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 wheelbase.
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.
