that self-conscious.

    suspectdevice: a while back you posted a photo of a guy manualing a 24" street / trials bike...any info on this frame? Is it a similar concept to the 24UK or Inspired?

    The same thing, but better! Full Truetemper Supertherm( that's thick OX platinum to the roadies on here), built to order (custom geo down to 14" stays) for $900. It's not cheap, but it's fun! I am waiting on the UK to give me a larger PO for them and we will make them in larger numbers for hopefully $150 less.

    Sounds fun! I'd love an Inspired but the top tube is too short for my ape-arms and there is no rear disc mount

    What are your views on BB height for this style of bike? Does the BB really need to be +35mm to compensate for the 24" wheels?

    Garson, the dude who is way better than me at street type riding really likes the high bb on the first proto (We were running 45!), I am more apt to go with +25 if I ever get around to building one for myself, as I will ride it much more like a bmx bike, but am week-ass sexual chocolate after too much desk time and too much road riding, so I still need a bunch of pop...

    The high bb's are wicked fun for spinning, but certainly give the bike a pretty novel feel. A high bb is also really great for pump in a manual.

    Checking the drawings for the next batch, we are likely going to go with +12 for extra Van Homan-ness
    I attached a bikecad sketch of the planned stock frame...

    lots of lines!

    I've never owned anything more than a +25mm but a quick spin on an Adamount was a learning experience about +50. Not for me - or at least not for me on a trials bike. My current 26" is 0mm which works ok for me.

    355 chainstays?? That's toite like a tiger!

    That geo looks like a proper bastardized bike - in a good way :-D Will it come with the severed unicorn as a headbadge?

    That looks like awesome geo for a fun all round bike.
    Back when I used to ride trials I wanted a bike like that.
    I ended up riding a hand full of different DeSalvo's, the last two having much more Trails'y geo than that (1090 wheel base etc).
    When I first got into trials (late 90s) anything with a + BB was crazy! Times have changed...
