I remembered wrong - it is 69,5cm ct.

I have ridden it about 5-6 times since I got it - really like the feeling of the frame. Takes the bumps without being too bumpy. It annoys me with the bottle but I'm glad I choose this size compared too a medium. I have had a medium Scott Scale and I felt it was a little too long in the toptube but the small fits good.

Hi Sonny,

thanks. Didn't have anything to measure with today but there is about 3-4 mm and still a good chainline so no worries.

Hei !!, I envy your integrated seatpost. All the bike is for envy, congratulation. :thumbup:

A question: Aluminium bolt is resistant enought in the adapter? I am thinking to change the 4 Ti bolt of the Ultimate lever by aluminium, and people said me that is worst.

Thanks Jack - for the nice words.

I would be scared about using alu bolts on the brake levers - the only place I WOULDN'T use alu is at the stem and bolts you have to tighten pretty much.

aahhh, all right, because the alu bolts in stem makes me fear. So I can change my 4Ti bolts by alu. Are you make it any time, I can see that you have too much bikes experience. :D

I wouldn't fear it though I have never tried it - I think you would have to be a pretty unlucky dude if all the alu bolts in the stem would fail at the same time unless you ride some serious dh. But of course - using alu bolts needs higher attention to wear.
