New frames from Airborne



Airborne Direct<FONT
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,
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.

    Greetings. I’m very interested in the AIRBORNE TITANIUM ATB (26″)FRAMES. My needs are off/ on road touring in any and all weather. (Think New Zealand) I’m 5′ 7′ with a 29.5″ inseam and
    a long torso. I like a slightly upright position, not way canted fwd. I need 2′ of standover- it’s not for jumping etc.
    My current bike fits perfectly (Seat tube 16.25 C to C) (17.5 C to Top)( Top Tube 22.5 from seat tube edge to ctr. headset)( Down tube 24 5/8) THIS IS A SERIOUS INQUIRY! THANK YOU
