Just finished up my 2017 Void build. First bike from scratch and I'm pretty happy with the outcome. Let me know what you guys think and I can provide specs if anyone cares. Also for all you guys running rear brakes on frames with no cable management, how do you secure the hose/cable? I just wrapped it a few times for now and put a cable tie up by the steerer tube. Beer

on a black frame just use electrical tape.

Electrical tape leaves the absolute worst residue.

These are great, i'm sure they're available at your local office goods store. they have all kinds of colours and they don't leave residue.

Hey guys, first post here. I'm thinking about swapping out my frame to a steel one, simply because I can never be satisfied with the perfect bike. Anyone have any avenues I could research into for a street oriented frame?

Do you want a tapered or straight steertube?

Perfect, good thinking. Electrical tape residue can't be any worse than the residue left from removing all the decals. A little goo gone/alcohol and bam.

Are the void decals that come on the frame stickers you can take off or you paint the frame?

They are just stickers. Very annoying stickers. I used a heat gun to warm the glue then soaked them in goo gone for a few minutes before going at them with a rag. All in all pretty painless.

I'd say look at Ordnance Bikes, but their site is down for upgrades. You might try connecting through Book face..

The street frame they build is amazing in every regard.. you can look through my profile pics to see mine if you like (the raw one)

I think Thomas would be stoked if he hasn't already sent one to NZ..

Tapered is supposed to be stronger
