What is the head tube angle for the Typhoon ? and for the Storm ?

Still no 12 mm x 142 mm thru axle option for a rear swing arm ( 73 mm wide BB ) in order to accept a 27.5 x 2.5 tire
or a 29 er thru axle wheel that has a 2.5 or 2.8 inch wide tire .... Sad !

Looks like I will be missing out again this year for one of your frames .

Until you make this ...
Storm Frame with 73 mm wide BB , frame/swing arm able to accept Cyclone/GNG 2019 3000 watt mid drive motor , with swing arm with the ability to accept 12 mm x 142 or 12 mm x 148 thru axle hubs , with 27.5 rims 2.5 inch wide tires or 29 er up to 2.8 inch tires.

When buying a Frame to build up into either a non e-bike or an e-bike the most common components for the last few years
for Mountain Bikes are ...

For Most Forks , Thru Axle 15 mm by 100 mm , or 15 mm by 110 mm boost . ( Triple crown forks like the Fox 40/R.S. Boxxer /etc are 20 mm x 110 mm)

For the Rear Triangle or Swing arm ...

12 mm x 142/143 or 12 mm x 148/152 mm . Thru Axle ( except for fat bikes )

and threaded BSA Bottom Bracket Shells that are 73 mm wide . ( except for fat bikes )

along with the fact that most wheel sets these days are 27.5 inch or 29 er wheels .

SO ...

When building up a Frame the better frame for the consumer to buy , and the frame most likely to be build up with current technology
Needs
to have the rear Swing Arm that can accept 12 mm x 143 mm axle or 12 mm x 148 mm axle , etc.

Now the way to make your frames up to current standards is to ...

Lengthen the Swing Arm enough to allow a 29 er wheel that is 2.8-3 inches wide . ( 73 mm BB Shell )
and
To make the bolt on axle mounts that you currently have on your swing arms different thickness so that the buyer can choose which bolt on axle mounts he/she orders with the frame .

Arthur you really , Need , to come to the US ( California ) and meet with me to design a better frame !

Thank you for feedback :) I was in CA in September :) Sold 5 Typhoons.
We provide BB with the frames, so you dont need to buy them.

You should have contacted me and come to visit , I also would have showed you local riding locations.

Anyway it is not the BB that is needed , it is a 73 mm wide BB threaded BSA shell on the swing arm . many people will want
to put a more modern crankset on the bike. for MTB's that is 73 mm wide for standard/plus and 100 mm as you know for fat bikes.

Also bikes are now 64.5 degree head angles , and getting slacker each year or two years , so I expect to see 64.0 or even 63.5 head tube angles soon for the faster bikes ( down hill and enduro/all mountain ) so you can redesign that as well to the new Storm when you make it/re design it. do 64.0 or even slacker .

I would like to have one of your Storm frames but need to put on the cyclone mid drive ( GNG 2019 3000 watt )
https://www.gngebike.com/gng-2019-3000w
and
27.5 wheel with 2.5 inch or 2.8 inch tire . I have thru axle rear wheels now . 12mm x 142 mm.
and
I can say now that I have experienced my latest e-bike at faster speeds going downhill , a very slack head tube angle , 64 degree or even a little slacker . 63.5 or 63 perhaps.

I mentioned updates last spring. The eBay enduro frames are $250 shipped now on eBay if you look hard. Shipping included from a USA seller. My point is prices are dropping for that so so heavy frame 25kg. And less shipping time too. To stay competitive the updates must come. Wider frames and bottom brackets allow wider motors like the qs motors 1000-2000-3000 watt mid motors. Less motor cantilever to one side and maybe fit within the cranks also. Add a few inches to the swingarm to alow for a motor would be awesome. It’s the updates or with big tires, low pressure might as well go fat bike rigid.

Have a lnk to the eBay frames for $250 from a US seller?

I'd grab a couple of those at that price...

I watch eBay pretty hard, I missed those...

The vector/ekross frames are better quality, but I agree there are updates to be made.

I would say at this point... A non swinger/BB and shape that would aclcommodate mid drives (such as the new CYCX1) or others would be a great, marketable option. Not only heavy hub builds for an option...

Or, make.the mid mount of a heavy hub concentric to the swinger pivot, and have a jackshaft for pedaling, with the BB off... Best of all of it... Silence.... Straight chain line... Ability to pedal.... And could take a speed drive.... Mmmmmm I'd buy tons of em for builds

we have the frame like you want, take a look at our Vortex model, you can use hub motor or any other middrive motor with it. let me know if I understood you correct.

Artur,

What progress ( if any ) is being done with a new , improved light weight frame .

1) Light Frame with side covers to be able to take out the battery after each ride .

2) Swingarm long enough to fit a 29 er wheel that is up to 3 inch wide .

3) Designed specific to be used with the newer Mid-Drives like the , 3000 Kw Cyclone , 3000 Kw 2019 GNG mid-drive motor , the X1 Pro, the X2 Pro , Lighting Rod's Big Block Mid Drive .

4 ) Rear dropouts that are change able
for 135 mm QR / 12 mm x 142 mm Through Axle / 12 mm x 148 mm Through Axle , etc.
( look at some of the intense bikes from about 6 years ago , they can sell you the two plates to be able to use any type of rear wheel/axle a person has ) .

5) Long , Low , and Slack frame
meaning longer wheelbase, lower , and 64 or 63 or 62 degree head tube angle .
( note the newer downhill and all mountain bikes are now 64 degree , or slacker head tube angles , 63 or 62 degree head tube angles would be even better for the faster speeds we drive our e-bikes at ) .

So .. not the heavy frames you sell now , a NEW , Designed Frame.
With all the Above Feature's

Machined plate for use on the back end of bicycle frame, different plates can be machined to be able to use one frame with many different rear wheels .
Like wheels/axles that are
135 mm QR
12 mm x 142 mm Through Axle
12mm x 148 mm Through Axle
Etc.
Here is a example of such a plate ( it is just the drive side / derailleur side, but will give you the Idea of how they look and how to make one )
