Martin – done

Here it is, still naked and freshly soaked to remove flux:

Now, geometry geekiness:
-69/73 head and seat angles, 93mm trail
-61.5 (24.2″) effective toptube and 66.9cm front center
-41cm (16.1″) actual and 40.5cm (15.9″) effective chainstays (sliders slide back to 43cm/17″ at full throw)
-30.5cm/12″ BB height
-Clearance for a nice fat rear tire and 1x or SS drivetrain
-For a 100mm tapered fork
-Curvy for function (seat tube/tire area) and form (toptube)
-Tubes are a mix of True Temper Verus HT, Deda (chainstays) and Nova (seatstays)
Note that the slider inserts shown are my dummy ones for the frame fixture and holding everything together while welding – Martin’s not planning to ride this thing fixed/brakeless as far as I know.
