Should be here in a few days.
Brakeside stay bracing. Larger diamater TT, DT, and chainstays. Chainstays and DT with 0.3mm thicker walls. Larger weld area and larger diamater to stiffent hings up and give less need for extra gussets. IMO, cleaner aesthetically.
Moderate headtube rings and gussets. The fork/headset I run, and how I run it will give me a 68.5 degree head angle with sag
Sliding drops, just purely for versatility. Rohloff or SS later? Play with my chainstay length? Sure!
All the parts from this are being swapped over.
This is getting the rigid/SS treatment. Sold my old SS after developing a taste for slacker geometry bikes, and not caring for its 71/71 angles. This'll much better suit.
Only changes to sizing and geometry from the old frame to the new: 0.5" longer TT and headtube; less spacer under my stem taht way. Fatty tire room. All standard sized stuff. I'd played with the idea of a 1.5" headtube, but decided to stick with the 1-1/8" setup
