Your shop was full of KTM's I noticed Mboy, are u discounting now everyones waiting for the 2015 models?
Good few months away yet, and whilst some of the range is all new for 2015, some it looks like are just cosmetic and spec changes. Always a deal to be done to a good customer though if you're asking...
The chain looks too long on the first bike.
& it appears to have one wooden spoke
1x11 XTR by the looks of it, so the cassette probably necessitates that long a chain.
The wooden spoke is the in trend for 2015 so I'm told. Start whittling now!
+1, they're perfectly ok, but look like generic carbon frames with stickers on. Which I imagine is just what they are...
It's a huge amount more than a marketing exercise and buying someone else's open mould frame and slapping some stickers on. Frames are all designed in house by KTM, then made in the Far East, before shipping to Austria for painting and finishing and being assembled into bikes. Finish on these bikes is top notch, I've been in the trade a number of years, you won't see a better finished Trek, Giant, Specialiazed or Merida say than you would a KTM. They're up there in terms of quality. Quickest bikes to PDI ever, which if you're a mechanic in a bike shop, is a god send!
hink more old giant moulds, tweaked. and with the latest fibre available
There's a lot of TCR about the Revelator if you will, but there's enough unique features to it to mark it out as being an individual design. Geometry is very close to a TCR too, but little touches like the seat tube meeting the BB shell forward of its centre line, to allow a 405mm chainstay but keep clearance for bigger tyres too, are very unique. The replaceable mech hanger is also a unique part too (don't worry, spares readily available), and the tapered head tube is in the vein of most of the newer aero road bikes in that it only tapers to 1 1/4" at the bottom rather than 1 1/2".
There's a pinion hardtail
Well spotted that man! I hadn't picked up on that one... Ooooooooh... Can't wait!
