We didnt know Ingo personally, we just conacted him smile

Tubes came from: Zonenschein, Wowbike and Huahsines.

About dimensioning, well Peter has an engineering backround and we got recommendations from Kavenz bikes and others. And then we mostly added a bit on top wink

Yeah, we went save, especially on the chain- & seatstays in terms of wall thickness.

But i'm pretty happy with the overall weight of 17,9 Kgs.

There is no Carbon on the bike (except the handlebar), the rims are amongst the strongest on the market, the tires are true DH-Casings and no air shock.

First ride was quite a blast cool

Thx! smile

It's the 6-Gear Version with 295% range. Pretty much the same Range as a SRAM DH 7-Gear Setup.

The reason for the Gearbox was first of all less unsprung weight on the rear wheel (about 450g),
which makes the suspension more active and supple / plush. Which is the whole point of a DH-Bike suspension i'd say.

The weight also sits perfectly low in the frame and makes the bike feel super planted and stable (low center of gravity).

No derailleur to rip off, super low maintainance, always perfect chainline, no cassette to clog with mud, etc. is also quite nice smile


I do not intend to pedal it uphill ever, or any other bike ^^
