    Hey, ill either be getting a bounce or a pure shortly and was wondering what size bottom bracket youd suggest.
    im thinking 118, pretty standard right?

    also, any prefernce on the frame choice between the two and why? theyre pretty similar in terms of WB, HA, CS....
    i like the pure cause of the straight seat tube, but its also got the higher price tag...
    would i even be able to get any amount of useful seat post into the bounce with the bent seat tube?

    also, anybody know of the post size in these frames?
    thanks'

    Edit: Forgot to add that ill be running Middleburn ISIS cranks with a 22t ring.

    As per the advice of Andrew, I'm getting a 128 spindle for mine. He runs a 118 and had to grind down his cranks for it to work.

    My frame is shiny and long. :wavey:

    And the pure is a 27.2

    wb for the bounce is 1055, pure is 1085, thats a pretty big diff.

    i don't know, but im guessing the bounce is more of a spanish/japanese type of frame( bouncy) like the zoo boa. Personally I hate the bounce. The pure is a stiffer bike. and maybe stronger?
