Angles and weight on the link above, fair bit lighter than a Covert, lighter than Butcher etc, prices seem high but remember that on quite a few frames an RP23 etc are at upgrade cost, not standard

Nice. Only had a quick look at the pic earlier.

Not enough detail in the link....  and that is heavy, compared to a Covert or Butcher it is comparable but against many others it is a tad weighty.

Cost seems like good value, would like to try one.

Wheelbase, chainstay lengths, leverage ratios... you know... details.

Coverts are heavy....

HA is 66.5 with 529 A to C so with a 545 A to C that will slacken out to near 65.5 which would be pretty slack for a trail bike, it would lift the 338mm BB a bit which looks a tad low....   could be a really fun bike if they have nailed the poppy ride they were looking for.

Full info will be available when it's for sale.  Bb height good for a thrashing trail bike with 150mm forks
