New A Bad Thing products and complete bike
« on: December 04, 2010, 01:37:14 AM »
A bunch of updated A Bad Thing products have been posted on their blog lately. So far only details on the Slim Fit ST frame are available. It got a little heavier (1.6kg = 3.5lbs) and according to the guys it can take some light street riding and as many whoppers as you like.

Besides the frame they updated the fork, pegs and sprocket. WeŽll try to get further information. Two days ago a spyphoto of a complete bike was posted which you can see on the left.

is this the "V3" frame he is currently riding on, the 20.5TT? I'm curious to see how the 20.5TT feels, once its for sale.

Frame looks sweet.
All things in life are temporary. If going well...enjoy it, they will not last forever. If going wrong don’t worry, they can't last long either.

It's a shame its ABadThing, because this is exactly the type of frame id love to ride. Maybe in a 20" aswell....

19.0 and 20.5 with a 13" back end seem like the perfect options to offer frames in nowadays.

It got a little <strong>heavier</strong> (1.6kg = 3.5lbs) and according to the guys it can take some light <strong>street</strong> riding and as many whoppers as you like.

All that toptube and it still only weighs 3.5lbs!!! Nuts!!!!!!

If they know it can take some light street riding then they must have broken some riding light-middleweight street. . .

Take as many whoppers as you like. What a stupid comment... Any frame can take a countless number of perfect whoppers by a dialled pro rider. . .and nothing can last forever either!
