This is a candid, insider view to the development of a new frame design. Sam Whittingham, designer and builder at Naked, wanted to experiment with what's extreme for a well-rounded trail bike. This is his first prototype in that line.
A show in a show, in a show: that's the artisan section of the Vancouver Bike Show, and it's a small handful of bicycle makers at that. Small maybe, but cycling is a big thing in BC, and their framebuilders are world famous with good reason.
