The end of KGB
« on: October 11, 2009, 02:23:00 PM »
Martti just made a post in the Ground Tactics forum about the end of KGB. Martti and Viki will go seperate ways in the future. According to Marttis post it was a business decision and "this all is happening in good terms and we will remain as good friends".

Sad news for flatland but nevertheless respect to Martti and Viki for bringing us innovative products and ideas in the last couple of years! Let´s see how the KGB story is going to continue ..

Man that is the sh*tiest news iv'e heard in a minute,KGB straight up is the best in my opinion,I have rocked some frames in the past and nothing is more flatland than the 08 Superpower better than the 09 for sure alot stronger,much better ass end,f*cking killer frame I better buy me a nother frame from Pat at FF,sorry to hear that news,good luck to Martti and Viki both,I loved everything about KGB and so does 3/4 of INDY crew.For anybody that has rocked the 09 with out the 08 test is missing out I'm 190 lbs and love the sh*t out of all of my 08's.Man it was a good run of frames THANKYOU KGB for pushing the limit.   Peace ARMSTRONG

Sorry to hear KGB is ending. I remember when they first came out there was some incredible buzz around all of their products and they made some truly badass parts. Good luck to Martti and Viki!

So lets get this understood ... it was "KGB - Kuoppa Gomez Bikes" ......

Martti has left KGB so it will become "GB - Gomez ByHimself"

Martti will continue on with "Ground Tactics - AKA GT".


Am I the only one who see's a sense of humor / irony in this?
I really hope the next frame to come out from GB is called the Benidorm.

Honestly speaking i might not be using KGB frames or even a 100% KGB supporter last few years, but since i started my own research of Flatland skills from some KGB videos from 2005 to 2007 i feel both of them are also consider as Flatland skill successor. I manage to see the difference of their Flatland styles and concept.

Both of them are incredible in Flatland -_- -_- -_-

Respected riders.
