Yes, they measure c-c. But Effective TT is 23", whereas my 18" Kona KK is 22.5

Here's there latest geo, but very similar to the 'older' frames...

sounds cool. modern bikes with their looong top tubes doesnt suit my long legs/short upper body. nice to know,should I stumble over a moots one day..

Hey Martin,

That´s one cool and ultrafrugal bike!
Looks really quick :twisted:

No more color on this one is needed, just perfect!

Ti is starting to get to me big time :wink:

I completely missed this thread. You built that up very quickly! I think I like the black wheels better myself, but you can't really go wrong either way. Have you settled on the final spec now?
