i saw it a week or so ago at the Privateer film night in london. we didn't hear much though as there was too much noise in the cafe, but the guy sat next to me couldn't understand why guy could brush the paint off the frame, so i had to explain that it was powder until it's heated.

i like being a bit of a geek :D

Im surpirse dhe has never put much thought into the process what with his background and all!

Oldest machine is 10 years old, good to see theyre investing some monies back into the production to maximize quality at the output. The bending machine haha.

I loved seeing this in action, makes my frame feel more 'genuine' and personal.

Pick and choose as we go round if you want?!!

He is so right about downhill, it really is the 'hip' vein of mtb.
Find it funny how he is mocking 760 vs 800 when im on 560's and what 9not considering going up 100mm and such!

Guy is effing hilarious!

That really my dream job.

Really enjoyed that, thanks for sharing.

Suddenly feel the need to buy an Orange now though. :)

Ace bunch up there as well. Have been to the factory a few times and been shown around. Somehow makes my 5 feel more personal if that makes sense.
