- 44mm Head tube: use a zero stack headset or run an 'XX44' type headset for taper steerer fork. Larger dia. head tube means more weld area = stronger/stiffer front end.
- 'Bulge Butted', Cro.Mo. seat tube: Toughens and adds some lateral stiffness to the rear end.
- Slotted disc mount: Gives adjustment when using horizontal swopouts and single speed and makes getting the wheel out easier!
- New 'MetGrey' metallic colour + revised artwork for all frames.
