these puppies. Definitely not freeriding machines, but you could
always try to give em a little huck anyway, I guess ?? Check them

Straight from Japan Straight from Japan
I found this link while looking through the back
of the most recent issue of mountain bike magazine. I was struck
by one of the coolest looking (hardtail) frames I had ever seen.
I’m currently in the market for a new bike, so I checked out the
link at the bottom of the ad.
Man was I ever glad I did. These frames are some of the coolest
hardtail frames I’ve ever seen. The most impressive feature is the
ability to accommodate 24" wheels or a 26/24 combo, and having a
BMX feel due to large frame gussets and horizontal dropouts (chain
tensioners might be a nice option). If that's not enough for you
they've got a damn cool Japanese favor! That alone is almost enough
of a reason for me to buy the frame unfortunately I don't have that
much money floating around.

Note from the editor:
If you can't afford the bike, just get one of the Jerseys or "Tatoo
downtube stickers" Go to
and look in the "stuff" section.
