Reven

Finally done, now that I have seatstays (I apparently need to learn the “order WAY in advance” lesson over and over again when it comes to frame tubing…)

Quick rundown for the curious and bored. Ok, really, you guys are all just bored:
-71.5 HTA, 72 STA
-42cm chainstays (adjusts up to 44cm with the sliders)
-Non suspension corrected, for a 425mm/43mm rake rigid fork
-60cm toptube, 42cm seat tube
-12″ BB height
-S-bends, singlespeed specific

Pretty much an “updated for the modern world” version of Reven’s old suspension-corrected v-brake singlespeed from 7 or so years ago. Interestingly, the frame is under 4 pounds, which has to be close to a record for me for frames with sliders. Of course, there’s no paint on it yet (Reven is going to do something wild, I think).

And yes, the frame is sitting on a pretty beat up changing table that Sarah’s brother gave us. Nothing is cooler than posing your frames on an old changing table. I rock.
