    Looks cool. you guys ride street or trials?? If its a 26 inch frame how can you run bashies legaly in trials comps? For give that comment if it sounds ignorant. I just thought the rules said you cannot run a bash guard like a mod on a stock bike. Aside from that its cool looks like a PX :bigthumb:

    you can just take the basher off at the end of the day it makes no difference. its there so if you want one its available to you, but if you dont you take it off. no its not legal for comps so i wont run mine on but some street riders or non competitive riders may want it. just because its got a bashplate is no reason to buy a frame is it ?

    well, some might consider it a valid reason, but the better question is what reason is there to buy this frame? it's a frame. what's special about it? i can't really tell. it looks like any old frame.

    the frame looks OK - I guess - if you provide some details it could be nice - why don't YOU tell US what's good about this bike - if you want to sell any that is. By the looks of it you're marketing towards the urban/freeride crew and would be better off posting this on another board - any trials rider would call a bashplate and such a long seat tube dead weight - plenty of bikes out there without dead weight.

    That doesnt have anything to do with this though...

    The Zoo Pitbul is a totally different frame to the Coustellier (apart from cosmetically)

    haha...yes, i know that now, and that is why i had previously stated "the pitbul is bitchy".

    base bikes should try and make a real trials bike with realy trials geo, and none of this seat or magura 4-bolt crap. :bigthumb:

    Yeah, I've decided they're probably just a bunch of douchebags.

    no need to read that thread, his last reply states it all. There are so many frames to choose from lately that you're going to have to do something to sell your frame, give us a reason to buy it. I have zero interest in that frame, but if you gave me some specs and they sounded good maybe I'd (or someone else would) be interested?

    So far all I know is that it's a 26" frame with a working seat-tube (gay IMO) and a bashplate (also gay IMO). Be a good rep for your sponsor and tell us why we should buy this bike.
