5/5 (2 Reviews)
Weight : 6.5lbs


Product Description

The MOLOSSE was designed to attack the street and rip the parc. It combines the same options as the MBF frame, but it's made with more affordable tubes and needs a little bit less machining time. This is the best bang for your buck$ in the high end urban/park frames market.

  • True Temper Verus HT Heat Treated & Double Butted tubes.
  • UTS (1): 150-185 ksi. / YS (2): 135-175 ksi
  • That's up to 250% stronger than most 4130 tubesets used in Taiwan.
  • The frame is just 6.5lbs!
  • Lazer cut and machined vertical adjustable drop outs.
  • Super stiff, super short rectangular chainstays.
  • Euro BB
  • OPTIONAL Disc and V-Brake mounts (24" and 26" wheels compatible). (NO CHARGE)
  • Standard Colors : Khaki, Burgundy
  • Custom Colors available, here's some examples : RawClear / TransGreen / TransBlue / SmokeClear / White / ChocoMilk / etc.

    Strengths:    Super strong, super finish. I have the 2009 model with BMX spacing (rear hub 110mm) and bottom bracket (Mid), means you can build it up with awesome bmx gear. I have 24" specific frame and this thing rides like a bmx, but still "relaxed" enough for mtb dirt jumps and the like.

    Weaknesses:    None at all really.

    Bottom Line:   
    This would have to be the ultimate street/park ripper. The geometry is just something else. It definately sits in between a 20" bmx and a 26" mtb. It's so easy to flick around and just awesome for tricks. The chromoly is so sweet and compliant and super stiff at the same time. Just so much feel to it. If you ride street/park/DJ's and you can afford one, get it! Sooo much better than the other offering out there.

    Strengths:    Geometry, aesthetics, quality, attention to detail, customer service

    Weaknesses:    weight

    Bottom Line:   
    Saw Pictures on the bike 3 years ago when they went to interbike and was immediately impressed. I contacted them and told them what i wanted and received exactly what i was hoping for. Took awhile to set the bike up and ran into some problems but they resolved them for me right away. This has now been my third season on the frame and it has been great. The geometry and design was years ahead of everyone else and other companies are just catching up now. Im sad to see that for 09 they will no longer be making the same frame instead the molosse name will go to a pincher based ht with 14mm drop outs and gyro tabs. Its too bad that people couldn't see the detail and great machine work done in the frame and cough up the extra money and buy one over a pincher.
