    Angry Ape 29er frames Down Under

    I think I just found my new frame. These look the business!

    Very nice. The tubing is joined perfectly. $1500 for a frame seems a bit much but I guess they are producing rather limited numbers of these.

    Very limited. But gourmet! Great attention to details, if you read the blurbs about his other frames and ideas.

    Can someone explain its drivetrain to me.

    I see two front chainrings and no chain tensioner and vertical drop outs.

    Eccentric BB, you just move the chain to the smaller ring and then adjust the BB to take slack out of the chain.

    ^^^ I know it's because of the rear disc, but that sucks for a $1500 frame designed for ss.

    They could've done it with a sliding dropout. I think that might be the best way to do a singlespeed where you need to have disc brakes.

    And those frames look really good. Really really good.

    almost...it has a Dos Eno freewheel in the back.
    move the chain to small chainwheel and large cog configuration.

    Those dropouts are awesome. I am a huge EBB advocate, so this bike tickles me.

    Is it fillet brazed, or are the welds just ground down? Either way it makes for a pretty bike.

    If it were me, I would want a DR hanger on there just in case or a bolt on hanger. Looks like the builder is into custom fabrications which is cool in my book.
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    I thought they named it "Angry ****" at first. Inappropriate.

    But congrats on a seriously good-looking bike. That's a cool crankset on the photo model. I haven't been keeping up with Race Face much; is that this year's singlespeed Deus XC? And is that chainring stock?

    I have to agree. I can appreciate the workmanship, but Ill never own another EBB bike again, unless its a tandem.

    The more I look at these the more I want a hardtail 29er SS with discs and a rocking front fork.

    EBB's scare me. Too many moving parts. And if something fails, it is expensive to fix.

    Sliding drops are a good solution, but I've heard that many designs can twist when the brake is applied hard.

    I'll just stick to track ends and readjust my brake when I need to swap gears. Is there any way to mount the caliper in front of the rotor so that the wheel can be more easily slid out the back?

    Bike looks good though. For $1500, they could probably give it a better paint job.
