Did you customize the BB height too when choosing to go for a custom geo? If not, what is your experience with the quite high BB of this bike?

Did you end up going with Stantons 18” frame and then extend the reach to the 19.5”? Just curious on how you customized the geometry. Thanks

That a great Bike! Love it.
I habe some question, I hope you could help me out.
How is the tyre clearance in the back. Would a 2.5" DHF fit?
Could you descirbe the suspension feeling in a few words.
Any weight available?

Hi mate, sorry about the late reply!

I have 2.4” Goodyear Newton’s fitted and there’s not a lot of clearance left. I’m guessing you probably could fit a 2.5 back there but it would be close. Probably best to email the boys at Stanton and see if they’ve tried...

Weight wise I’m at 16.2kg with DH tires.

Suspension is exceptional. It pedals Extremely well and is plush enough on the decents. Very capable for a 140mm travel bike.

"As good as it gets"............Good mixture right there. Can't complain.
