Just got the final 3D files through for the Ariel prior to my visit out to Taiwan next week. The final sample frame parts are being machined as we speak.
Here's the updated tapered headtube complete with CNC machined Saracen logo.
Updated swingarm CNC plate to increase stiffnes, save weight and allow easier access to the linkage bushings.
The shock driver Y linkage is now a su..
Whoa... here she is... the "Beast"...
Here's our tribute to the salt-of-the-earth, honest-to-goodness, White Van Drivers everywhere!!

We met up with Ed at Dirt a couple of months back when they had the first UK ride of the Ariel prototype.
This is from their mag:
Ariel is now in the final stages of development and we are currently on target for first delivery Feb 2010.
The nice folks over at bikeradar have recently reviewed our brand new Zen 2.
While I'm not one to cry over spilt milk and take reviews with a pinch of salt, some of my thoughts...
The fork might not be to their liking but the bike was Ã‚Â£300 less than the others on test, and it features QR15.
We've been working on 3 new platforms which we previewed first prototypes to the UK press Ã‚Â last week.

I'll be posting some details of the new kit but until then check-out Dirt, Singletrack and Bikeradar.
