Video: Designing & Manufacturing a Bike Frame
@shirk-007: Have to say. That is DOPE. Thats honestly amazing really. But isnt the geometry a bit extreme?

Bike Check: Andrea Garella's Custom-Made Ancillotti Scarab 29er - Superenduro 2018
@adespotoskyli: What i meant was that because the Ancilotti is shiny the welds would be more noticable. I know that Rose do make really good frames indeed. And the welds are spot on. But its also has way fewer welds to begin with. The Ancilotti frame is the complete opposite. It has welds basically everywhere. (i mean look at the frikin seat tube) That makes it look a bit messy but the welds themselves dont look bad. There are just a lot of them. There are all sorts of bits and pieces welded to it.

Bike Check: Andrea Garella's Custom-Made Ancillotti Scarab 29er - Superenduro 2018
@adespotoskyli: Do take in mind that this frame is aluminium which is hard to weld. The welds are also more noticable due to the polished surface of the frame (and the fact that there are a lot of welds on the frame in the first place). If they had painted the frame for instance the welds wouldnt be such an eye catcher. But thats the charm in this case. But as far as i can tell ancilotti does have welding experience. I dont expect these things to crack or shear off so easily.

Burning Question: Is Super Boost 157 Spacing Going to Become the New Standard?
@fracasnoxteam: That and there are still companies that will make you wheels. (Hope still makes them with dropouts i believe)

Burning Question: Is Super Boost 157 Spacing Going to Become the New Standard?
Know what. Im going to tell yall a secret. Ive got this full susser from 2016 lying around with 148 spacin yea. But quess what. The rear end is so frikin wide my shoes (the usual five 10's) could hit the seatstays when clipped in (Thats with shimano pedals actually). Its not quite too wide but this stupid 157 will be. so prepare to wrap those chainstay protectors around every fckn tube on the frame or ittl look like crap in 2 rides. Stupid nonsense. Thats a spacing for downhill bikes anyways. If you go do downhill stuff (like the things you see on wordcups) on a trailbike with 120-140mm travel youre an idiot. And you cant blame the bike when natural selection kicks in. There ive said it. My first keyboard rage on Pinkbike.
