Shane Badman about his Colony frame
« on: January 08, 2008, 07:41:38 AM »
I joined the Colony team in October 2007 and was given the honour and opportunity to design my own frame.  I put together all the things that have worked for me over the years into a design and with help from Clint Millar at Colony, "The Cube" was born.  I´ve been testing it since October to now and it has been perfect in every way. It´s light, strong and fully functional.  I´m riding the 18.85"TT model, but other options will be available come mid 2008.  With Simon having just joined the team, together we will be designing pegs, sprocket, 2 piece cranks, stem and a flatland specific pivotal seat & post combo along with Simon´s signature bars.

A short promo video for my frame, "The Cube" can be found here:

I have a feeling Simons signature bars will be S&M castillo bars. Just a hunch since that's all he's ridden for the last 10 freaking years.

Good stuff Badman!!!

To be fair to Tjs comment, all I ve ever heard Shane talk about since ive known him is why isnt anyone doing a flatland pivotal seat, know he has the chance to go through it, looking forward to seeing the end result of this.

See you at the lab tonight badman!!

I've been dreaming about this for years also and brought it up for discussion on the Aussie forum numerous times. Looks like its a global want/need.

Nice riding Badman. I've heard of Clint Millar before, isn't he a tech street rider?

please please please please please please please.
conceder making a mid size stem.

The Colony street stem, IMHO is one of the nicest designed stems out there but is 10mm too long for me. If by any means anyone at colony is reading this and is able to get me a stem at 10mm shorter (42mm offset) I would gladly buy one direct (colour not important - if any).
