Need inspiration for a name? Here is some background on Dartmoor and the new frame
New full suspension frame from Dartmoor Bikes with 180mm/200mm travel.
The brand's roots run deep in MTB dirt jump and street riding with several models of custom designed hardtail frames, but in the last few years Dartmoor has turned out more and more full suspension frames. The first project was the Shine frame which was one of the first FS frames designed from the beginning for slopestyle riding.
The second FS project coming out of the Dartmoor designers was the Wish - a perfect frame to build a bikepark, fun bike for all those who wish to leave the city jungle or backyard dirt jumps to taste some real MTB freeriding.
The new frame has adjustable 180mm/200mm travel and is built with a fully custom designed tubeset, CNC machined parts, 150x12mm hub spacing standard, asymmetrical swing arm construction, tapered head tube for integrated headsets and big bearings inside the frame to provide great stiffness and durability and survive the hardcore riding. The suspension system is rather simple and trouble free, but designers optimized it to achieve a linear characteristic of the first stage (some 40%) of the frame travel which is becoming strongly progressive in the second stage. This makes the frame sensitive to even small bumps, but is also forgiving on the really harsh landings. Now it's your turn. Find the best name for this frame which will correspond to the freedom of riding through the forests and mountains and living in harmony with nature. Post your name as a comment under this article or at the Dartmoor-Bikes fanpage. The best one will be awarded with a brand new Dartmoor Wish Pro 2013 complete bike. The contest ends on the 29th of March and the winner will be announced on the 2nd of April.
