Looks like an old low tech idea applied to high tech materials. Aluminium lugs and carbon fibre tubes.
Cliffhammer? do they also offer the Sledgehanger
"I'm; young enough to know the right car to buy yet grown enough not to put rims on it. I got that 6-deuce, with curtains, so you can't see me and I didn't even have to put tints on it."
The ad says "carbon surface frame" and for a 16" frame, it isn't very light (it's almost 3.8lbs).
Yeah your right, they are heavy. I didnt look very closely, I just thought it was interesting
I was just wondering if the carbon surface means it isn't carbon fiber tubes, just a stick on to make it look like carbon?
Hard to say, there isnt much info there. But if you look close you can see that its built just like they used to with lugged frames, if they were just going to give it the carbon look I dont think they'd go to that much trouble, but that could be my (high) expectations of people.
Aren't those the bikes sportcheck sell...very low end very generic bikes.
Done some searching and all the info I can find, 47 hits on google, is in polish or something like it. Dosen't look good, a high rep frame should generate more hits than that.
Yup, and I think they're also sold at costco too.Originally Posted by Maelstrom
If you look at the carbon fibre, it is shaped strangely. I don't think I've seen any carbon fibre arranged in such a curved formation.
I'm 99% sure that carbon fibre surfacing means carbon fibre stickers.
