Does anyone remember RAM frames - an early 90s British manufacturer I think - big tubed aluminium front end with an elevated chainstay at the back. I remember MBUK doing an article on an all-British bike and this was the frame they used. Any info greatly appreciated, even better if someone has one they aren't using any more!

cheers, Jim

Yup, the're the ones I remember too. I don't recall Switzerland being in Britain. :wink:

I remember a MTBPro article on it, in the same mag as the tests on a Orange P7 and a Formula 1 full suss so maybe that's why you remember it as British, or is there another Ram????

thanks ever so much for the post of the actual article - I was denying my sanity when the Hartmann's popped up, as they look sort of similar - and they claimed to make a burnished aluminium one that must have looked very like the UK one.

Anyway, that article was like a time machine!

I'd love to get hold of one - please keep me in mind if anyone's thinking of selling one
