Thanks Guys.
We're really excited about being a new sponsor and looking forward to sharing lots of bits and pieces over the next year.

If you’ve got any questions or would like to know any more details shoot them through. Our whole process is to try to share as much as we can.

We’ll be at next week’s Sydney BFF street fair so swing past and say hi

Hi, we only do parts. Frames, forks, custom colours and other bits and pieces. Currently we have a track frame + fork. We have heaps more in development and testing.

On 4th December our new 29er will arrive (we'll give everyone a sneak peek soon) and the MTB team will be launched.

We do build completes but only on a job by job basis.

Nice, welcome :)

So just understanding what you guys do... I've got a steel bike and I want a custom paint job and logos, you guys handle that kinda requests?

For custom painting. We generally only offer our own frames painted. We get a small number each order which are primed, finished and ready for final paint.

If you've got an existing frame you want painted then generally we just let you deal directly with our painter. We can't guarantee the painting (or really want to get involved) when we haven't done the preparation. It's all a bit fluid though, we've got a vinyl cutter and generally do all of the logos etc for the painting regardless.

For the 29er...look out for Ed on one of these soon. This is the first real look outside of our office.

Nice! Keen to see geo. Having just ridden a steel 29er across part of the country and about to do a solo 24 on one, I'm convinced it's the one bike everyone needs...

We'll post the 29er geom soon.

No Ed will not be running our bikes next weekend. If everything goes to plan (famous last words), first race will be December (Spring Fat Tyre Festival).

Swinging dropouts ala Salsa El Mariachi?

I like. I'll be keeping watch on these with interest. What tubeset(s) are you looking at for those?

Good stuff. I'm pleased to say that ticks a lot of boxes for me, the quality of the tubeset particularly. Steel is real etc. You planning on a tapered steerer option?
