I just won a Sevysa "emotion" frame and bars off ebay.
I only wanted it for the Manitou 2s attached but I wondered if anyone knows anything about these frames.
Seems a well built oversizes aluminium frame which started life with a full XT group. Will post pics later.

Thanks!

It was tricked out mind !

If you do a search on www.mtb-news.de they seem to say they had something to do with grafton (I think)

They are Swiss indeed. If I remember correctly they were importer for some parts, I believe Syncros and Grafton. They sold complete bikes with those parts allover, mostly on a 7005 or Easton 7005 frame.

Yes, its Easton 7005 frame, unfortunately never to be ridden again as I found a small hairline crack in the head tube!

seeing as it only cost £ 9.50 - YES!
The Manitous are in minty mint condition - just need a service is all.

i guess that s correct. there were importeurs for some other hi-end manufacs of components and frames too but don t remember them.
they still exist but don t have anything to do with the bike-business since approx '97.
