This one is about as current as I build. The seat tube has a port for a dropper post cable to be routed internally. The frame has the 'Syntace' rear dropout system-this is a first for me. It allows alignment of the rear wheel with a small cam built into the der. side dropout. A lot of other Nor-Cal builders have adopted this style of dropout.
The color is a really deep sparkle orange with gold flek. It does not completely show in a photo. When the sun hits it the effect is pretty amazing. This frame will see duty on the trails and fire roads of the Bay area. I'm anxious to hear a ride report from the owner.
