    Frank took those pictures of angie's bike while I was already out of town.
    He doesn't bother to check to see if pictures are actually in focus, but here's another fuzzy one.




    5" fork steel 650b hardtail for enduro racing in the UK. It has and oversized seatube and cable routing for a dropper post.

    Frank and I have a mutual customer in the UK(who is nice enough to buy the race bikes for his team from us), and this is a christmas bonus for the female DH racer he sponsors.
    She's the fastest woman in the UK that isn't on a full-bore World Cup team and Lee wanted to surprise her with a pretty sweet gift.

    It has a platinum headbadge(!) and a really swell custom Frank Wadelton decal set.


    The bike with all of the metal up front is one of them trendy 29" wheel dealios for a 6" fork with a short chainstay(16.7 iirc) etc.





    Full 1.5" headtube, custom horizontal sliding dropouts, bent seatube with machined seat collar, formed square stays with iscg bb for Hammerschmidt mounting.

    Then I remembered that there is a pretty sweet set of ramps next door...

    Thanks for the words Nick. If it wasn't for people like Bruce being so vocal about the SOPWAMTOS cause in the '90s I wouldn't be here.

    Mickey,

    I was bangin' around the web and came across some chatter about Skeletors...... the guy claimed he test rode your personal rig and that you had a fairly long stem on it (something over 120 I think). Is this a personal thing, or is this a common set up on skeletors/havocstaffs?

    Interesting question:

    Road bikes handle best with the longest stems and narrowest bars the customer can logically use.
    It makes for a bike that is more stable at speed, more comfortable sprinting and has more even weight distribution between the wheels. I don't like low bottom brackets, so the front end doesn't weight itself- you need the rider out there for optimal stability.


    My general rules for nominally "normal" sized bikes that are raced in endurance events:

    road bike- 120-140mm (nominally 130), narrow-ass bars
    cx race bike- 110mm stem, widest bars you can handle
    XC race/trail bike- 110mm stem(700-740mm bars)


    how it usually works out:

    XC race bikes and road bikes will have the same saddle tip to handlebar reach, CX bikes will be ~2cm shorter(to accommodate wider bars and a hood-specific riding position). All the bikes will have the same "turn-in feel" at the bars and wrists will move through a familiar feeling arc in space while you turn the bars.




    for a vibe-
    pictures of some of my personal bikes stacked outside getting spring tunes





    A trained eye would immediately pick up the fact that all of these bikes are ridden by the same person.

    Thanx.....I'm getting back into it after being away for a while and I've been getting myself caught up on the differences from when I was riding in the early 90's. I use to ride a 56, right now I'm on a litespeed that measures out at 55.5 with a 110 stem....... I'm crit racing again so I'm leaning towards a smaller spooky with a longer stem for exactly the reasons you stated
