Jake Eley on the new Ground Control Aluminium Frames. Closer look and geeking out on some of the specs.
Measurements: Frame height GC: 32mm
Frame height Sola: 30mm
Middle wheels split GC: 114mm
Middle wheels split Sola: 112mm
(This makes sense! If the tolerance is tight then you directly sacrifice the same amount of ride height for middle-wheel split and vice versa)
Frame wall thickness GC: Thicker!
Frame Wall thickness Sola: Thinner!
Kizer Element 2 frames have a split of 140mm and a height of 40mm, it’s not a sensical comparison though as they are designed to take different sized wheels.
