“We’re excited to make the performance of our frames accessible to more riders,” said Vin Quenneville, director of sales. “While many riders enjoy the complete customization of a frame-up project, there are a lot of people looking for a solid build out of the box. Our goal was to put together bikes that we would ride, bikes without any ‘take-off’ parts, at a realistic price.”
