RIP resurrection
« on: July 10, 2008, 11:19:43 AM »
Since the first edition of RIP frames were sold out rapidly and a lot of riders still wanted to get one they decided to drop a second limited edition of the RIP frame.

So, after coming back from death the bone white "RIP resurrection" has some new features:
- More butted tubing to lose weight in area’s where it’s not needed
- improved dropouts
- narrower chainstay tubes to avoid trouble with small sprockets
- the seattube is fluted to save weight.

The toptube length is 18.85" and the weight is 200g lower now with 1.9kg / 4.189lbs.

I'd give you a positive karma if there was a reputation system.

hello boys, 

i think they shouldve just made it the same weight cause my old one bent so bad and i was crushed cause i wanted that frame for like 3 months before i got it haha but it looks good, that sucks if bram doesnt ride flat anymore but maybe he'll whip ass in the street world

what do you guys think it will cost , about $350

I think Bram still rides, but he's still busy with the whole water thing in that third world country.
What I'm trying to say is he's not riding anymore right now, but hasn't officially 'quit' or anything.
