What is Tazer?

humm, you got a point. For some reason I thought Supermag couldn't be welded, got confused with 7075 aluminum. Allite has three different alloys, one that's designed to be welded, one that's best suited for casting, and another that's meant for forging. ... more »

Ahh, sorry for confusion. Ya, meant to say compared to overseas...like everyone else does it.

Either way, Pole makes fast, stable, long travel 29ers. They also are the only ones who currently build frames in a way that could use Super Magnesium.

Many were surprised to see him leave Specialized for YT bikes at the time. Pole has a unique product, they could also be the first to make Super Magnesium bikes using their CNC method. I think they could attract investors and grow fast. Signing Gwin ... more »
