Right. What we have so far.

IF deluxe 29er. NO
Salsa. NO
Sanderson. NO
Not a custom job.

Not a Niner as they use centric bottom brackets instead of sliding dropouts.

Not a Genesis or Orange R8 as they use standard dropouts.

Not cotic or Surly.

My head is going to explode :x

Hoping for a similar ride but not the same.

This one will be built up (to start with) as a SS with 120mm rebas and fat tyres.

The stays look quite "noodley" so hopefully the ride will be smooth.

As soon as the forks arrive I will update. :D

Brilliant, well the site says the stays have been made a wider diameter, Looks like a really capable beast this new one, making me reconsider my current whim biddings on ebay actually! :D

If you've ridden Cotics and similar stuff I'll be interested in your reports about this. :) Looks heavier than a Soul but that not the end of the world, if its lighter than a BFe then great! :)
