This little weapon was built for a customer living on the West Coast. As the area is so remote and there are few shops around for servicing we had to be very smart and very practical about what parts went onto the bike. Firstly we went for a single pivot designed frame so there are minimal moving parts and the parts that are, are supported by big bearings. The running gear is all Shimano and the suspension is nice and simple for easy self servicing. It may not be the super blingly build like around this page but it is the best weapon for the job and if you have ever ridden one of these bikes they are unbelievable fun.
