i really dislike the hello dave and big dog frames for their bent seatstays Frown i know they're nice for compliance and chainstay mounted brake calipers, but still... bent seatstays always look like an error in frame building to me. othdr than that, this bike is an amazing build - the part are unfortunately wasted to this ugly frame.

Them bent chainstays are a f*cking pain in the ass.. can’t use a two pot calliper with a 180mm rotor, but can use it with a 160mm rotor. (Hello Dave)..

There is no compliance. It's a triangle, in order for any "compliance" to come from any seatstay you need something else in the triangle to flex, the seattube isn't flexing and the chainstays aren't going to flex.

Weren't the Hello Dave's the rebadged / reclaimed Sick frames? Them clowns couldn't design for shit so no surprise there's issues like that.

How do you figure the frame is 100% rigid, there is ALWAYS flex, how much varies.

This statement is fundamentally wrong.

Probably thinks that since bridges are built with triangle they don't flex either.

Everything is flexible...

The shape of the seatstays definitely offers more vertical compliance. It's not their invention, a lot of builders used this design detail before them, look at Jones frames as an example... but if you can't use two calipers with 180mm rotors, that's a bummer!....

According to guy Kestevens ride review the v3 frames will be able to run at least a 180mm rotor.
