    Travel (front) 130-160 mm
    Axle to crown Height 545 mm +/- 15
    Tire clearance 75 mm (recommended: up to 63 mm)

    Shock-Hardware - / 22.2 x 8

    Here's a pretty fancy build by MTB-News.de editor @Tobias@Tobias - what will your ICB look like?

  3. I'll build a green ICB 2.0 frame with 90% of the components that are actually on my Kona Explosif:

    [​IMG]

    - 150mm Fox Factory fork (2014, planning to upgrade to 2016 internals or to a 36 if I'll find a good deal)
    - Custom wheelset with DRC Bighorn rims/Novatec hubs/orange nipples :) (a little battered, a new, sturdier/heavyer Stans Flow EX wheelset is coming, I'll try both and take a decision which one to keep on the ICB)
    - 1x10 Shimano SLX with 29/42 ZetaBike cassette expander/Oneup RadR rear derailleur cage
    - Crank Brothers mallet 2 pedals
    - ODI EX750 handlebar (750/790 vario size)
    - Funn Funnduro stem (60mm but planning to buy the 45mm version or a 50mm from another brand)
    - KS Dropzone 125mm dropper post (will upgrade to a KS Lev 150mm)
    - Chromag Trailmaster leather saddle
    - Chromag grips
    - Brakes I just had a gread deal for a new Magura Mt5 set so I'll keep my SLX on the Explosif

    Most of my parts are with an orange accent that should match nicely the green frame.

    @nuts@nuts : Very good idea to "outsource" the english threat!:daumen:

    @ridemore@ridemore: Green was absolutely the right decision!
     
  5. Yep, I just hope that the real green is close to this "yellowish" one:

    [​IMG]

    and not to this one, too dark and intense for my tastes:

    My experience with anodized frames is, that the Color changes with the Color of the sunlight. It is awesome, if the frame looks warmer in the evening, with the last sunlight.

    Regards...

    Hannes usually does a good job capturing real colors. So i think these pictures give a good impression:

    Schöner Laufradsatz, nur a bisl teuer und unerschwinglich für mein ICB :hüpf:
    Da muss ich wohl leider meine Hope Pro 2 Laufräder weiterfahren :winken:
