Preview of things to come...

No, this isn't the 650B reference from this post. That's an even more secret project (and not mine either). As I had mentioned, the Rawland frames impressed me at Interbike this year, so much that I ordered a few frames. I decided on the disc brake Sogn model, the dSogn due to its ability to accept wheels shod with both 650B x 2.35 and a 700x45 tires. Sean's wheel size philosophy is all about a 700mm diameter and both these sizes are within millimeters of each other. After riding bikes with these sizes for the better part of the past year, I too concur. I plan on building up one of the dSogn frames and taking it for some "test" rides. More posts as the build comes together. For now, this is all you get.

The frames also impressed Mountain Bike Action's Richard Cunningham as in the recent issue of MBA, RC named Rawland on his 10 Best list for 2008's Interbike. Pretty cool for a publication steeped in full-suspension.

Clearly I need to stop in for a visit in about a week or two! ;)

It's VERY cool that you're stocking these frames. Dangerously so!
