Help a small group of engineers implement their new method of bending sheet metal to create new and exciting bicycle frame designs.

Kickstarter Frame - Limited Edition!

Hello Kickstarter Supporters,

Many thanks for your generous support and well wishes. We are very thankful for all our backers!!

We’d like to show you our thanks by sweetening the deal a bit. If our goal is met and bikes are shipped out, we’ll guarantee this will remain an exclusive frame to Kickstarter. We may come up with different styles in the future but this style of frame will only be available for order through this campaign. Not only that, but we will also be able to offer a small (50cm), medium (56cm) and large (60cm) version of the frame. We couldn’t stand leaving some people out based on their height.

Over the past two months, we have been doing the best we can to get the word out and would like to thank everyone for the support. We brought our prototype bike to several local “hot spots” for bicyclists and had a great time riding, meeting people and talking about our frame. We would like to thank the reporters who interviewed us for the following publications, all to be available in July, 2012:

Snips Magazine: http://www.snipsmag.com/
De Ingenieur:http://www.deingenieur.nl/index.html
Bicycle Retailer: http://www.bicycleretailer.com/
Machine Design: http://machinedesign.com/
Travel Channel interview coming July 17th: http://www.travelchannel.com/

We appreciate all the interested donors and hope that the news continues to spread.

So, please pass the word and see if we can’t get another 80 people to go for the fully loaded donation!

Best Regards,


Ronin Gang

      Hello, I have already pledged $1000 but I am going to pledge another $1000 because I think you idea is so great. If your project goes ahead I would like one 50CM frame and one 56CM. My wife would be jellous if I had one of your bikes and she did not!
      I think it might help to drive traffic to yor site if it came up when one searched for Bikes. I find that I have to search for sheet metal biles to find it.
      Best wishes, you are obviously clever and creative people.
