Does anyone recall this mountain bike from the mid to late 90's downhill racing scene? It was a short lived company and I was also curious if anyone has ever seen one of these in person..

I actually started the company at age 17. I drew this bike up in my highschool drafting class and went on to build & sell them after I graduated.

It was a major flop business wise but I acquired a more than general understanding of engineering, manufacturing, marketing, racing, and selling.

I held onto one of them for nostalgic reasons.

I'm not a mountain bike type of guy but if I had one this would be it! Just out of curiosity what did these sell for new? V/r Shawn
2800 frame and fork (i think). At the time, high end framesets were selling for around 1800 without forks. I used my relationship w Zzyzx/Bullet USA. I could purchase these forks at a very low price and create a package that would help offset my huge cost of producing these cnc'd swingarms.

Here's a look at the DH scene when this bike was new. It looks so antiquated now. I think If I could compete in this race with my current bike I'd have placed.
