Nice. I'd love a FTW or Spooky crit bike. What are the TT/ST measurements?

Frame and weldments look great.

I toyed with the idea of welding my own alloy frame being that I do all kinds of custom fabrication (for cars).
Cant wait to see the buildup.

That frame is not a big one. This will let the frame look more special as it already do alone as it is so "fat"

The singelchainring works totally fine for me but it always depends on where you are riding and how you are riding i guess.
