    Nice, I wish we got those here in OZ. I would've sold all my bikes for one of those.

    That is indeed a sweet looking bike - can't wait to get the shop set up so I can pull one in for um....testing...yeah!

    You must have a proto if there's canti studs on it. Or do the production bikes have that capability?

    Dragon

    This is not a prototype, but it is a very early production bike. The reason it has the canti studs, is because we have offered the studs when someone buys a frameset. Do you guys like to have the frames come with the canti studs?

    Depends on which brake system is used. I like clean lines personally. If I'm not going to use a style of brakes, I don't want the other on the frame cluttering things up. Know what I mean? So it sounds like if a customer buys just the frame, they can get it either way?

    As of right now, we have changed it, I didnt like the brake bosses on there and figure 99% of the people out there are going to use disc brakes. So there are no more brake bosses on the frames.

    Zip Ties

    The zipties are only there because I wanted to use full length housing. If you dont use the full length housing then there will be no zipties.

    I just used the full length because I switch bikes a lot so I have a few der./shifter set ups all together and ready to go.

    The frames are available.
