I hinted at it before but the proverbial cat is out of the bag, Volume has made a prototype 26″ specific frame and since I got really lucky a few years ago I get to test it out!
Apparently I have one of these in the mail…
It’s really a huge leap.. forward? Well, it’s a huge leap in one specific direction, we don’t yet know what ‘forward’ really is yet. What I think is most valuable about this frame is that it may indeed be ‘too far’, perhaps finally we have jumped the shark and wound up with something both awkward for tricks and shitty to ride. Who knows! It’s in the mail!
We can’t truely know what is best without first exploring the extremes, otherwise we are left with questions and uncertainties. So I welcome this frame, for it’s high bottom bracket and beefy 14mm axles and I approach the low top tube with uncertainty, I have literally no idea what is going to happen! Brian already told me he has several changes in mind and the top tube will probably come up a few inches, but what a brave step into the unknown!
