Our brakes are going to be fitted directly to the swing arm. All I care about is how the frame performs personally, with FTW's heritage I would expect this frame to be absolutely bang-on.

How the frame performs is always all that matters ;) Well, unless your over on pink bike... then everything has to fit the perfect "fad" image. (Reason Im enjoying digging through this site so much... is all you guys have a "if it works great and puts a smile on your face thats all that matters" ordeal :)


Will love to see some in-depth reviews on this. Video review anyone"?

OK Here we go, new decals on frame and also the Spooky Bikes prototype Bandwagon jump bike of Nick's too

Et voila, feedback so far is that the frame absolutely handles like a dream although it hasn't been raced on as of yet and Nick's still getting used to it.

:D

Very Distinctive, gotta love Frank's handywork


That blue jumpbike is nice too, but to be a "proper" Bandwagon it needs some gussets ...

Enjoy!!
