OK I'm gonna ask some really embarassing questions:

1. That's like a fixie right? With an mtb frame?
2. What is that bike FOR?
3. What is a 16th cog?

:oops: :oops: :oops:

Is the medium a 17" or 19" frame?

From my limited exp with Spesh MTBs -
17inch is regarded as a Medium (I'm 179cm tall & ride a Medium).
The Carve has an eccentic bottom bracket (crank axial) used to adjust the chain tension, as the rear wheel sits in a regular vertical dropout. The wheel is a regular multi-speed hub which normally runs a cassette, but in this set up has spaces & just 1x rear cog (16tooth?).
Not a fixie.
(Although in the US a bloke sells rear cogs that bolt onto the hub in place of the rear brake rotor, for those lunatics who want a fix/free, flip-flop, on a disk braked MTB - you lose a rear brake, but gain a mountain of cred out on the trail ).


Apparently these Carve eccentric BB frames are sort after because they offer riders the option to go single speed or multispeed (and single speed in anything is cool).

woah, so that'd be a single gear, front brake only, no suspension bike .... on a trail :shock:

That is total madness :lol: What the hell happens on a descent :shock: :shock: :shock:

I have enough trouble controlling my duallie :roll:

it is a 17" frame

I used it for commuting for a short period of time.

It can easily be turned into a SS mountain bike just by changing the tyres.
You could also turn it into a gear bike if you wished. You would just have to get a new hanger & run full length cable housing, cable tied to the frame.

Interesting ride, does the carbon fork offer much dampening?

I would say no, it can still beat you up.
But it is a stiff & direct front end.

Would be a different style of riding than I'm use to, I'm interested. Would you take $750?

Any chance this is still available? If so, would you be willing to ship to North America, specifically Canada?


Thanks,
