Didn't want to say it, but jgmu may be right. I see the huge gusset and that's comforting; still, it may benefit from a Rocky Mountain 2XS ladder-frame brace:

Rocky Mountain 2XS was the carbon kevlar version of their Pipeline freeride bike

Thanks!

Not many kids have a custom frame! Just be sure a water bottle fits inside the main triangle or you'll never hear the end of it - or maybe that's just the Pinkbike comments Wink

Thanks it won't have a bottle holder she had a camel back I prefer low standover????

How long will the down tube last having to react the shock load which is acting near on perpendicular in the middle of an unsupported tube, OR have you massively overbuilt it with huge wall thickness which means it’s overly heavy?

Good work getting the frame together Dan, but to me that design just shouts compliance and/or failure... I’d like to be proven wrong though... Smile

That's mine mail concern as well. It's 1 mm wall thickness tubing there but a really long shock mount. And only way I managed too get a singlepivot to be progressive. Holds so far only time will tell but there are some similar frames or there that don't have a hole down tube????

Just a joke. Pinkbike is famous for vigorously complaining whenever a bike is introduced without space for a water bottle.

I've excluded bikes from my shopping list over the lack of a bottle mount, so I'm only half joking!

I never use them. Only on gravel bikes. But i could easly fit one on that frame.

Just finished my latest build, 130mm travel 29er hardtail.

25% Sag Geometry

homemade 29er steel hardtail
Just needs cable routing sorting and then ready for paint

No way, that’s almost exactly the project i’m working on right now, a 130mm hardtail! Yours looks absolutely gorgeous!

we are getting closer...

Really long time since the last update. The whole thing takes FOREVER. I don't even want to know how many hours i spent working on this frame. but it is turning out awesome. I'm actually a little further ahead than on this picture. All the joints are wrapped and the frame is structurally finished. Working on the ports of the internal cable routing now.

Well, actually I'm working on a couple of snowboards now. Frame has to wait a little bit...

Forks around 120mm
Crankset

Thanks v much
