Very cool frame, technically very interesting whatever it is :wink:

Thats what i was thinking. its ideal for a single speed with the horizontal dropouts. Or maybe just stick some big wheels and a machine gun on the front of it cos its a tank of a frame. and its got more adjusters than an insurance claims office.

KHS made something similar I think, and there's a Polish company called Zumbi that also makes frames of a similar design.

The 1-1/8" headtube makes me think it's an older bike. Might be worth asking over on the MTBR DH forums.

The rear suspension looks like a Rotec, but actually the whole frame looks like a compilation of things with everything being adjustable. Proto?
