Steel it is, and "raw" at that, with skinny fork legs .....

Keep going

You didn't go for one of his steel 29ers, or did you?

And now for the gorgeous forks.....

Resulting in the mock up shots.......

Plenty of mud clearance.... (the tyres are flat by the way...!)

Paragon Machine Works rear drops....

And of course not forgetting the headtube badge by Jenny....

So, just a short wait and will send this up to Kevin Winter soon for its paint job, huzzah!

No...... this is to my own geometry, he interpreted it..... I'm after something that will kick the shit on the city streets and still be perfectly fine to take off road hence the mixture of both road and mountain bike geometry.

Nice frame but, why the raw finish? Doesn't FTW do paint?

Yes FTW does paint but it would have bumped the costs up astronomically for what I'm after and once you add that to the shipping costs the taxes would have been even higher.... so, getting it done on these shores instead.

I have my eye on Kevin Winter however it depends on if he can work with the paint 'recipe' so to speak, that's all I'm saying as far as any colour goes at the mo!
