SIZE="2" FACE="Arial">, the bike industry’s leading e-commerce company, has introduced
three new models, including a single speed and the first commercial production titanium
BMX frame, the Miss Behavin’.
The 3Al/2.5V aerospace-grade titanium framed BMX retail
for $599, weigh 4.2 lbs., and will be available for the Christmas season. Geometry?
Hows about 74/71 head/seat angle, 21-inch top tube, 15-inch chainstays, and a 38-inch
With bigger wheels, Airborne is launching its Reynolds
853 steel hardtail and singlespeed bikes, the Black Widow and Sky Hag, respectively,
to compliment its existing titanium product line.
The $450 Black Widow (frame) and $500 Sky Hag (ditto) feature the same suspension-specific
geometry as the titanium Lucky Strike. Handpick every component through www.airborne.net,
and your bike comes delivered to your door. A Shimano LX-equipped Black Widow retails
for $1,000, while the standard complete Sky Hag package retails for $850. Both models
have several upgradeable options. Look for prices to drop significantly on all Airborne
MTB prices once Shimano’s 2000 Deore group becomes available.
