If you’ve been paying attention, you’ll have noticed that the whole Ruff team mysteriously switched over to some new black frames that nobody has said anything about. Well me being the fixie journalist that I am, I am here to BREAK THE SILENCE AND BE THE WHISTLEBLOWER THAT YOU DESERVE! BIG FIXIE DOESN’T WANT YOU TO HEAR ABOUT THIS.
Jk, they’re just some new prototypes that we’ve all been testing out. What’s different? Tighter geometry and less weight mostly. Maybe some other technical jargon that I’m not sure about. I can confidently say this geometry is the best I’ve felt though and I’m excited for productions to run on them some day (who knows with the way production is these days). Anyways, here’s some pics of my bike I snagged while out in Atlanta, when it still looked new (ish).
More photos after the jump!
As far as other specs on this bike goes, not too much has changed.
- 6.5″ Ruff GC bars
- Ruff Can Rims
- Resist Tires (rare)
- Bombtrack hubs
- Prototype straps (keep an eye out)
One thing I did though was gear down a bit, going from my previous 30-10 ratio to now 28-10. It was time to stop making tricks harder on myself, lol.
