Anyone heard of Kuips bikes???

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Anyone heard of Kuips bikes???

Here is a link to the USA distributor : http://www.spiukusa.com/

Looks like they have switched to Dolan brand frames. Think the Kuips are still sold under that brand in Europe.
Spanish made?

That's because you have to spell it backwards. Don't ask me why.

you know...I saw that link and thought to myself.. "Gee, that's weird, its spelled backwards" and then thought it was wrong.
I am going saturday to pick it up.
Yes...frame was made in spain. The component level is too good to pass up, and at 17lbs, that just adds to the reasons why I am going to get it.
