Joe Breeze, niche name. Really. About as niche as Gary Fisher. Or Keith Bontrager would be if he was still frame-building. Oh wait, I get it. He’s niche because he does hardtails.
No, he’s cool cos he was inventing it back in the day.

bent tubes = 110% of WRONG, Fine on sussers, not on HT’s.
Bent stays make for a more forgiving/shock absorbing frame, ala Scapin. It looks to me like that fork is one of the reduced rake jobbies developed by Fisher so the bend in the down tube may be there so the fork doesn’t smash into it. The bends on that frame look like they will serve some purpose. Unlike the bends on an old frame by a certain wooden plank company that obviously served no purpose as the newer version is far less swoopy.Posted 8 years agomessiahMember
Joe didn’t do the sloping top tube thing so much back in the day which is the main reason I bought a Rocky Mountain Blizzard in 1993 instead.
I did a race friends Breezer thunder when the Blizzard was broken though – lovely bike.
If I were shopping for an XC race bike that would be near the top of my wish list. I think it looks stunning.Posted 8 years ago
