So when I told people I had big news to announce this week, this is what I was talking about, Martti Kuoppa has been a hero of mine since 1996, and now to have been offered a signature frame at the age of 36 by him, I can hardly believe it, Martti also added Bert Ribul, and Navid Saleki to his team, Martti wrote this press release for the flatland world, read on...Tactics does matter..
"It´s been 14 months since I received the prototype of a Jungle Rider frame. One was shipped to me and one to Toon in Thailand. Today we are still riding the same frames without breaking or bending them.
Let me announce some up to date facts about the project:
The production will be finished end of this month, meaning that the products will be available end of March.
Martti Kuoppa, Effraim Catlow, Bert Ribul, Navid Saleki and Toon.
And here is some extra info that is in works: Flatmatters signature lineup that will be a frame and a handlebar for the start! Available: TBA. I really think that the hard work Effraim is putting on Flatmatters does really matter big time in flatland. It´s a big movement and the least I can do for Effraim is a signature frame.
He has been very supportive for Ground Tactics and to myself regarding my personal riding therefore I am honoured to have him on the team as a rider and as a great contributor for the sport of flatland.
Jungle Rider is the only sponsor for Ground Tactics at the moment. Which means every sold frame donates certain amount for the winner of Ground Tactics."
