Looks awesome so far

    I haven't built this up yet, so this 'review'" is obviously preliminary, but this frame looks better in person than it does on the website photos. It just has the look of a quality bike - everything is finished nicely, and I have to say the lack of graphics looks pretty awesome. It just feels like a nice bike. The folks at realcyclist, particularly Zach, have been very helpful in putting together the rest of the parts I needed for this. I can't wait to ride this.

    great bike

      the new cx rig is built and ready to roll...although the weather here in Ohio has not cooperated too much lately...even for the cx freaks amongst us. I am very happy with this frame!...probably the best bang for the buck I have ever spent, for those of you that did not pull the trigger on the sale price, you can regret it fo' sure...built it up with some Rival from another bike and BAM, sweet rig. I had intended for this to be a pit bike, but it came out as light or maybe lighter than my current race bike...I just added the green bar tape today, and I think it looks great!!!...

      great bike

      I bought this frame and fork from bonktown for $499. It rides fantastic, and when I stand and stomp it responds well.

      I moved all my road components over to this frame. My only beef is that for some reason it doesn't shift as well as my road frame. I've got a great mechanic that has built bikes for me in the past and he thought the rear derailer hanger was not right. The shifters and derailers are SRAM Red and I've never had any issue with them in the past.

      I'd like to know if anyone has had the same problem as myself, so let me know.

      Over all I'm not sorry I bought this frame at 499 and now I see it for 450, you just can't beat the price for a carbon frame, and like I said before, It rides just fine. Just know, it's not a Cannondale Super X.

      Is this frame fit for the tittle of a fixie? I have a fixie and needed a new frame.

      This will only work as a fixie if your rear hub is an eccentric like the White Industries ENO. Otherwise, the vertical dropouts will make it impossible to adjust the chain tension and you'll end up with a loose chain--very very dangerous on a fixed-gear.

      Does this have a tapered steerer? Also, is the bracket BB30?

      What size headset does this take? Is this just a standard 1 1/8" internal or integrated?

      Any recomendations for a headset specifically?


      I just went through this myself. Assuming I got it right (with the help of the folks here - worth calling to figure this stuff out) it's a 1 1/8 integrated headset. The complete build they offered for awhile was specced with an FSA Orbit IS-2. I just got a Cane Creek 110 integrated tall rise (110.IS41 Tall Cover Complete) - the cheaper Cane Creek 40 integrated looks like it would work too - (40.IS38 Tall Cover Complete). Ritchey WCS Logic Zero Carbon Fiber Drop-In Headset available here should work too. Get a problem solvers cantilever cable hanger too (or at least that's what I was told). Hope this info isn't wrong or useless. Wouldn't be the first time.

      I just picked one of these up and am having a hard time finding any intel on Cutter. Where are they located? Where are the frames made? Any info would be cool.
