Dia De Los Lanclos

74.5 HA, 77 SA, (based on 425mm fork) 15" CS, -10mm BB height

some fun on the full suspension. I will try an 83mm BB on the next version to accomodate a wider main pivot. This current one has the bearings set at about 68mm, the next will have ~76mm width. Wider = stiffer.

21.75 TT, 73 SA, 69.5 HA, 14.5 CS, Euro BB at -10mm with 485mm ATC fork


Marque's frame is powdercoated now. Unfortunately the trans sparkle blue is a bit more opaque and the graphics underneath aren't as apparent as I had hoped. That's what stickers are for I guess. I put a little trans red bolt in the seat binder and the color scheme reminds me of the old Schwinn homegrown theme from the 90s.

Got a new ROCO TST air shock for the fully. I'm liking the stiction that an air shock has. Cut out much of the bobbing from the pedal stroke... and its half the weight of the coil.

SA: 74

Tim's is 100% welded. Powdercoat colors should arrive later this week. They would not ship them right before the weekend due to the heat. Apparently the powder can cure in a hot vehicle... I will have Marque's frame ready for finish by Wednesday.
