Sorted... next step, prototype testing!
Titanium frame, stable trail geometry yet ready to race and be nimble on the trails. Those are the goals, lets see how it playout in reality.
12x142 rear, Threaded Bottom Bracket, tapered headtube, a little slacker up front and designed for 650b Wheels. This Loic prototype hopefully will deliver on the #ChargeHard philosophy of Number Four Cycles.
The first prototype will be in the LOIC line-up. A 650b Hardtail designed to be race ready, but also set to #ChargeHard under an aggressive rider. What this means is a stable and planted bike at speed, but nimble enough to handle tight trails and tight switchbacks.
Geometry is being finalized and the prototype will be produced over the winter in preparation for riding and racing in the summer of 2016.
