I picked up the ECR frame so as to build a 29er travel bike. At the moment it is rigged with Stans rims and 2.35 tyres. There's loads of tyre clearance, which is what I wanted from this 29er plus type of frame. I don't see the need for using the Knards just yet and prefer to stick with standard 29er stuff. As for the frame itself, well it's typical Surly quality. Very well made, has loads of fixtures and fittings and is very stable. No problems with the 80mm BB drop, so ignore the blogging controversy. All in all, I'd say a fab piece of kit.
