    The fork is True Temper and the frame is made from Columbus Zona. The 221 comes in 6 sizes and 4 colours, including......'Dusk' (Shown above. I wanted to call it 'Rancid Spam' but wasn't sure how well that would go down), 'Smog' ( A dirty, dirty grey-blue ), 'Guinness' ( A very dark brown, almost black, *duh* ) and 'Creme' ( A, well, cream colour ). All are powdercoats, coz powdercoat is tuff.

    I like Rancid Spam a lot. It paints a very clear picture, especially on a SS.

    At the expense of coming across like an a-hole, I suggest making your main page less verbose. Most of the ADD/ADHD world won't take the time to read that much text on the main page. I would suggest some dead sexy pics of your bikes with various tabs that lead people to your words once they've been sucked in by the porn. Of course, you get what you pay for in this world so I'm sure you'll value the free, unsolicited advice from an internet bulletin board.

    Great looking bikes.

    A little bird told me that you get your frames made by Baum
    http://www.jbcycles.com.au and you just pc them and put decals on them. Is this true?

    He looks to be running a EBB and Baum doesn't offer one.

    That little birdy must be suffering from some form of cerebral reality vacuum. I'm the Industrial and Graphic Designer that they hired to design the whole look of the brand, and Thylacine has no ties with them whatsoever - it's my own baby.

    So really, when you buy Thylacine, you're going straight to the source
