I think the top is much nicer. Love the mountain.

Question, If I wanted to use the DZ60 PCB in the Fjell with this layout that has arrow keys:




Does that mean I need to purchase a DZ60 specific plate? In other words, will the plate that Mekanisk sells be incompatible with this layout?

Not sure if will be compatible, but the plate of your image and the one that comes with the fjell looks pretty similar.
Also there is an option to not buy the fjell plate (reduces the price in 10$)

It seems very similar, I'll do a double check later.

Really cool idea to have the removable standoffs.  Good for hotswap but also good for people who want to experiment with other materials.  I have some anti-vibration standoffs (they sell them in a few form factors (m2 and m3) for drones) that I would like to try out in the case.  They have brass m2 holes but the standoffs are a medium density rubber.  Might make for a nice typing experience.   Would be cool if they were all removable, but I can see that is probably impractical

Keep in mind that this only apply to the middle and bottom stand off

I'd also like an answer to this.

Anyway, SUPER excited for this! I also really like the idea of the removable standoffs in the middle.
The R1 grey is a must for me. I'd really like to see a render of what your idea of Ultramarine Blue looks like.

Brass works better than titanium. It's a bit more expensive for parts line these, however they have the best thread integrity.

2 months for the Fjell Classic

We were lucky with the Klippe 2019, so it might ship before the estimated date.

Would any of you be interested in an electrophoretic coated (white) Fjell for a significant price increase?
The process is more expensive because of logistics and the tech itself, and I am wondering if it is worth it or not for you.

I would be in for this but depending on the price increase of course. Maybe do a limited amount depending on interest. Still cant vote though for some reason

I'm thinking poll voting is restricted to users with a deeper post history and/or those who've been registered for a certain period of time? I can't vote either but I don't mind since Dark Grey is confirmed as an option.

I'd consider purchasing that white as well but the fact that it would come at a steep price increase -- in addition to the already premium price tag/shipping, means I'm most likely gonna end up going for Grey in the end.

Depends on the markup for an e-white case honestly. I know shipping's going to be fairly expensive so I'll probably go for a dark grey case to save some monies. But an e-white fjell is definitely tempting.

Thank you for your interest, everyone. If you can't vote, that is not a huge deal, I am interested in hearing your opinions just generally and a text post works as well.
I am working on a Keebtalk thread as well, for those that use that.

I have also been working to get something else available for the Fjell R4 Pre Order, however I am not ready to announce it yet ;)

I can't contain my excitement for this GB. If it were a box I would be shaking it violently.

Plate options? Full brass version? Something better?
