As we mentioned, since this is the prototype design, we will not be releasing too many specifics until we get closer to the production model. Many of you knew FTW was working on a new design and we couldn't wait to release some image!!
As far as the design intent and dims...hear it from the man himself
The proto frame is a small, the chainstays are 17.5" and the head angle is 65 where is sits now. That may change when I see where the fork rides in it's range. As with any design I do, I am looking for something in the overall performance....good weight balance, the right grip under braking and tracking through bumpy turns. One of my goals upon starting this bike was to build a bike that would be faster and easier to ride fast.
Right now, I expect to pull the head angle in about 1/2 to one degree from where it is now in the range of fork adjustment you can only go slacker...perhaps a degree steeper. The cool thing about the F-bomb is the tubing is still burly and the parts are not creepy thin.
It's so friggin stiff my Ridge is not stoked
Keep checking back, there will be more to come
