 Seems like a joke, but no... I just googled them and yes, "Braking" is a company that makes... you guessed it, brakes. Haha...

I should start a bike company and just call it "Riding a Bike".

 I notice here some influence of Cédric Gracia. My bet will be that later they will switch frames or to Production Privee which will need to create a downhill frame or Forestal doing the same creative work.

 Yes... so let`s imagine a steel DH frame by Production Privée... fancy... but why not... unless...................................

 you would think with steel tubing they could CAD up a design and have prototypes welded in under a month. If they like the VPP/V10 design, they could even weld up a geometrically exact copy for a prototype
