    That looks nice. Reminds me of the new SHAN N5.

    Excellent, pretty keen to see her built up. Lovin' the resurgence of steel dual suspension bikes.

    Me to they post every thu so next week sometime hopefully.

    Resurgence for sure also like starling swoop , but waiting time is next level
    most likely the weight , or lack there of ,frame weight is close to liteville which is pretty cool

    Interested to hear your thoughts on it when it's built up. 170mm should make it a beast. Are they rated for that length fork?
    Am a fan of Cotic bikes. Had a BFe.
    I like this frame, looks nice.
    And steel is a winner.
