It was anthony quinn's son who was involved in the design of the sbike I believe- he was a motocross rider and was asked to do it and bring with him some ideas from that sport into mt biking- the history of the sbike is clouded in stories of money laundry and scullduggery (co. lasted just about 3 years) it was the swatch company that bankrolled the sbike- suppose they were looking to take the s...... brand all over the place.

All of the above might be good enough to get in wikipedia but as you know that means it is by no ways to be relied apon.

I'm with you on that one Al, I should hate the bike but it has a certain charm I can't put my finger on.

They are/were ment to be prone to frame issues but WTF they way I ride it should be ok :roll:
