#!markdown Couple of updates after speaking with Ian at Chromag (these will be added to the First Look article above): 1) Primer frame cost is $1600 CAD / $1250 US. 2) Headangle is 65 degrees - one slacker than the Rootdown BA. I had originally been told it was the same geo, but that was awhile ago. Incidentally, the 2017 Rootdown will also have a 65 degree HA. 3) BB height is based on beefy 29″ wheels like a Minion or Hans Dampf. 27.5+ can change things and of course it depends on tire volume, but generally you're going to end up slightly lower - to the tune of ~3/8″ (9.5mm). Therefore BB height can be between 12.25″ and 12.6″ (311 to 320mm). 4) The Primer is not made to be used with a front derailleur.
