There is no brand behind it but only one person, Karsten Gleiss.
I think between 95 and 97 he has built only a few of these beautiful bikes in the colors grello, white and banana yellow.

IMO a stunning frameset ...up to the chainstay!

Hey :)

Here is a picture of my second GLEISS: 1 of only 10 manufactured full suspension frames with the AMP-system :shock: 8)

It's made in 1994. The condition of the main frame is very good, I have only to polish the chain- and seatstays.

I will build up the frame with M900-parts (derailleurs, STI, brakes), PBC crank, Control Tech stem and maybe a PACE-fork. :D

I'm still looking for a silver Control Tech bar and a polished seatpost with 30,0mm x ~350mm?

Do you like the frame?

Regards
Sebastian
