jezley h christ, moar on that bike. much more. i hope you have no intentions of painting it.
unless you have tubes in those tires though you may be taking a big risk. Conti's are not compatible with hookless rims and the WAO guys have experienced it and mentioned it explicitly.
but nevermind that, what a stunner, must know more.
It will likely get some rattle can paint. That or I need to spend a couple hundred hours properly filing and sanding my fillet brazing smooth and clean. As they say "grinder and paint make me the welder I ain't". This is only my fourth frame and still lots of improvement needed in my brazing.
327mm bb height.
160mm fork. 144mm rear travel.
Suspension is progressive with a LR from 3.05 to 1.78.
Shock is a Super Deluxe 230x65.
Running tubes with the Conti's and WAO rims.
I designed it with high anti-squat so it will climb well without needing any help from the compression switch on the shock. With the low bb I'll likely use the middle setting on the shock for technical climbing just to keep it higher in travel, but the first climb up No Quarter says it didn't needed it for any reason other than pedal strikes.
What more do you want to know?
Enter drool emoticon here...that is an awesome frame. Can't wait to see it when it's all done!
