Hi Guys, let me clear some things up. @Andrew – yes, this frame has been developed with Kinesis. They have some of the best technology available in the world when it comes to building a bicycle frame. ( tubing profiles and alloy materials , welding techniques, patented SPF process and excellent quality control – definately one of the more impressive alloy frame factories I have seen in my 17 years as a bicycle product manager ). The final frame version is significantly different to the original frame prototypes we received and have been testing ( as per the above Spy Pic ), ordering a frame off catalogue is not as easy as it may seem …. we totally revised the rear triangle, improved tyre clearance issues and front derailleur clearance, improved tolerances at the main linkage area, revised the taper headtube profile to a lighter and non-internal cable routing design ( the cables effected turning radius and shifting function ), improved cable routing on the front-end and added guides for a dropper seatpost and/or remote lockout cable, spent alot of time finalising rear shock tunes for a great ride feel. We are a new brand that focuses on offering great performing bikes at a competitive price. We use alot of catalogue products in our spec – these include offerings from Shimano, Sram, Fox and Continental to name a few. Keep an eye on our website for details on the new 2012 hardtail range – http://www.momsenbikes.com"

“Ordering out of catalog is not easy” True! You have decals to design, little bits to anodize. Un-packing the crate from Taiwan… pretty gruelling stuff
