@ berryz: sounds like you give your frames a hard time haha. Well I've got long legs and a 400mm post leaves more than enough post inserted in the seat tube to minimise risk of cracks from flexing/levering and I can get the full extension on my legs for pedalling. I measured my inside leg and compared with the geo chart to see what length seat post I'd need in addition to the length of the seat tube, to get the right height and ensure enough seatpost was inserted in the tube. Might be worth doing the same comparison for yourself?

love the colour, is that available stock or was it a respray? Want to build my Mrs a bike and she's a shorty so needs a max 14" frame. How would you rate the 4x geo for use as light trail duties for a hobbit?

:-D

edit: I see it is a stock colour!

After 4 years on my Dartmoor wish, I'm finally upgrading. Hoping to get a Dartmoor Wish 2014 frame (have a deal that's too difficult to resist).

Anyone has experience with the Wish as a trail bike?

I use the 2013 wish (currently selling) I find the frame a but small in length and seat tube height but if you are a smaller rider it should be great. Not the best climber but is great on the descents and jumps.

Anyone here know if there's any adapters for the Revolt front hub, currents it's 20mm but looking at getting a fork with a 15mm axle and don't really want to buy a new one as I've got the jet fuel hub without brake mounts. would it be possible to get a sleeve made up and shave 5mm of each end if adapters are not available?

Depends on whether the fork can accept the outer 20mm caps where those would slide into the forks usual recesses for the caps.

Anybody in the group ride a ghetto?

Would the hornet frame crack if I would put a 203 mm fork on it?
