I'm sold on this, given the answers will be written instead of packed into some 5-minute-plus video spiked with 35 seconds of valuable advice.

We bought the tubes all over the place, wherever we would get them :D

Welding was done by a professional welder, including heat treatment afterwards. Because yeah, you need to know what you are doing, when welding aluminium, and i dont sideways

That's amazing. The bike just looks ridiculously clean and tidy for a home project. Who welded it? As I understand it, welding aluminum frame tubes is significantly harder than welding steel. I guess the biggest benefit is that machine time goes way down for making all the bits and bobs out of aluminum...more

High pivot 29er with a gear box. Holy shit.

Yeah i know i wrote a novel haha... I agree that they are the same but different I think there is so much more to it than engine mass, a hecking rear moto wheel ready to ride weighs as much or more than a MTB, tires are like 10-14lbs. They just weigh ... more »

Thx! smile

It's the 6-Gear Version with 295% range. Pretty much the same Range as a SRAM DH 7-Gear Setup.

The reason for the Gearbox was first of all less unsprung weight on the rear wheel (about 450g),
which makes the suspension more active and supple / plush. Which is the whole point of a DH-Bike suspension...more

Hostility is the result of my lack of patience for dumb stuff and how this industry will promote it nonstop and never mention that it is not necessary. Nobody wants to upset their buddies in man buns. I will and don't GAF.
