    Hey folks.

    I received an email from Davis Carver yesterday with photos of an AL Killer B that he recently put together. Davis gave me the green light to post up the bike and provide you guys with some additional details so here goes.



    The bike pictured is actually a Carver 96er frame, so tire clearance is a little tight - but doable and geometry was dialed in via some adjustmentes to the eccentric bottom bracket.



    Per Davis:
    Since we use an eccentric BB, we can rotate it to the lower position
    to get the correct BB height. We're using the X Fusion Velvet set at the 120
    to 110 range to get a 70 degree head angle.

    300 mm BB height and a 42.5" wheelbase. Seems to handle well with the
    standard rake. I may try it with a Fox, just to compare.

    We are coming out with a
    dedicated, standard BB(not Eccentric) aluminum BumbleBee and KillerBee frame
    that will retail at around $350.00. About three months or so.

    Thought you all might be interested in this news.

    Cheers,

    Mark

    Yeah that's a nice pricepoint.
