    No. I googled 'salsa blackborow frameset' and started digging around the bike sites. Found it on Use their search with this search term and it will bring up the old 2016 version and the new one in small, medium and large. $1299.

      Of course I need an Extra-Large (not listed). Not ready to buy one right now anyway, but if I could get a group of friends interested in getting one and doing some detail planned out rides I'd be all over it as an Eagle pedal ride or with a Rohloff upgrade.

      Nice job!!! I really wanted one of them but no one had one that I could look at here in northeast USA. I love long wheelbase bikes.

      I'm looking at doing something similar. Which motor did you use? The BB has a 12mm through axle that is not compatible with the Bafang MG60. Any thoughts on using a DD front hub motor instead? That custom battery looks awesome. Care to share any specs/designs? Cheers.
