finally went the whole 9yrds & got a proper SS. local manufacturer Avanti cromo frame swapped out the standard SS cranks for the 180 raceface's & post seat for the syncros. future updates to hope race x2 brakes & hope SS wheel set...that will mean loosing around a 1000g with folding tires... 8)

Love these and really want one!
Glad you didn't get the 29er model, don't look anywhere near as nice.

that's right the last new large left.....& all mine. It is a g8 ride. The 29ers are ok but they can't take a suspension fork... :cry:
dropping the weight & adding 190mm cranks makes all the difference. I can't wait to get a lighter wheelset & go hard. might go for notubes ztr hubs as they are way cheaper than hopes or kings. DT REv spokes & 717 disc rims. But with hope race x2 brakes...I love the set on my other bike.... :D

Yes a really nice frame with an EBB, plus an alloy drop out that can be changed if you want to run gears but why would you..... 8)
There are a few new medium ones left, but they are all 2010 models avanti dropped the 26" from their 2011 model line... :(

I was thinking of adding the lettetrs M.A. to the frame. KISS My Ass (as I ride on bye) one back for the SS club over the geared riders :P .
