Hi, looking at getting a 2017 hornet, from http://slam69.co.uk/2017-dartmoor-hornet-frame---275-21104-p.asp, but the frame looks different from the dartmoor website, in that it doesn't have the triangle seat tube brace thing on the seat tube. All the bikes I've seen in this forum have the brace thingy, but all the other places to buy the frame dont have it:https://26bikes.com/shop/parts/frames/enduro-all-mountain/prod/dartmoor-hornet-17. Anyone know why?

The frame looks dope, but I think that if you make the combo with red handlebar/black stem, instead of red stem/black handlebar will be better. And why don't put 200mm front rotor ? A few extra grams, but a huge braking power Smile
Waiting for project finale photos, it will be cool !

The Bar I am going with only comes in the Black/Grey option, and I didn't want red to be an overbearing color on the build, and I was also thinking a 200mm rotor on the front, but wasn't sure. So I'll keep the stem red, as I think with it and the brake levers it'll accent the rest of the bike really well Big Grin . The Ti bolts are also black lol.

Ride a bit of everything and semi-trial.

Another option would be the Diamondback Sync'R pro.

Hi guys,
I'm buying a Primal Plus and building a 29er.
Does anyone know first hand the tire clearance on that model.
And even better, maybe a model of the tire which fits for sure Smile
Cheers,
Matija
