Hey so I recently ordered the flybikes geo frame. I noticed from looking around that there isn't a review or build on the frame so I thought I would make this topic to give it a review once I receive it. I got in Black toptube length 20.7.Photo

It looks really nice and the geometry looks pretty solid. Im pretty excited. Im currently running a Stranger Nomad 21 inch but it feels to big for me.

9.25 standover with a steep HT . Pretty sure it's straight gauge tubing as well on top of my head . I was super close to buying it . Happy with my Bonesaw , although a taller standover would have been nice

The frame feels so good. I just rode it for a little bit but it's super responsive and Manuel's just click in. I love how it feels. I have put some more abuse on it before I give a full review but as for right now it's dope

Damn that looks sick as fuck , I'm glad to hear it's a good frame . It was literally my 1st choice and I was super close to buying it . S&M dropped the Canadian specific Bonesaw , a 1664 collaboration and I got that instead . It has a mellowed HT at 75.25 and a 13.25 chainstay or something similar so I figured I'd try that incase 75.5 was too much . I really liked the fat dropouts and high standover on the Geo , mines only 8.8 so it's a tad low but I'm not bothered .

Most frames will be like that , I have to sit down and pull my chainstay with one hand and use my other to slip my Kink DS guard between the dropouts and driver but it works . As long as it's not stretched you'll be fine . Having it tight means it won't fall off so that's cool . How are the dropouts ? Pictures ?

Not since they released a 24mm spindle crank, it just wouldn't work with a spannish BB.

About the tiny weight difference... don't be that picky, and of that really matters, think on global bikeweight, not part by part, you earn a few oz with a larger BB, then you lose some with a bigger crank spindle because those are super hollow.
But whatever, I'm pretty sure if you had both identical frames with for only difference a spannish vs a mid BB, you wouldn't notice any difference.

It's not Spanish anymore. I actually prefer mid bbs I don't care for weight I just want a strong bike
