2008 GM Designs Greg Melms Daily Driver 24

2008 Melms Daily Driver Cruiser
Serial number: None
With this frame I wanted a 24" that I wouldn’t have to worry about scratching or damaging if something went wrong at the trails or street.
I kept the geometry short and steep and fabricated some simple, strong hooded rear drop outs. The heat treated yoke lets the rear tire tuck up close to the bottom bracket for a super short 13.75” chainstay.
Specifications:
HTA: 74.0*
STA: 73*
TT: 21.375”
CS: 13.75”
BB: 12.0”
Wheel base min: 37.080”
Headtube: 1 1/8” integrated
Bottom bracket: MID
