    just stickers but gilles rides a frame with a higher bb.

    it sure would be nice if i got my frame back... or my money... or at least a clue of whats going on.

    What's going on with the frame then, Kevin?

    I'm only using a 2.35" tire on the rear, but I run my wheel slightly dished to the driveside, to get the wheel aligned between the brake cylinders, but I still have plenty of room to spare.

    Great frames...


    edit: Tire measurement, thanks Gurra.

    janson ment 2,35 if someone dident understand that. Coustellier seems to have slacked of a bit and their 'compagny' dosent go as well as they planned.

    i wish i knew. i stopped hearing anything and have not had any messages responded to since before worlds. maybe there is a legitimate reason but its looking more and more doubtful every day.

    Have u sent your frame away or something kevin?
    same for me when i orderd my coust. took about a week then i was told they dident have any frames left so michael awaited a delivery. then after that it took about 2-3 weeks before i did get it. dident bother me that much since i wasent going to build it up untill next spring. and i cant complain since i did get it for 500 euro including PP

    i dont mind waiting if i know im going to get something (back in this case) but just sitting here feeling ignored because i cant ever get any replies to any messages is getting old.
