yer I spoke to ben about the cranks on msn.

BT now do all parts direct with free postage to the UK which comes within 3 working days. There will be a few new products out in february as well, so keep your eyes peeled.

While were on the subject, Is there a reason why people aren't fond of the Raven 6? is it the high bottom bracket issue? Most people that have ridden my bike find it ok and davetrials had a short Raven 6.0 and also liked it. It seems to sell well throughout europe but not so well here in the UK just looking to get peoples ideas and what they might want to see on the next version of the bike.

thanks patt

I think that the main problem with the Long BT6 is that even with the BB rise which should make the frame feel shorter it is actualy TOO long, people who had ridden mine had said how it felt too long, this makes them hard to tap etc.......

in my opinion if the wheel base on the long BT6 was reduced to maybe 1080-1090 it would make it a MUCH more managable bike, it was a phenominal bike on the back wheel, and for big power moves such as sidehops and wheelswaps (pigeons) but for any thing which requires pedaling up walls/rocks etc it was just too long, which made it to hard to lift the front end........

Also in my opinion the stem which has been designed for these frames to compensate for the high BB is TOO high, as with a 40mm BB rise u only want a stem to wich will have a rise of 40-45mm After i did some calculations i found that the current BT stem has a rise of 75mm, when i had my BT i ran a koxx 130mm 25degree rise stem which gave me 45mm rise above the 0 degree equivelent stem, which i fetl was PERFECT........ (i have a feeling Felix is currently running the same stem on his Short BT6)

If the wheelbase was reduced slightly, by 10-15mm ish and retained all the other geometry the same i think the bike would be INCREDIBLE and much nicer to handle and use for pedal ups etc.......

That is my oppinion, seeing as i have a feeling that i have owned a BT6 long for the longest out of everybody on the forum (i think) even though i do not have it.
