Well, as expected, Garrett Reynolds’ brand, Fiend, is getting closer to having their first run of products available. Blackout Distribution dropped a few sneak peek photos and specs of the frame.
The Fiend frame will be made right here in the U.S of A (but it didn’t specify by who…) with a 75 degree head tube angle, 71 degree seat tube angle, 11.625″ bottom bracket height, 8.5″ (20.5″ / 20.75″) or 9″ (21″ / 21.25″) stand over height and a chainstay length of 13.5″ (20.5″ / 20.75″) or 13.75″ (21″ / 21.25″). If you didn’t catch it, the frame will be available in top tube lengths of 20.5″, 20.75″, 21″ and 21.25″. The Fiend frame features a mid bottom bracket, custom integrated head tube with drilled holes for gyro tabs, removable mounts, low profile 5mm thick dropouts, integrated seat post clamp and a gusset at the down and head tube junction. The first run will be available in satin black with a weight of 4.9 lbs. on the 20.5″.
