Yes we’re pretty jealous to say the least. Here’s what Nico had to say about the bike…
I just wanted to share with you my Supreme. It’s a Supreme DH, but a bit special. I got this as a present for my birthday…30 years old…yes I’m getting old!
It’s a very special one as it has a full high polish finish. We can’t make them like this for production but as a sample it’s pretty cool. The “Phantom” logo stands for the crazy ideas I have with Chocho (Seb Picaudé) about different finishes, special parts…
I got the help from Chris Costello from The Hive, Mike Dutton from Spank, Arnaud Jacob & Jaycee from Bos, and Kevin Joly for the hubs. So I would just like to thank them. Oh, and thanks also to Sam Decout for taking the photos.
