we need superfan action shots
like it, nice frame
pretty sweet. looks like a fun ride. how does it pedal?
I only have 1...
I don't know how it pedals, I don't own one yet. these are the pics from the SWD website, the only thing I did was name the frame
the drop out on that thing looks nifty, can we get a close up?
the drop outs are the ones on found a BMW Park Bike
Hmm, 4"-6" travel on what looks like a 1.5" stroke shock. That doesn't make for a good time. Concentric pivot point makes for a crappy pedaler too.
Bummer, I was really looking forward to this bike.
That swingarm is just asking for a snappage.
No offence, but IMO that is a very poorly designed bike.
^I'd have to agree. It looks pretty cheap and not too well thought out.
have you guys ridden a crazy8???what else would you expect?
its a pos
I love the e-speculation based off two pictures
actually ive ridden the bike pictured (the blue one)
Normally I'd agree, but look at that swingarm dude. Think of the bending stress it has to deal with, and where it's concentrated at that single weld near the shock. That's just asking for breakage.
Agreed on all accounts. The fix is an easy brace job on the swing arm. It seems tough to to make a crappy bike these days, you have 20 years of other people's past mistakes and successes to look at...
Is that a finger bike?
Yes, but I wonder where they got the gnome to hold the wheel steady in the first pic.
the swing arm is a little weak but it is 4130, anyways I'll speak to steve (owner of SWD) about it
well after talking to steve about the 6-gun and the one in the pic is a prototype for another company (Califas Bike Co.) the standard 6-Gun will feature a low-pivot placement, be able to run a front derailleur if a person wants to and have 6" of rear travel. the SWD version will also be quite a bit lighter. as soon as I get new pics I'll post 'em
looks like grade A walmart material
Now I'm confused. So are you saying that isn't a SWD at all that you posted?
It is a SWD but it was made for theCalifas Bike Co. as a 4.5'' travel SS street, dirt jump bike.
this is a e-mail I got from Steve explaining the difference bettewn the SWD 6-Gun and the Califas "6-Gun"
