Black Mountain Cycles frame pre-order special...

After much too long, my frames are going to happen. I got word that the frame maker has tubing and that they will (should) have frames finished by the end of July. Then they have to go for paint and decals, get boxed up and consolidated in an ocean container. I'm thinking that sometime around the middle of August 50 frames will be showing up with the remaining 50 showing up 30 days later (half road, half cross). Going to have to find some room in the shop to store 50 frames. Which leads me to the reason for this post.

Maybe I don't need to find a place to store as many as 100 frames in my small shop. Maybe I can pre-sell frames. After all, the idea is to bring the frames in to sell, why not get some, heck, maybe all, sold before they arrive so I don't have to find storage space for all the frames. Hmmm.

So, here's the deal, if folks pay in full for a Black Mountain Cycles road or cross frameset between now and the end of July (or probably before the frames show up on my doorstep) for $600, plus sales tax in California, I'll throw in one of two freebies.

Option 1: Free shipping anywhere in the lower 48 states. If you are out of that area, I'll contribute $25 toward shipping.

Option 2: If you don't need shipping or if you just like option 2, I'll throw in a Black Mountain Cycles t-shirt, pint glass, and water bottle at no charge with your frame order.

If you're on the fence or knew you were going to buy a frame anyway, now's the time to do it to get one of a couple of sweet deals. Payment options include paypal (blackmtncycles(at)gmail(dot)com, credit card (call me), money order, depending on the circumstance, I may even take a personal check, and cash is always welcome if you want to pay in person.

So there you have it. I must say, I'm just a bit giddy at the prospect of having my own branded frames available to sell. After many years of designing and selling bikes with other brand names on them, this is pretty darn cool. If folks have more technical questions on the frames, e-mail or call me. I'm working on some basic tech info that I'll post soon. Hey, it's Monday and I'm closed today. Time to go for a ride on my sweet, steel Black Mountain Cycles road frame!

Do you have the specs or descriptions of the 'cross bike somewhere?

Are frame specs available somewhere?


James said...

Your frame looks great and should fit the needs for most cyclists nicely. Will the geometry and specs remain the same for the road frames as originally posted?

Just posted some frame spec information. Let me know if there is anything else you guys need.

Are those ultegra wheels?

Those wheels on the road bike would have been Dura Ace 7800.
