Built a few, they are extremely light full suspension bikes, it a little flexy at the back.

I'd really like to own a B2 or early B3, I have always thought they were an incredibly simple, elegant and beautifully built thing. Although being that I have also always been, ah, stout, I suspect they're probably not the ideal retro bike for me. Still like to build one, M900 with a Mag, I think.

All the best,

Met Horst and his son Harry back in 2001/2002 via the automotive industry. We were doing a rear cargo extender for the infamous Subaru Baja made by AMP and came into our tech center for a fitting. The COOL thing was that my mtb at the time was a Fat Chance Ti WITH a carbon F3 and I had it at the office that day out of pure coincidence.

Anyway, they were super nice guys
