I know! I looked at the same diagrams and wondered if my rocket surgery degrees would still be enough to do a tear down and rebuild! So many parts!
I took all this apart and put it back together on the Ripley, and that's just the eccentrics:
Such a fastidiously cool and well thought out design. Unfortunately also an answer to a question people stopped asking (how to package a non-boost 29er suspension package with front derailleurs etc.)
Baaah... wouldn't keep a Scottish raindrop outSuch a fastidiously cool and well thought out design.
True, like CNC'ed alloy goodness. Love how it looks but know it will probably get a dreaded crack one day.To be honest, I'm not a fan of all these machined chainstays/seatstays appearing on these boutique frame designs lately either. They're pointless mud-traps and still prone to cracking unless severly "overbuilt"/heavy. Maybe I've just seen too many similar designs in aircraft fatigue cracked through though...
Some models do have them now, but generally just little flaps - hope to see more in future also!I don't know why they don't design some kind of integrated rear wheel mudguard on frames now that could shield the BB area. Increasingly more suspension monkey motion seems to be happening around there now and is bound to get caked in crap in record time.
Interesting that they're developing it using the new Effigear box, which also has the same mount as the Pinion box! Could lead to a few more gearboxes sitting in frames.Didn’t really know where to put this but I’ve been following a small engineering company building a gearbox bike- Effigear with high pivot. The photos look amazing. Very keen to see the finished product. thought some might find this interesting
They seem to have a little more info on their posts on Instagram.Since having a read on Pinkbike about who's involved in that trinity_mtb project, I now have a lot more faith in it evolving into something worthwhile. This must just be a early proto.
Yeah, never quite got onto the 'gram. Hardly even use facebook anymore.They seem to have a little more info on their posts on Instagram.
They've got the Itrack guys on board as well who did the suspension on the Craftworks ENR.
