Sneak peek: Sunday Wave-C prototype

5 11 2010

Sunday sent over some pics the other day of the new Wave-C frames they’re testing out.

While not a huge departure from the existing Model-C, it does have the wave top tube (that we’ve seen in earlier photos) and hollow dropouts with chain tensioners.

What’s changed/improved

  • a new shaped  chainstay allows you to run the backend shorter than the existing Model-C
  • a 22″ top tube (!)

Have to say, a longer top tube and the ability to run the back end shorter is a pretty big selling point for this frame. Not to mention the extra strength afforded by the wave tubing.

Production colors are probably going to be black and a light blue.

If the  color in these pictures looks familiar to you, you might be a flatlander.  It’s  actually the same one used on the Odyssey Flatware frame (and just being used for the prototype/test frames).

Any info on BB height? Was it kept at 13.75″?

Same BB height. All of us who have ridden previous versions of the Model C at that BB height all agreed that it felt awesome. So why change a good thing, I guess?

Ian I have a green 21.75″ I would like to sell. Email me at ssteinbr@cox.net for pics and more info.

I saw the wave model c proto tonight at RaysMTB. Taj was riding one…. looked awesome… 28t chainwheel max without spacing it out and messing up the chainline. I wanted to ride it but I got caught up riding the new parts of the park and lost track of him. I will see him tomorrow though… I will let you guys know.

Any chance that you’ll have a camera with you?

Would love to see Taj in action on the Wave-C.

Sorry no pics… I couldn’t find Taj… but I missed the BBQ… didn’t get there until 4pm.

But if my wife will let me out of the house for a third day in a row to ride tomorrow I will go back to RaysMTB and track him and the wave model c down.

Well I never saw Taj again yesterday… I am a RaysMTB local and ride there 4 times a week so it is just a matter of time before I come across the Odyssey guys and a wave Model C. I am so kicking myself because I could have ridden Taj’s too… it is that bright blue sunday color.

[…] frame is exactly those things. Gone are the wave tubing and wishbone back end of the Wave-C but what remains is a frame that shares the same geo of that iconic frame but is much […]
