Hi, as all Pistachio WI.DEs are out of stock, is a re-stock planned?

Replied via e-mail, thank you for your swift and friendly response!

In general, what's the difference between "out of stock" and "sold out" in your shopping cart system?

Hello: Is there a fully built large pistachio WI.DE actually available for sale at this time? If so, can you tell me the price? Thanks!

Looks great. Any plans for selling a complete bike based on Pistachio?

Hi Adi, no plans even more that we are sold out, I think you are based in Austria. You can contact our dealer in Hannover Enjoy your Bike. He has still some frames and could build a complete bike

Greetings gentlemen, could you kindly provide some more specifics on the brake setup on this bike?
Are mounting adapters required to fit the Hope RX4 calipers to their 180mm rotors?
It looks like Hope's 180mm rotors are only available in 6-bolt, but the HED Emporia hubs are centerlock, did you use a 6-bolt to centerlock adapter?
Thanks!

Hi Andrew, I actually tried this setup as I always liked those brakes. Actually it is not fitting 100% sure. I had to work with a shim which I hate to recommend to anybody. So my official statement is I would not set it up like that.

Thanks for the reply Andy, and yeah that is a bummer: the Hope brakes are great. I assume their 160mm rotors are too small and 180mm slightly too large.

Hi Andrew, yes thats exactly the case its a bit strange with the 180 rotors in the front you have to use a shim on one bolt (not on both)

It is pleasing and also devastating to find out 2 x RX4 rear callipers fit like I expected and that I’ve been waiting for those 4 months already...

Can you please inform shims and bolt sizes required?

I know this is probably a lost cause but are there any medium pistachio frames in the UK - I have delayed as someone I spoke to thought it was best for 650 B and compromised with 700 c wheels - I know from research that is wrong but maybe too late for the colour I want thanks Kieran

Dear Imre, I am not sure if there is still one around. I make you an intro to the only dealer which I think could still have one.
