About

So what's the point of Bake Frames? 

The idea behind Bake Frames essentially came about from trying to imagine the perfect frame. Wherever and whatever you're skating, there are always improvements to be imagined; the ground's too rough, if only you had bigger wheels! You're too slow, a flat setup would sort that out! You have four big wheels down but you can't do a royale, and you get upset and wish you had a H-block. We decided to stop just thinking about these things and make it real with our first product, the Power frame - a 72mm flat frame with a large grind space. 

Cool. What are you going to do with my money? 

Manufacturing a frame, we learned very quickly, is expensive. Our initial designs and 3D prototypes came out very well and very quickly, thanks to the design and engineering expertise of Andy Birch and Alex Brunton. But now we've got something we know will work, we have to get it made. This requires the holy grail of blade companies everywhere - a mould. 

That's where most of the money will be going. Simply getting a mould cut so we can start baking. 

Extra costs include being able to get the fresh goodies out to stores and bladers around the world, and making sure we can send them with the necessary bits - like bolts! We also plan to offer a fully set-up frame, complete with eight 72mm wheels and bearings, so we've got to buy those too. 

You guys are my heroes. Who are you? 

The company currently consists of four people, and is paying none of them. They're all strictly in it for the love, so you don't need to worry about lining anyone's pockets. All the funding goes straight into the project. Andy Birch and Alex Brunton are the engineering experts, PhD and honours students respectively. Our film, photography and editing is handled by Jordan Jones who has deep roots in blading media. The fourth corner consists of universal ambassador Ash Gavin who is busy making sure you've heard of us and that we haven't missed anything important.

Amazing. You're obviously going to get pledged millions. What are you going to do with the excess? 

The one thing we will not be doing with any unexpected extra money is pocketing it. That's not how we plan to treat the good people of Kickstarter. We'll be coming up with new and exciting rewards for pledgers, depending on how early we overshoot the target. Most importantly, extra funding will be kneaded straight into the next line of products, because we have no plans to be a one-hit wonder! We are already pre-heating the ovens for a 60mm Flat frame and a 84mm Commuter frame.

Risks and challenges

Despite our absolute confidence in our product and how much you're going to like it, there are things about this project that make us nervous. But with your support, there's no reason any of them should become actual problems.

We'll be using the best possible manufacturing facilities with an excellent reputation to minimise the risk of production delays and all our hardware and extras to go with the frames are coming from excellent and trusted sources.

We will be keeping you informed of all the developments through this page, and remember you drive this project so let us know your comments on our Facebook page.

It's only through your support that we can ensure that the product is as good as it can be. Support Bake Frames.
