Anyone have an Urbanite??(BB question)markoCREEPY

I just got an new urbanite frame and was wondering if anyone knows what size BB it takes. On the specs page for it it says the BB width is 27 cm. Any help would be appreciated.

Contact Cary Chen, outlander@look.ca, since he is the one that designed the frame and works at the shop.

What do you think of it? Build quality? Sizing? Paint job?Did you get the threaded or unthreaded fork? Is the chromed fork really nice?

I have been considering getting one for myself but could not find anyone that had one yet.

Well, as of right now I haven't put anything on it, it's just the frame. I didn't get the fork since I already had a wound up. I've got a CK headset and a Dura Ace crank on the way. The build quality looks great. The welds look awesome. It feels a little on the heavy side but what can you expect with cromo. The paint also looks excellent. I'm not sure you can get a much better deal (as it cost under $200 for the frame). Maybe Ill post some pics once I start building it up.
