Hi,
Can anyone tell me the weight of a 2010 explosif in a 16"?
Ive tried searching but can't find the answer.

Thanks

tech
I don't have one here to put on the scale but based on past experience I'd peg it at a bit under five pounds.

hi, Thanks for that,
Looking to buy a used one to build a singlespeed.

Where do I find the info for bottom bracket size etc?

Also I read in a thread that you recommend an 80mm shock, I thought the frame was specified for a 100mm..??..
tech
BB shell is 68mm and fork is 80mm, the classic Geometry.

The UK had some 100mm Explosifs a few years before 2010 but no where else. They evolved into the Blink and the Buffer with even longer forks.

Hi again,
Thanks for info so far.....

What size seat post do I need?

thanks
tech
27.2mm is the post you need to look for.

Hi Again,
I now have the frame and built it up as a single speed.

One of the reasons I went for this frame was to have the option of having it geared if and when I want to. I now can't find anyone selling the correct hanger! will this one do?

It does not have the bit with the chain tensioner adjuster screw on it, but I guess I would run the hanger/wheel fully forward in the horizontal drop outs....

This is the one.
