you will be fine with the 19inch tt. From what I see 19 is on the bigger side for flat frames. Btw I am 6'1 and ride the opsis just fine even with 0 offset bars and forks.

OKAY
Quick question which is pretty much Opsis related.
It has a 19" toptube, and that is pretty smallll
im 5'10", still growing, and thinking about ordering the opsis, is it too small?
sorry, just didnt want to make a new thread for this Q.

19"tt is on the larger side of things when it comes to flatland frames...

im 5'8" and growing and id like a frame around 18.5 inches maybe shorter.  :beer: :beer:

definitely does. Tektro 907/908 brakes and tektro levers, and a gyro. Go for it, I've had mine and it's been great so far.

edit: If you can, see if you could wait until the dates that Dans says they'll have the bike in stock, cause flatlandfuel may get it in before or at the same time... and giving pat all the business we can will only help in the long run.

Yeah, I guess it's availability (?) but flatlandfuel has removed the opsis from their web page and dans has it april 22 silver, may 8ish green.  just fyi.  At least it'll keep me responsible and riding my turd for a few more weeks.  Come may I have some thinking to do... green or silver... hmmmmm?

Yea, I saw that on Dan's, but FLF usually just puts it up once they're available, instead of posting something they don't have in stock...

I just looked on dans comp today and I'v been keeping track on the DK Opsis for about a month and i noticed that they put the availabilty date back to 5/7/09 when it was 4/22/09 for the silver matallic I was just wondering for what reason and if people would still recomend this bike and if theres any new news on it.  I was planing on ordering it from danscomp this weekend

I got it last night and finally put it together...

i had a khe reverse freecoaster wheel , some g-sport plegs, and a demolition seat and seatpost lying around, so i put those on and switched in some khe folding tires and an animal lite sprocket. went street riding today so I haven't gotten to ride it yet, but i am going riding tomorrow, i'll let you know how it goes!

The latest from DK is they expect a small batch of Opsis bikes on May 21st with another batch in late June. Flatlandfuel is taking orders for them now if you want to make sure you get one from this month's batch. Mention Global-Flat and any pre-orders will receive a free Ground Rules DVD with their bike. Contact me if you have any questions.
