So when do you launch the kickstarter then start yelling at potential customers?

The bike sounds great, congrats on the reviews

Quick update:

A couple of magazine reviews are now online.
Links are in this page: http://www.craftworkscycles.com/index.php/enr
The Aussie review was done with a couple of rides, the NZ review is based on a long term (still going) test.

Also, we've now got some bikes in the UK. Details to be released soon. Should mean some good pricing for UK/EU customers.

We're almost out of stock of large frames here in Aus. If you're thinking about getting one, hit me up for international shipping quotes (free freight if you're within Australia).

Just found this from the Taniwha review comments on Bikerumor:





I'd like to see a version with the shifter pads stacked on just one side of the handlebar though.

And since some crazy Swiss guy made a hydraulic ratchet box for the Rohloff hubs, seems like it would be possible to do the same with the Pinion gearbox.



I rode that bike after the hand made bike show in Salt Lake. The builder left it at our shop to be shipped back home. I really liked the two shifters. One up one down. Better than the grip shift design. Just took it around the block. No real ridding.

Really loving the detail and engineering that’s gone into this bike.

Is there any plans for a DH version of the ENR?

How does the bike ride with a coil on it compared to an air shock? Or is it better with air because of the leverage ratio?
Any plans for on a demo day in QLD?

Cheers!

Hi NSH,

Thanks for the compliment!
I've got a DH bike modelled up, but at this stage I can't really see it being economically viable to go into production. Perhaps we'll consider some sort of crowd funding for a DH bike, so we can gauge interest before going into production.

Surprisingly, the coil works quite well. There are a few customers running a coil now. It's super supple in the early stroke and has lots of support in the mid stroke. On paper, it should blow through the last part of travel more easily, but the feedback from customers hasn't suggested there's an issue with that.
We don't have plans for a demo day in QLD, but might be able to tee something up with one of our customers up there. Perhaps drop us an email through the Craftworks webform?

Cheers,
Hugh.

Well I know I'd certainly be keen on the DH bike as its the one bike I don't have. Is it modelled off the I-Track P2 design?
