St Martin Parts 2009
« on: December 03, 2008, 11:07:55 PM »
We just updated the parts section with the latest St Martin parts. You can almost build a complete St Martin bike now. First of all there are two new or improved frames available:

Eiffel Frame 2009 - Weight: 1751 g = 3.86 lbs
Diamond Frame 2009
- Weight: 1724 g = 3.80 lbs

Let´s continue with the front part of the bike. The Eien Bars are available in different sizes and you can connect them to the Mikado Fork ( 820 g = 1.81 lbs ) with the new X26 Stem.
Next up are cranks and wheels. The Hollowflat Crankset (595 g = 1.31 lbs) became a bit lighter but doesn´t include a sprocket. But of course they offer a sprocket as well: English Sprocket.
The Hollohub and Domino Rim are additions to the product range - only some St Martin spokes are missing right ?
Last but not least you may want to perform some tricks on your french stud so check out the Hollopegs, too.

KHE Tantra?.. Yes?.. No?.. I smell plagiarism again and again.
Yeah yeah, the rear triangle has no bent tubes.. so what? Paint it in yellow, you'll see a Tantra right away..

Love the handlebar. Cranks look nice too.

Paint it baby blue and you'll see a GT show.

In other words, shut up.

Not really no. Both things, about frame geometry plagiarism and shutting up.

Getting sick of all the rebranding that's all.

^ getting sick of all the "they copied so and so" that seems to be going on.  There is only so much a frame can be. Change some geo here, add a slight bend there... You don't hear this crap in the street market, and to my inexperienced eye they ALL look the same.  But if you look at the tubing, geo, sizes etc you will see the differences. 

Seems like just the other day everyone was moaning about not enough flat specific frames and now everyone is moaning that there are too many, or that everyone copies everyone.

also, not trying to bash anyone, all I can say is that if you think that this is just rebranding or something, maybe you can help the flat community and the companies by posting or submitting a design that you think is not done before or not "rebranded". Maybe you have an idea of what an original design should look like.

sorry for my bad english. -_-

and oh well, props to st. Martin. ^_^ ^_^

in terms of nice clean parts, I love St. Martin. I like the clean lines of their frames and the overall presentation of the brake mounts and how everything is removable! God knows I'd try brakeless again one day. Or at least throw on some rear brakes and attempt decades to faceplants.

*Everyone knows its a beauty pagent these days.

My sick child frame and ST martin/quamen/suelo/primo parts.

le sprocket anglais c'est incroyable. really, a 16 tooth sprocket with 8 teeth. will it be bendy? probably not because the radius is so small.

st martin is - classy design fused with subtle engineering like the artistry and technique in flowy riding.

with eclat and flatware emerging on the scene, it will sure be a quality fest.

my only question.. where are the parts made?

the new parts of st. martin are great, and personally i think that is a very original brand, if you  see the eifel frame is like an evolution of the darwin frame and the hollow flat cranks are the evolution of the ecoflat, and if you see some of they other products you can see that in the time that that parts were launched were very original, look at the downtown or the class-x that frames were very origina for their time, so the new parts are the evolution of some of their old parts and i think are great, i have a champagne fork and is great and too have an ecoflat pro cranks and too are great and are very strong, so i trust in st. martin so i want some of the new parts. so now maybe all the new parts will be an evolution of some of that we already have.

and for the question. where are the parts made?? i know that they produce their parts in taiwan.

so for everybody good luck and ride all day!! jejej  ;D :beer:

Almost every frame now has the same damn geometry that's geared towards midgets and people who don't know any better.

As far as rebranding, if KHE had any real problem with it I'm sure they'd use the proper channels to open a german can of whoop ass on St Martin.
