Re: 2009 Unknown Bike Company Revolution

G'day, I can't 720 hop! But I bet thered be someone who could on this. It is well balanced both light in the front and in the back. I cannot describe what it is like to ride something this light!! You can almost hop invert on it? I just swapped my tempered frame(seeother bikes) to one of my team riders for his unknown in the bronze. So I have built up a daily driver n ill post it up soon...

Re: 2009 Unknown Bike Company Revolution

I have had 5 through my shop and only 3 are still alive but the other two snapped. One around the top tube at the headtube and the other at the seatstay where it joins the dropout. Ya can't be rough with em or they break! The Company UK Bike Co is no more and as one of the business partners has left. A new partner has joined and their company is now known as Total BMX. The forks, cranks and bars are all straight from a Taiwanese catalog and have just been branded Uk Bike Co. I should imagine the frame has not been engineered too well.
