Greg's black to trans black: 14.7" CS, 27.2mm seatpost, tapered 34/44 headtube, Supertherm stays
 John's trails 20": 21.6 TT, 14.2" CS, 11.7 BB height
The captured nut seat clamp looks better, functions better and welds easier so I will try to use them on all the Stout frames from now on.

 Captured nut pinch clamp: much easier to weld but they cost 11X times as much as the normal ones.
 This frame will fit a 2.15" tire slammed at 14.7" and a 2.35" at about 14.9". Its got a Supertherm rear end which is .4 lbs lighter than the usual 1.2mm thick stays.

The winter weather has kind of put a bottle neck on stuff, specifically with powdercoating. I coat things on the porch of my studio so I am a bit susceptible to wind and rain. We had a good day finally and I got 3 of the ones in queue knocked out. I still have about ten others to go and it looks like this week is gonna be clear out.

The first tapered headtube I have built with. Definitely looking forward to seeing this one built out

 this color is pretty sweet- changes black to sparkle depending on lighting. Blackberry something...
