Thanks again for all the props.

Geo is as follows. They didn't have a mullet option on the website back then so I designed it around a 27.5 geo and made the fork 40mm shorter to account for the 40mm taller wheel. I like short chainstays so set them as short as I could fit with a straight seat tube and put in sliding dropouts so it could extend 20mm. I can go from 420-440.


Fork has a tapered steerer(which probably adds 1/2 lb) and weighs 1528g. It has a 51mm offset but like nullzwo says it looks weird when you do the offset this way. I don't mind it though.

The frame weighs 3127g and is equivalent to about a L/XL size. I did pay extra for the 725 tubing. Not sure it actually saves any weight though.

The ride quality is good. It's definitely on the stiff side. I ride with cushcore pro and run 15 psi in a 2.5 up front and 16 in a 2.4 out back. The front tire is an exo. The rear is closer to a DD casing. Low pressures definitely help.

Usually, I'm not very fond of camo/military colors bikes, but it works so well on yours. The camo green lyrik/raw titanium frame combo is just perfect Big Grin


I am not a militant person but have always loved those colors and woodland camo.

I’ll 2nd that[/Quote]

I'll 3rd that

That chromag is clean. Looks really nice. Never seen that fork colour before - nice.

Here is my custom Mullet. Really liking it so far.

Is that fork made by marino as well ? Looks killer !

fork and frame by marino. Reynolds 725. Custom engraving in the headtube and chainstay. custom geo, sliding dropouts. They did an awesome job - especially given the price you pay.

The gratuitous action shot is to prove that a fully rigid bike belongs in the hardcore group.

nice rahrider..!! tup

Second that.

What's the offset on your rigid? Gotta say, the Waltworks bikes are such works of art

I know plastic bikes don't get a lot of love here but I got a screaming deal on this ARC and couldn't pass up riding it for a season. 25.8lbs

Also, please roast me on the seat stash so I am shamed enough to remove it.

Idk what you're talking about. I love me a Yeti Arc. Plus look at all these rigid builds. Aggressive has many forms.

It's a 37mm offset (27.5" wheels)
Surprisingly stable.
The rigid HTA is somewhere around 64.5d

Any idea what your fork and frame each weigh? Is it a tapers or straight steerer? Ever try it as a mullet?
