Quick look: Dialled Ti Alpine
The Postie just dropped off this super pimp looking Dialled Ti Alpine hardtail frame.
The Bike Chain (www.thebikechain.co.uk) have got together with Dialled Bikes (www.dialledbikes.com) to produce two super bling Ti Alpine prototype frames a 16" and an 18". We've got the 16" which we'll be building up and testing soon.
If there's is enough genuine interest from you lot then they will go into production.
Hit up Mark at email@example.com if you're serious about wanting one.
The featherlight Ti Alpine tipped the Dirt Office scales at just 1.54kg.
Me and the original Alpine at the Megavalanche...happy days!
