    Looks great, and great choice of stretch and rake.

    If only long bikes were legal in Australia… 🙁

    I have been eyeing this one on the Paughco site for a while. I wish I can get some feedback from someone who has already used it. Eg Paughco frames are generally reasonably good (perhaps you need a bit pf dressing of the welds at most) – but there are a few (unverified) stories going around of skew frames – NOT what you need on a long chop.

    BTW – 45deg is fine with 6 deg trees – ELSE IT DOES COME CLOSE TO BEING SWEDISH!

    The key is a straight stiff frame. The TC-B motor is a handy stressed member and the frame should be designed to make use of this verity (so perhaps a few light braces could be added to the frame above).

    The TC-B motor in a rigid/hardtail is a brilliant combo (please keep it a secret ;-)).
