I’m planning to order a Flanimal 5.0 framesets and building a 2x. I’m looking at the build components store and wondering if there’re any hardware I should order as well. eg, do I need to get the slider hardware or those are included? I’d appreciate your recommendations.
If you are building with modern Shimano the front derailleur will have a housing stop and no additional hardware will be needed.
If you are using an older Shimano front mech or a Sram front mech you would need our optional housing stop clamp which we supply at no cost but it must be requested. Make sure you get a front derailleur with a built in clamp mount or order a separate clamp when purchasing a clampless front derailleur. The frame does not have a built in front derailleur mount / clamp.
Sliders, axles, and seatpost collar are included with the frame.
You will need to source everything else including headset, BB, and a headset compression plug in particular. Don’t use a star nut in any carbon steer tube!
