Here’s the products from issue 181. Once again Fraser has been on hand to review everything and keep us in the loop. Some amazing stuff in here, the Mutiny frames are looking particularly tidy..
S&M Bikes have released this new colour way of their already popular ATF frame. It is a brilliant looking translucent rasta paint job with Washington DC 70’s punk band – Bad Brains inspired graphics. The ATF comes with the S&M quality made supertherm tube set, which also has a tapered and butted top tube and they’ve strengthened the downtube to make it dent resistant. There’s huge tyre clearance on this frame since it has tapered rear stays and the rear end is finished off nicely with heat-treated micro dropouts. This probably will be a slightly heavier frame than most people will ride these days weighing in at 4.7lbs, but it’s built to take some punishment and looks amazing too!
