I'm looking at a new frame here soon and since I pretty much only ride trails do these specs look good? They're custom...I pulled the bb height out my ass so im not sure if that'll stay. This will be pretty much be a strictly trails only frame

Head Tube 74°
Rear End Length 13.9”
Seat Tube Angle 71°
BB Height 11.65
Stand over Height 9”

Looks sweet. Id personally get a lower stand over for trails so you can get whips and cans a bit easier. 8.25-8.5 would sound about right imo.

Ok thanks for the input! I'll probably lower it a little but I hate tailwhips and dont do cans unless im at a jam or something. I'm thinking maybe 8.6

Sure am. Figured just splurge on one good frame and be done (hopefully) forever with buying frames.

Could get a T-1 Ruben if you can compromise on BB height.

Stay with the 9 stand over height.

What is this frame going to cost you?

9-9.5" standover. Anything lower is shit. If you can't can or whip with a 9.5" standover, you won't be able to can or whip with a 8.25" standover. Plus higher standover will make a frame stronger.

Yeah i was looking at other frames specs and none that I would consider had lower than 9". But everything else seems legit to ya'll? Im still undecided on a TT length. Right now mine is 20.75..I'm thinking maybe that or 21

For a trail frame I recommend you a longer frame like 21" or 21.25" (but may it's too big for you ? even if the difference is really tiny, how tall are you ?).
And I think the Terrible one Ruben, could be your perfect frame in the 21.25 version (you can see all the specs here , i know it's a french website, but it's good to check the specs).

That geo's just about perfect. I'd go with a 21" TT personally and change the CS length to 13.5-14"

For trails you're gonna wanna go with a top tube that's about 0.25" longer than you would normally ride. I normally ride 20.75" but my Steadfast is 21" and I love it.

With the longer chainstay I think it makes more sense to go 21" too

I pretty much only ride trails.
I'm 5"8' and ride 21.125

10/31/2014 6:55 PM

Im 5'8" and a 20.75 feels kinda short. I think my current specs and 21" TT will be perfect. Im stoked!

Reminds me of the frames I had years ago...loved my failure frame and that was a 14+ rear...thing spun better than my Lacey does...sadly a dipshit friend of mine borrowed it to get by and promptly got it stolen sad
