Well, it has been really busy up here with the arrival of the frame production sample on Friday. After checking it over, it was off to Blackout to get some pictures taken for catalogs and what not. As soon as I got back to Buffalo, I immediately put it together with no problems. The Mid bottom bracket actually pressed right in with only the aid of a piece of wood and everthing else went together without any troubles. The frames are on the way and should arrive sometime around the third week in May, sorry but this stuff takes time.
Here is a photo moments after the frame arrived, note the colorful frame box that you will see with every frame.
This is one of the colors the frame will come in with the others being gray and red. Note the freshly painted wall behind me…no check the graphics and lack of gyro tabs on this sample. Come back tomorrow to see if I am brakeless or have a straight cable when I post my bike check.
Yes, it sure does say 41Thermal right on the brake bridge. So what this means is the whole frame is 41Thermal not just the brake bridge. Now you are going to wonder about the warranty. The frame is going to have a LIMITED LIFETIME WARRANTY against manufacturers defects judged on a case by case basis. So if you have an old frame and throw it against a tree to get a new one, I can’t help you.
