Can someone clue me into what this is? There is a frame for sale on Pinkbike: http://www.pinkbike.com/buysell/1064466/

I seriously have no idea what to make of it, I'm clueless as to what purpose it was designed for, the wheel sizes it's capable of excepting... like I'm stumped. I took my own medicine and used the search engine/google and came up with a few items, but no history or anything that can tell me... wtf I'm looking at. It's like a bastard child between some GT hardtail and a Surly Pugsley. :wtf:

I am utterly fascinated by it and want it for no logical reason whatsoever.

its an old school classic... ridden by the likes of JJ Gregorowicz.

Awesome, Titanium bike, very rare these days.. if you're not an OG you wont like it and wont get it.


I always wanted one but ended up buying Pashleys instead.

This is my bike. :) Great frames and all around fun bike. Rear disc tabs were known for cracking, and the original Capriolo forks would last about a week. Mine never cracked, but it had a lot of flex. I ended up welding it on my OTN Dayz wheelbarrow. I don't think I would pay $500 for the frame, but talk to the seller... it would be a sweet frame to pick up! I even put my seat up, throw on a water bottle cage, and go ride the trails with it.

I'm not OG, but I respect whats been around. I want it, but not interested in building up another bike right now.

Perkins, your bike(s) are tits. :drool:

He has always had a bike, but he just bought a Blast, so we should see a lot more of him this year.

I've been riding pro class in mototrials for the past 8 years but Sam is correct, never stopped riding bicycle, just was burnt out for a while and had to get my ACLs replaced. New Inpulse is built and I'll be attending any events that don't disrupt Mototrials schedule.

If you every wondered how he got so good, it was from watching me 5 all those beginner sections.
