Nice frame, love the colour!
The geometry looks a bit strange, is the fork to high fotr the frame?



The frame was never designed for a 100mm fork but with a bit of sag set it handles fine. I have run a 100mm fork on my Caldera now for several years and that was originally based on a 65mm fork.

All is good.

Super clean build 8) where did you get the cable cover stuff if you don't mind me asking?


If you mean the red stuff then it came with my Avid Flackjacket cables - the gear set was nearly enough cable to cover two bikes!

Thank you for the comments.

Really love the build man! Your frame sure looks a hell of a lot nicer than the one i just bought.
