2007 Ambiente Bikes Prospero 24
Prototype frame and was the first one made.
I decided to build some framesets to my own specification as there weren't too many freestyle specific 24" cruiser frames when this project started in late 2006. Based on the old 80s frames with twin top tubes. Torkers and Haros were always my favourites although I never owned any back in the day. Therefore, old school influence was combined with new school geometry and technology including an integrated 1 1/8th head tube, mid bottom bracket, removable gyro tabs, 990 style brake mounts and 14mm axles slots. It also has built in cable guides and the ability to run either a single or dual cable setup without the need for the added London Mod setup. This frame is the prototype and the differences between this and the production versions are pretty minor. The threaded cable guide doesn't have the extra tube as the guide was thick enough, the slots on the forks are at more of an angle and the chainstays are slightly closer to allow a bit more clearance from the cranks. Parts list for my setup includes Profile cranks with ti spindle, Fly Bikes pedals, stem, headset and brakes, S&M bars, Sun Rhyno Lite XL rims with G Sport Marmoset front hub and Odyssey Hazard rear with ti axle, Odyssey Aitken seat, Shadow Conspiracy seatpost, Animal seatpost clamp, Primo grips, Snafu cables and detangler. I have raced this, ridden in parks, around the streets. It's a great jumping bikes and I find it suited to dirt jumping and the like rather than real street riding.
