Prototype news from Dobermann

DOB head honcho Alain Lavoie sent along some news of their latest project:

Heres some pix of our short travel single speed “slope-style” frame.

– The frame as 3.5″ of travel and a 2:1 shock ratio.
– 400mm chain-stays
– The pivot is based around a 19mm BMX Spanish BB. The BB axle is the swing arm axle at the same time, very stiff, it also helps for bearing life since they make full rotation when you pedal.
– Right now that proto frame weighs in at 6.5 LBS, shock included!
– Its madeĀ from 4130 steel
-This version is still a bit rough, the drop outs and shock mounts
were literally handmade.
-Expect to have more clean details once we get the lazer cut production
parts (it will also help the weight to go even lower).
