    Hi realy nice bike. Where does this brand come from? I know that Husqvarna is a Swedish brand that makes Motorcycles, sewing machines and now a bike!

    Where can i get a bike/ frame like these?

    I use Husqvarna chainsaws in my business, my wife has a Husqvarna sewing machine and I have ridden Husky motorcycles but have never heard of a bicycle made by them. Electrolux is the owner of Husqvarna if I am not mistaken? Along with Jonsereds. You are definately going to have to flesh out your story a bit just to satisfy my curiosity!

    Husqvarna

    They are owned by the same conglomerate that owns Ducati now. I suspect a sticker job on a Spicer.

    Husqvarna seems to have been making singlespeeds for longer than most current SS brands combined :-)

    It wouldn't be a re-badged Matt Chester, now would it?

    Matt does not do gussets or wishbone stays AFAIK

    So obviously Husqvarna has a history of building bikes that spanned quite a number of years. They even had the wheel diameter correct for adult sizing. So with their resources I guess it makes sense for them to make bikes again. It will be interesting to see if they take it as far as a FS bike with their moto background.

    Good point.
    This gentleman seems to be in Eastern Europa/Russia. Some serious welding going around there locally too. I only mentioned MC as he's linked on the mondo's website.

    Mondo that...

    Is very, very cool. Can you give some more background and details on the bike, materials, and sources?

    The segmented seatstays and forward facing seatpost slot remind me of the Tinbred. However, looking at the one in Andy Armstrong's gallery, I can't tell if it has TT and DT gussets like Mondo's.

    I´m allmost shure that it is a nice repainted On-One 29:er http://robert.mysnaps.org.uk/p23277710.html

    I realy liked it in grey, is it painted?

    Not enough BB drop to be a 29er. Keep guessing :-)

    Which one do you replay too? It`s hard finding pictures at the 29:er at your homepage, so i guess that the Inbred i linked too is a 26". But i think that every detail is very much like the On-One 29er, and the rear end is looking just like my Kaffenback, have you seen the design before

    I'm pretty sure that if it were from Sweden that those of us here would have seen it here before it made it's way to Flahrida.

    Very nice badge engineering in any case.

    Looking forward to finding out where it came from.

    Aaah yes, rear wheel might be 26". Lots of clearance, few BB drop indeed. Short fork.

    Realy nice bike, if i understood you right it is a 26" Inbred with a fork made for 29". What is the meaning with this setup? is it the bb hight or any thing else with the frame design?

    I have been looking for a painting like this to paint my Planet-X Kaffenback witch needs repainting, is it a special brand of paint?

    Yes, it is a 26er made into a 29er, with the fork made to work with my next 29er frame.

    I wanted a 29er. I don't like the high front ends and needed a cheaper frame to ride to work.
    So, i cut the brake mounts off and rebrazed them on. Did major work at the seatstays to
    get the 2.1 29er tire in without cutting any welds. I had the fork made so that i can run it when i am ready for my custom 29er to be built in 6 months or so.

    I guess you could say that this is the first step in me building my first bike frame. Knowing what you want, and how it rides is hard to do when you are new into frame building.

    The BB is a bit high, but the bike rides great! Lots of log clearance. The Mary bars are gone now and have been replace with Salsa Bell Lap bars. I also have a Feegle bar at the house.

    The paint is special. It is about 50 American dollars a can ( spraypaint ). We had some cans left over from a military job a few years back, so i used a can. I wanted to try the Airforce fighterjet gray paint we have, but it takes thinning and useing reducers to get it to spray right. Maybe next time.

    I don't know where you are located, but if it is worth it money wise, i can sandblast it and paint it for you.

    Peace!
