Mr zenta (owner of quamen) is down with illness, all new quamen projects are on hold.
can try 'dig it bmx' Japan for last year models, or fenix's- made by quamen ( very thin chainstay tubings but fairly light too) or try advertising in the 'wanted' section.

go get some metal shelving from home depot/lowes and duct tape it together in the shape of a bike. you'll save money and get a very similar product. the stores will also not treat you like sh*t if you break it and ask for a refund to, which you won't get with quamen lol.

Wow, bad blood still runs deep i see.
 you and martti  should learn to let-go some...
other than the cypher and g4 or is it g5, most quamen frames are alright, with their moblize crank arms being superb.
 Not the hugest fan of their "holey" style, but hey, them parts sure are light (and very collectable)

I have a brand new still in bubble wrap black g9 18.7" that I'd consider selling.
It has removable mounts too.  Don't know how much I want for it but I'm in Australia so postage will cost you..

God bless Zenta with his illness and treatments, but why the f*ck would you shelf a company just bc one guy gets sick? For the record, they were fantastic with my warranty claim.

They dicked me around on every single part I ever bought from them. It was like an 8 year streak of them treating me and people I knew like sh*t. f*ck them.

lol bike collectors. f*ck bike "collectors" too.

I do agree with Metal though, regardless of how much I hate Quamen, I wouldn't wish a debilitating illness on anyone and I hope he can recover alright.

Some people have other hobbies rather than sitting in front of the mirror all day thinking of ways to big themselves up on the interweb

Express postage to the states is about $70.
If you want it let me know. I can show pics if it in wrap too if you want.

They sold for $370us new so this is cheap I reckon. I accidentally ordered the wrong length and never sent it back. So I've had it sitting there. I'm currently riding an 18.2 and love it.

#And it is a euro BB frame too!

says the guy who says he builds bikes to get attention from people on the internet. I personally have and lots lots of hobbies that I've worked very hard at. Riding is only one of them.
