    A 650b CF frame would be pretty sweet...

    thanks guys

    Thanks for your support. We do plan on more 650b-centric parts, very soon.

    I doubt we'll do frames though, as the main focus is components. I would rather be an ally to bicycle manufacturers by offering them top-notch parts, not compete with them by making my own frames.

    Cheers,

    KP

    Yeah but who else is capable of making the sweetest FS 650b frame ever( Mojo HD aside)?


    Need some freeridey 650b tires at least.

    edit to add; seems there could be market for CF rear swing arms to fit various frames that do not fit 650b now but would be sweet if they did. dreaming
