An interesting design on this one - triple triangle frame, really long wheelbase and double XT U-brakes. Does anyone have more info on it?

Holy long steerer tube batman!

I love it though, double U-brake is always a treat and the triangle/triangle makes some interesting tubing angles. Thanks for posting.

Usually all double u-brakes really means is the period of time that the bikes were from. 86-88ish. I recall Kedo as a flash in the pan and remember seeing them at a couple trade shows and in industry magazines and then they disappeared. From what I recall the had both hellenic and archetype frames in their line. Based on the spec of the Kedo at the link I'm guessing it was an 87 because it's got a 6 speed rear end and no flex guard on the u-brake.
