    Is "prototype" the new term that you use when you break a part and still hold onto it for some reason? If so, I have a huge box of stuff that fits that description. I'm thinking of listing it somewhere as prime "VRC" stuff... I'm sure there's a collector of that stuff that wants these things.

    I think it's a shame that this has potentially driven a wedge between the entire worldwide ControlTech Team Issue Aficionado population, of 2.

    The hardtail obviously. The FS ones suck!

    and why are both sides with singlepeed dropouts, when one side is bronken, why should the welded the outher side to singlepeed dropouts too? Bevore I buy the frame, it was never ridden and brand new. The frame comes with singlespeed dropouts.

    They also made some Single Speed bikes...
    Here are some scans from MBA, Jan'99:





    unotache
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    make that ONE Single Speed Frame.
    That was my bike, with an intersting story.

    MBA reviewed a polished silver gearie version of that bike a few years earlier. When the frame retruned it spent the next few years being raced by some local sponsored riders, until the der. hanger was ripped off in a crash at the Catcus Cup Dirt Boy Crit.

    The frame sat in my office for a while until I convinced on the of guys to modify a set of REDLINE BMX dropouts, and had Jason Grove weld them in place.

    Off to heat treat and a fresh SID blue powdercoat.

    A few weeks later we got a call from MBA who was putting together a Single Speed Shootout (I think this marked when SS Jumped the Shark)

    I never bothered to tell the wrecking crew we sent them the exact same frame as the reviewed a few years earlier. Note that I sent it to them with a rigid fork which they replaced with the Manitou.

    CT never made another SS frame.



    Stefan- the mystery is solved. Your bike has some history. Congrats.

    Hey, looks like you have contact info for unotache. Would you mind passing that my way? I have some unfinished business with Mike and he's proven difficult to get a hold of.
