I recently got this new bike, it is a beamed bike similiar to a saftride/zip. I spoke to the guys at softride and they said it is not one of theirs. Can anyone help me figure out who made it. THere are no marking on it and at appears to make of carbon fiber.

Should've read the first line of your post I guess ...no idea then

I checked the word "sopur" on google, looks like they make some type of hand-pedaled bike. They may have made a "normal" bike in the past though...

yes well after some research, i found out the were bought by another comapny, but still based in Germany. I sent an email to them, but no response. I guess this must be some time of a one of a kind? has no one even seen a beamed bike other than the Trek,Softride, or ZIP? the design is very aero and light, carbon fiber and alu. the compents were horrible and I am about to do the refurbish on it. guess i jsut would have liked to know a littel history on it. I got it from an estate sale in colorado and was presuming it was an estrensic person or a professional's bike.....but oh well if no one has any of ideas
