Legend Update

I'm getting swampped now with guys wondering when the Legends will start arriving.
Well the good news is that we're only couple weeks max. Packaging has arrived and looks pretty cool, Ti hardware didn't arrive today but should arrive tomorrow but we've already started pressing in bearings, threaded inserts, and other things that can be done before putting in the axles. I'm down in assembly with the guys hand chasing every thread, reaming holes, and just watching over everything just so we all get a good feel on how the fit and finish is. Its very much hands on and we can feel how every bearing fit feels pressing in and how every pivot bore diameter feels as well. I know that this is Taiwan and I know people think that means mass produced but the attention these bikes are getting is very reminiscant of handmade. For me it feels great getting on the floor and putting these together and knowing that the frame some of you will be getting will be 100% dialled because i've personally either gone totally over it or assembled it myself.
I'm pretty happy how everything is going together and I think the time we spent working on it has definitely been worth it.

The other thing people have been asking is when are we going to get to see the Black/Green and the White/red.
As soon as i get the hardware I will build them up and snap off a bunch of pics.
The team red was pretty sweet looking, but personally i'm loving the white and red. The red is kinda of that coral neon red so it just pops off the white. On the right you can see it on a color tube sample. Links will be black so it will tie in black parts on the bike.
The Black/green has a black upper link with the green lower link that will match the decals. It also looks super nice to.
I know that some people don't want something as flashy as the team but still want to subtley have people notice their bikes. I think the Black/green and White/red do that quite nicely but still look very racey.

Ok thats it from me for now

recently I was surfing internet and suddenly I came across site called www.home-businessreviews.com I discovered how to begin my own home business and i was able after all quit my work where i worked 1 year, now I'm earning 150$/day. I was able to make such kind of money because I discovered some really great home business reviews. At website named www.home-businessreviews.com Anyway seems that website owner at last discovered winner online business program which helped him to start his own internet home business opportunity, so he finally decided to set up site and tell about his own experience about earning money online. It seems that he lost so much money before he came across winner home based business program which actually work. But which one? Find out at site below!

Devon Balet said...

you has spitfire? i wanna one please...

guillaume said...

just one question Is it safe to have such a hole in the box to show the product for sure it's awesome for display but everyone knows what it is and the high end value of it

I'm just scared that this would be stolen ...

Keith Scott said...

Don't worry, there is a box round all that, this is just what will great you when you open up the outder box. You will see what I mean when you get your frame.

guillaume said...

ok then yes thump upp!!

Norbert said...

So what's with the axles? Have they arived?

Keith Scott said...

Axles eventually came in on the 11th... but the whole of Taiwan shut down for Chinese new year for 10 days on the 12th. Typical timing!
As soon as everyone is back from the holiday they will start shipping out.

Norbert said...

Are you sure the pacyfic factory or the banshee office has no bad feng shui or a curse of some kind? ;) How long typicaly frames take to go to the UK?

Keith Scott said...

That depends how they are shipping. Jay will have to answer that one...
