Thought my STP was a good deal until I came across this today for $50. Was definitely skeptical, but met a normal, middle aged mom at a school where her kid was in a basketball tournament (watched the kids run inside before she met me). Said her ex bought the bike for her kid and her kid hasn't touched it in a couple years. Genuinely seemed like she just wanted to get rid of it.

Now that's a good find!

Was it a very long wait for the frame?

Torn on the company. That's a gorgeous bike for sure, and the quality seems vastly higher than with Dobermann, but hearing how many people didn't get their frames in a decent time frame was pretty sad to hear.

Sorry, don't mean to stain your bike. It's absolutely friggen sick and I honestly wish I had that thing!

I waited 2mo for my Ordnance. Not the same, but small company none the less. When its a 1 man show you wait, unless there's stock in house, which often there's not with small companies

Honestly I’m stoked on the quality of the work but I was very dissatisfied with his communication. For the last 4 months I was told my frame was shipping out week after week. After I finally got it he sent the wrong BB. Told me he sent me the correct BB and the spacers to go with it over a month ago. Still haven’t received them. Nor have I got an email back regarding the situation. I ended up have to get my own spacers machined in order to build the bike. It was very frustrating. Luckily I was recovering from a broken femur so I wasn’t able to ride during this time so it didn’t effect me really. However I was concerned for a couple months that I was never going to see this frame.

Sucks to hear that man. Such a sick build though, well done.

What fork are you running? looks like a non routine compression knob of sorts.

I had a custom frame (longer tt) built by Dobermann years back. It took months, then arrived with a dent.... They didn't do anything to help other than say they'd warranty it if it cracked.

In the article about Rheeder's new bike it says he's running 165psi in the fork. The manual says that 120psi is the max, has anyone on here run higher than 120psi in their Fox 831 for an extended period of time without any issues? I've got all 10 volume spacers in mine with 120psi but I've always wanted it to feel harder off the top.
