From Carter Holland at Black Market Bikes:
There’s almost nothing better than when you’re expecting something new and exciting to show-up. Today just happened to be one of those days and the waiting is over!!!! We just received the first production sample of our most ambitious project to date…
So, without further adieu… I give you the Black Market Killswitch exactly as you will see it in approximately 40 days… that’s right, 40 days!!!
Revisions for the production model consisted of a new headtube, larger diameter downtube, beefed up headtube section and lots of new machining to the backsides of the linkages and rear triangle.
The Hammer-Link is the epicenter of our suspension technology providing 100mm of extremely versatile travel. After months of successful testing it has undergone some additional machining to reduce weight in non-structural areas.
One of the more important revisions has come from X-Fusion in the form of a custom tuned version of the 2010 02 RCX shock which has performed exceptionally well during testing. Expect to see and hear more about this soon.
Thought out touches like cable routing, replaceable threaded inserts or NyLock nuts at every bolt location and a replaceable BB shell combine to make this, one bad mutha…
Replaceable drop outs available in horizontal, vertical or Maxle versions and are “Lego Fit” into the drop out lug and held firm with 2 x 8mm bolts… no chain ring bolts here.Killswitch Features:
