I think I have built about 6 MTB frames so far this year out of 26 completed. That means that almost 1/4 of what I am building looks like this frame. In the last few years I have only building maybe 3-4 MTB frames in an entire year so this is a bit of a change. I do like going back to my roots-I used to pretty much build MTB frames all the time back in the '80's and '90's.
This one will be paired to a 120-130 travel fork and see duty in the Sierra foothills most likely.
