steel 29er frame for a local

 there's a bit more to this frame than normal. Since it is equipped with Paragon slider dropouts there is the ability to not only run the bike with or without derailleurs but also to change the rear axle spec. There are inserts for 142x12 thru-axle that bolt right on just like the 135 Q.R. inserts pictured here.
There's bit of  weight penalty with this hardware but it is almost like having two bikes in one.
The paint scheme has been done before on similar frame and that is where the customer got the idea for this panel and stripe option. It would be funny for the two bikes to meet on a trail somewhere......
