    Da Bomb?



    Anyone ever heard of this frame. It's forsale on Pinkbike and looks like a pretty beefy frame, but has anyone ever heard or had experience with it

    Never heard of them but is it just me or does the rear look insanely wide? Maybe its the angle of the picture.

    Overbuilt frames. I have read good reviews if you don't mind something a little heavier than the average alum frame. Cheap too if I remember right.

    I was just on that website. I love that Da Chariot Saddle. That was some pretty sweet paint they put on the cover.

    My mate bought a Da Bomb CR8. It is an insanely nice street rig, cro-mo of course and only cost $200 Australian because they stopped making them. Da Bombs are, as said above, a bit over built, but they take a beating. The Molotov however does have a bit od a different geo to the CR8, I think some people complained that the geo gave you a sore lower back or knee pains, depepnding on how you set it up. But this was only a few isolated complaints, probably from people wit long legs.

    The projectile is a very nice rig to ride, but don't buy a Da Bomb chain guide, the bash guard is a POS.
