So its new bike time, superb! I've seen loads of bike threads on this site over the years where individuals post photos with only small sections of the frame available and allow forum users to play the guessing game. I find these threads a little frustrating if i dont know what the bike as these games can go on for a while before you find out what the bike is. Now its my turn though so im going to do the exact same! :twisted:

Lets see how good you lot are with new bikes this time instead of old.

interesting. Square chainstays scream ali but seatstays that thin says steel, so I'm going to say Chromag as they used to make steel frames with massive square chainstays?

Sorry fella :lol: , I do love a nice Chromag! I was on the lookout for one for a while but seem to be in between sizes. Look forward to the build.

Liking the looks of that.

I like the fact you look to have a decent length ST with a slightly dipped TT to maximise standover.

What length travel fork is it built around?
