What does „Raw“ mean for the frames? Raw frames, buildkits or complete bikes come with a raw aluminium finish. That means the frame is neither anodized, nor painted, nor powder coated. It’s just pure aluminium. But, in order to make it look pure aluminium, it is brushed. That means the texture is slightly brushed, because the dust from welding has been removed. Are there still frames from the first batch available? Please refer to the Alutech website. There you can check the availability of every version, that means which color and which framesize is still available within the first production run that ships in April 2016. When can delivery of the frames be expected? The frames are due for shipment from Germany in April 2016. When are complete bikes and build-kits going to be delivered? Build-kits will be shipped alongside the frames in April 2016. Complete Bikes will be assembled in Germany from April on and shipped to customers, ready to ride. Can I build my ICB2.0 as a 650b+, B+ or 27,5+ Bike? Generally: That's difficult, as the bike was designed as a 650b-Bike. But apparently for many people tires don't need to be very wide in order to call them "Plus". So if your definition of "Plus" fits within 75 mm width and diameter of 732 mm, you could give it a go. However, these are the absolute maximum values - you should allow mud clearance! We suggest a maximum width of 64 mm! and a diameter of 720 mm in order to keep things rolling. Service: A WTB Trailblazer 27.5 x 2.8" on a 35 mm rim comes to 66 mm width and 723 mm diameter. That'll leave you with 4.5 mm clearance on either side of the tire. Which framesize should I get? That's a tricky one, and one of the favorites. We suggest you to check how long your seattube should be in order to make room for a dropper post and to be long enough for your legs. If multiple options seem to fit, the length of the bike should make the call. We are fans of short stems, and if you're too, you might want to opt for the bigger frame size. Why is there no bottle cage mount? Short answer: Because, compared to an efficient and supple rear suspension, that mount scored low on the requirement list, when we had a public vote. So we designed the suspension first instead of around a water bottle. If you need to get one, it might be an idea to put one of these on the top tube. Or fit a really small bottle within the front triangle. A backpack is the easiest solution, though Have more? Just type them in the reply section below and we'll try to help.
