Looks like a fun bike. Anyone thinking of preordering?

Why the funky rear drop outs and cog?

Is that a function of the single speed combined with the disc?

They're sliding dropouts to allow running it geared. You can swap out the sliding end for one with a derailleur hanger.

And I do think that they allow you to keep alignment with the disc brake while tensioning the chain.

The vertical drop-out also makes wheel removal/installation easier if fendered.

Thanks. Too bad they didn't include headtube length and/or stack and reach.

I am interested in pre-ordering and was waiting on geomtry and then was disappointed that they didn't have headtube length or BB drop.

Or that its intended for hipsters, who are more concerned about image than fit.

I don't know why they didn't include those numbers- they sent me them in an email. Didn't realize the chart on the site was incomplete.

Geo attached.

65 bb drop across the board. Headtube length is there too.

I checked this bike out at the show last month, and it was really well done. Looks better in person that the pictures, and the pictures look darn good!

I like it. Looks similar to the Civilians.

I like it, and i'd certainly love to own one. No preorders though. I'll wait to read some reviews of the actual bike. By then, one of you will have bought one, upgraded a bunch of parts, and then decided you really should have the same thing made by a custom builder...figure I'll pay $750, maybe a grand with Record 11 parts and wet brakes. :p
