    I like it, some nice ideas on it with the bolt on cable guides and the anti chainsuck chainstay yoke... Steel ones will be class for the money (if comparable prices to On-One)

    :? ....as opposed to?
    You only need two tools: WD40 and Duck Tape.
    If it doesn't move and should, use the WD40.
    If it shouldn't move and does, use the tape.

    I think it has terrible paint job.

    Well I like what I can see and read about It so far, but price will be the deciding factor.
    It's not a ornament, so ride It

    If you look at the picture, notice where the IS mounts are for the rear calliper. They've been put on the chainstay, as opposed to the more usual seatstay mount. i assume this is to keep the calliper out of harm's way, or to bring some extra weight forward to help with ballance. it can't make that much of a difference though, surely?

    Dont get 'em on many steel frames (if any) and dont see the need with Ti, just bend 'em back. And if its really FUBAR'd then weld another dropout into it.

    I can see that with a cheaper (and maybe stronger) steel frame but it would worry me on a more expensive ti frame. It's enough to put me off. Otherwise i quite like the look of it.

  • Looks good IMO will have to wait and se how the whole line transpires. It would be good if there were also some forks and other bits too. Not sure about the "Shedfire" name will have to see how that turns into a brand as well.
