    Is Sinister still making Simon Bars?

    Saw on their website that they're under new management...I'm in need of a new frame and have been eyeing the Simon Bar for a while.

    What's the skinny?

    I seen a used one here on MTBR classifieds awhile back. Someone had a raw frame built similar to a Simon geometry a couple of months ago on MTBR. That one is probobly gone. Also seen one on auction recently. They pop up on ocassion used. Might keep an eye out, if new ones are hard to come by.

    That was probably mine. Pulled it off the classifieds after a couple of rides on what I thought would be it's replacement. Now thinking the SB may be the one to keep....fun bike for sure.

    He's going to build me a steel version of the Simon Bar, with a few updates...he said his lead time is about a month. His prices are fantastic compared to some of the custom frame builders out there.

    Heres FTW email addy....

    Hopefully you get what you asked for, and not whatever was in his head that day.
