Dartmoor PUNCHER 700cmx
You probably already saw this somewhere else if you follow any other blogs but I decided to post it too because I dig this much more that many other freestyle/tricks frames out there at the moment.
Basically Puncher is a new soon-to-be released frameset by the Polish MTB/DJ/BMX company Dartmoor. Silesia Fixed "leaked" the first photo above and there should be more info at the Eurobike in September.
Anyhow, Puncher looks pretty cool to my eyes due to its clean and simple lines and if you check out info on their other current frames, things like "multiple butted, seamless Japanese Cr-Mo 4130 tubes", "one-piece hydroformed chainstay tubes for better stiffness and lower weight and perfect shape" and "internal gusset under head tube", which I would image will be features also found in the Puncher frameset, sound all pretty promising. That fact that it's made in the EU is also cool and help keeping the price bit lower for us here on the Old Continent.
