If you are having problems with the pivot bolts loosening on a regular basis, blue Loctite would be something I would seriously consider doing, there really is no down side to applying some the next chance you get.  Another alternative would be some teflon tape if you don't have any Loctite handy.

At 6'-2" (US measurements) I would have expected you to have a 21" frame but that decision is purely your personal preference.  If the size of the bike feels correct to you that's what is most important.

The 6Fattie has 150mm travel front, 135mm rear, which works well for the trails in my area.  I miss not having a lockout lever right up on the bars for long steep climbs.

I don't find my plus tires bad in the mud, just the opposite in that I feel I get more grip without sinking as far into the mud.  However, I can understand how you may like the skinnier tires that might dig in and have a more natural feel in a mud rut.

Looks like a very nice plus bike.  I wonder how it compares to my Stumpjumper 6Fattie.

In the pictures your seat looks really high compared to your bars, do you think that's normal for that frame?

Hello, the frame was received from CS. It is exactly per the design provided to Peter. Building up undergoing, will post additional pics later.

Looks beautiful, very professional graphics and paint work!

Recently SRAM released Eagle GX so I think the lower cost 1x12 is already here.

Which bushings?  If it's for the shock, you can measure the width you need and go to Jenson USA and order the correct one.  Another option is RWC http://www.enduroforkseals.com/id275.html and order needle bearings for the shock.

Looks nice!  Is there cable routing for a remote lockout for the rear shock?

E-bike, is like blasphemy to most MTB riders.

Looks like an improved version of my old IP-036 but the never fixed the cable routing for the rear shock.

The VYRO looks like some good engineering, the Suntour looks interesting as well, however, it came out at a time when everyone is moving to 1x setups and getting rid of the front derailleur altogether.

« on: June 12, 2017, 09:00:44 PM »
I had an IP-036 for nearly 3 years, put several hundred miles on the frame, sold it about a year ago, and it's still going strong with the second owner.  The frame only cost $700, not $3,000 like the big brand frames so for me, spending 1/4 the cost and still getting a decent frame that didn't give me any troubles was worth the effort.  Not saying there haven't been some buyers that haven't been 100% happy with the IP-036 but my experience was a positive one.  The only reason I sold my IP-036 and IP-056 was I wanted something different that, at the time, wasn't offered in a Chinese frameset.

It's probably really hard to say but a small frame on most bikes is usually for people that are pretty short.  Not knowing what size is right for you, a MED frame probably fits the majority of riders who are less than about 5'-9" tall.
