    looks like a really sick rig now, it looked great before and the smoother lines just make it that much more lust worthy.

    yes the grips are hyperlite but a bit flexi!

    the export version is the one you are looking at is still priced at 190k chilean pesos, im afraid the USD has been creeping up due to, well, everybody knows why.
    as for shock options, the one pictured is the option, you can email me at vheresmann%yahoo,com. both me and majin will be a bit busy for the next two weeks as im enslaving him to build us a gargantuan ramp for our urban dh race (www.valparaisocerroabajo.cl) but after that he should get the frames going.

    Very nice and interesting. Is there anywhere I can find the numbers behind the frame?

    The brake positioning is a cool idea.

    Nice looking work. =]

    first time i saw a mount in that spot was on a trails bike. very slick.


    hey vitox, seems like you guys are really taking this frame building seriously! that bike looks REALLY slick. are you still shipping to the US? i am very interested in one of these bikes...


    and i'd like to see the geometries numbers as well... how many different specs are you guys making?

    actually, the man has always been dead serious about making frames, its been a slow process due to lack of time and also the fact that they are in such demand that its hard for him to take a step back and focus on renewing the design but its been a steady process of incremental improvements while keeping the utterly low price, and at the same time the trademark burlyness the kids here love, any gringo who makes it down here and sees any local race always makes the remark about how many of them are around and thriving under very hard abuse.

    as for specs, right now standard is 135/12mm with standard BB and HT, optional is 1,5HT and 150/12mm rear end and 83mm BB, frame length can be increased a bit from what you see in the pic but not much.

    That urban DH race is a total bust. Chile is full, everyone should just stay home. ;)
