    I need help only for those who own a Coustellier frame.

    I need to know exactly what size it is if you were to measure a vertical line from bb to top tube....please measure the distance from centre of BB to bottom of imaginary top tube.

    I also need the lengths of each seat tube from weld area to weld area.

    not really...

    I am not trying to make a Coust frame I am making my own custom frame but I like the standover height of the Coust frame....that is Y I was asking for the vertical line from center BB to bottom of top tube if it were to extend further down.

    The only person I know with a Coust is in France for the next two weeks.
    I own a Crescent Ilions & the standover height is alright but I want a lot smaller but don't want to small.....My Crescent is currently at 11"..My buddy with the Koxx 1100 has alot of standover height but I think the Coust frame is still about 2-3" shorter.

    Kool

    Thanx alot....I knew there had to be someone out there to help me out...everyone seems so hush hush about everything...I'm just trying to get some input on making a frame & wanted a few specs from certain frames to finish building my own frame to my specs & not to some pro's specs.

    I currently ride a Crescent & it has a bout a 1030-1035 wheelbase w/a 73degree headtube but I wanted sumthin a little longer but w/o making the reach to strectched out for ma as I'm only 5'6"...so I thought something around 1050 w/ 71.5 degrees should not be to bad.

    I thought the Coust was somewhere around 6" & the Koxx 1100 around 8" ...Do u think that 6" is to short for a custom rig?? Like stress wise?? will it be solid enough or do u think that is why the coust frame stuck in the 3 seat tubes or do u think that was merely for show purposes?

    my guess is it will be steel, the seat tube height wont matter unless its sub 3" in that case

    3 seat tubes is for stiffness... they make it the stiffest frame ever made.

    Apart from this:

    Same geometry (exactly) apart from a 5mm shorter rear end... and weighs a pound more. Stiff as a badger.

    Ah right, well, there is. Half the price as well. Without the shite graphics, luckily... think i'll be stripping mine...

    Hmm, maybe the badgers over there are different to here? :dunno:

    Hailing from the badger state I can tell you that badgers are infact, wobbly.

    if it weighs a pound more, then that shit has got to be brutally stifferness than the coust even. fuck
