Last second gift? I’ve got an NOS frame for ya!

I built this bike almost 3 years ago as part of a promotion for the Denver Bike Cafe (owned by my good friend Pete). It basically got hung on the wall as bicycle-themed artwork, but now it’s time for it to find a home and get ridden. It’s a nice all-arounder hardtail 29er from before the era of rear through axles, plus bikes, and dropper posts (so a 27.2 seatpost, QR rear dropouts, etc). It is modern geometry (short stays, slackish HTA) but nothing crazy like I’ve been doing lately with the Ultimate Warrior stuff.
I’m asking $700, full build kit is of course available as well (email me with questions). 
-24″ (61cm) effective toptube
-18″ (center to top) seat tube for 27.2 post
-42cm/16.5″ chainstays, clearance for up to a 2.4″ tire with no problem
-12″/12.2″/12.4″ BB height with 80/100/120mm travel forks.
-70.5/69.5/68.5 head tube angle with 80/100/120mm fork.
-74/73/72 seat tube angle with 80/100/120mm fork.
-118mm head tube.
-For a tapered steerer fork (I recommend 100mm but 80 or 120 will also work) and a 44mm headset (ie King I7).
-Single chainring/1x ONLY.
-S-bend chainstays and seatstays
-Full length housing for both brake and derailleur routed under the toptube.
This is sort of a medium/large frame that would generally fit someone around 5’10” to 6′ tall. It’s usable for anything from light XC/racing (with a shorter travel fork) to almost freeride-hardtail kinda stuff. A nice all-around hardtail for most all-around riders (under 180#, please).
Please email me with questions.
