    Couldn’t resist.

    PENG rims are the best.

    The Sick bicycle customers should be really happy with those!

    Have you checked out the AM:FS FS frame?

    How many times when designing that frame did they think “ooh, that’s a bit flexy/snappy, better stick a brace in”? It’s practically a space frame!

    It looks quite a lot like a tubular version of the Orange single pivot design to me..

    I’m no expert on suspension design, but I thought exactly the same.

    .. except with a more regressive / falling leverage rate on the shock. With the right spring as a way to fit a longer shock in perhaps.

    Anyone else remember when Kesteven reviewed the C456 and declared it so stiff that you couldn’t ride down a rocky trail without stopping? Anything he ever says about hardtail stiffness needs to be viewed through that particular insane lens.

    I think the next one should just be “running a little temperature” or maybe “bit of a sniffle” certainly not fully sick

    Satisfaction Bikes – Rolling Stone Style

    Bought a Sick Bike’s tee shirt the other day and it turned up which was nice, I’m happy to support them and if the few quid they made from my purchase helps them deliver other items then I’m happy to be of service.

    In defence of the general consensus here, I don’t think anyone doubts their credentials as a clothing company.

    Bit 20th century isn’t it, judging a company by whether the products you paid for are delivered?

    I tend to consider that the bare minimum service to be honest. Nice would be something beyond that.
    Whilst far too uncool for a Sick bike I did recently buy a Bird. Their clothing range does seem a bit weak but they were good at the boring business of providing me a bike of the requested spec within a couple of days of sending them the order and money.Also managed “nice” in my eyes by providing good advice and initial setup help.

    My “it turned up” comment was a bit tongue in cheek to be fair, but I’m still pleased to help them make some profit to deliver some awesome bikes. No doubt they’ve made plenty of mistakes along the way but I like their intentions (or intentions as I see them) and I hope they succeed.

    to deliver some awesome bikes.

    You have read this and previous threads, yeah?

    Deliver seems misplaced.

    Deliver seems misplaced.

    That’s the intention of this thread. Tor warn…

    And in my opinion: a new bike company should worry about making bikes and not T-shirts. T-shirts are later in the game….

    Unless you convinced them to buy some bike, get them into the country and then sell them your hope may be misplaced….

    And when they do turn up up the paint will fall off in a light breeze and the welds will be shit.

    What would happen if you cut out the middle man, blagged one of Sick’s designs, tweeked it ever so slightly and got it made by Marino or similar for a fraction of the price?

    Might speed up delivery…

    Even if you copied the designs verbatim, it’s not like they can afford the copyright lawyers… I reckon that’s why they never put full geo details on the web, only indications like ‘slack AF’ and ‘this long’.

    It’s either that or they haven’t decided yet themselves.
