Looks like a really long chain but very cool. Looks like the rig one would need to safely go 50mph.

Head tube needs to be 1&1/8" so you can throw any old downhill fork on it.🕵️‍♂️
Pity they went to all the trouble and missed that. 😩

Why let you run any old fork when they can sell you a frame specific fork?
If they made the frame for 1&1/8" fork, made the fork with 1&1/8" steerer, the people who want to keep it rigid can do so (and have a stiffer stronger steerer) and be happy, and those other people who want to slap an old Jnr T in there can do so too.
I guess it would cost an extra 13¢ or something and hurt profit margins. ☕:unsure:

Did not catch that. Think you can easily have some custom bearing cups made to bring it down to 1 1/8. That or chop that headtube off and weld whatever size you want in, it is a steel frame.

CrazyassDan, see if you can find that on aliexpress. If so you usually can buy just one unit.
