Not A Type 6!!!

I just looked the pictures closer. That is not the Type 6. That is the proto Super D bike that has Sunday type geometry.

The Type 6 that was at Interbike was supposed to be orange with a Fox 36 on the front. No split seat tube.

The Type 6 is supposed to be front derailluer compatible and will have a Maxxle 135mm rear end. Acccording to they guy at I.H. I just talked to the bikes are expected in around August of next year with framesets to follow a month or two later. :(

They told me the story behind the frame, but I can't remember the deal anymore. :rolleyes:

There is no way a front der is going on that frame unless it were an E-type. Then again, if it is a 4x frame, you wouldn't expect one on there anyway. I think I remember the tire clearance being tight. That is the 2.3 Timberwolf iirc.

If it matters, it says "Type 6" right on the downtube. :)

That bike looks like the mini-Sunday IH were trying to build for Sam Hill so he could race it at Sea Otter - but the project was delayed.

I've seen pics of the pre-production type 6 - and like Salami said, that's not it.
