514 - UKBikeCo

Just spotted this whilst "Doing my uni work" - new company floating about called UK Bike Co.. Seen here is one of the bikes they've built up, feat. their own frame, bars and fork. New Tierra/Midnite Moonlite/Black-Eye-Bikes Killorado? Kane Hennessy's proto frame:





That frame weighs in at a nutso 3.4lbs, but they also do this taller version (With longer back end) that weighs in at 3.7lbs:



Intriguing. Apparently this is gonna feature in the next Ride, so keep your eyes on there/here/wherever.

Rode with Ryan Winterbottom today (sponsored by UKBC) and he has this frame. It really is an absoloute stunner, really light, really solid feeling, but also very controlled. His bike weighed an impressive 20lbs with no TI. One point though, he didn't run pegs because the drop outs are absoloutely miniscule.
