The frame and the geometry are based around a cut out down tube to which the shock is mounted. The chosen rear shock for the model is a Cane Creek Double Barrel which uses Twin Tube technology & is the only shock that offers true 4-way independent external adjustment. The frame is loosely based around a few different DH frames including frames by Banshee, Lappierre and Giant. The frame is made from a Hydroformed OST 7005 Alloy Making it light weight but stiff for a responsive feel on freeride or down hill trails.
I was approached by G.C mountain bikes in 2011 to create a realistic model & visuals to help promote the frames design.
