Centerline: 2.1
CS: 13.5-14.0

Hmmm interesting, but not sure if i like it. Kinda cool the top tubes are further away from the seattube than the recent TEN and subrosa FLATT, but at the same time, unless your doing framestands...not much point in that.

I saw one of these, maybe a custom they built for a guy in Pa. years ago...or something close to it.

Looks like exterior machining,....I agree with Malo saying that Internal butting is better.

I don't see any extorier machining. About the seat tube area, I still ride a frame with a platform. And I pinch that spot with my Knees on cliffhangers and two footed forward deaths. It locks real good. But that's how I learnt them. I hope the back end isn't super short.

Probably the millscale that comes on tubing. It looks like they remove it where they weld.

Hm yea i guess you could lock cliffhangers with that platform-like area. I wouldnt know, i never could do those lol.

not a fan of the pinch, just my opinion though. If it is in fact a new dtt frame, i do like that it seems to be coming back, even if just for a little while.
