hey everyone..
i dont know much about this company or bike frame but i live in the urban city in the northeast and i found this frame at a local bike shop. this thing looks beefy! i was wondering if anyone had any info on this frame. it was a good weight too, with the bottom bracket adapter and headset reducer.

the website doesn't give much just a catalogue.

The shop guy said its a small, would this fit me? i am aroun 5'11" with like a 31 inch inseam. He said it would fit me well, considering the larger size for for someone like 6'2"+.

Also if anyone can comment on the frame in general, that would be great.
Can this thing tackle some dirt trails also? i need something thats an all arounder.
Where is it made?
can i run 26 in wheels?

and he quoted me for 500 dollars, is that worth it?

500 seems a little steep, but it is a boutique bike made in either england or france or something like that. it it huge in europe and personally i wouldn't mind one myself. they are solid bikes built by guys who actually throw it down.

i have no idea about the weight, but as far as i know, thay are able to accept 26" wheels...

They are made in France and are heavy. The new Toy is much more refined and a lot lighter. The BB is high to accept 24" wheels but can also run 26". Julien, Fred and Tito all used to kill it on these frames. The geometry was very progressive for when they came out.
It is a good bike although a bit dated and the new ones are much better. Here is a pic of one of the 24 team riders.

I don't mean the year, I mean the weight of the frame and the geo isn't the most progressive thing on the market anymore. It is a solid bike. I was just giving a little info about the brand. I have a 24 Pornking sitting downstairs. In Europe the 24 guys are some of the best and least serious. Oh, and it is the Toy 4 right? Those came out before 2007 but were sold until all were gone and now they are on the Toy 5 which is much lighter and more current street geo.

I once modded a Toy 4 to have 36.5mm chainstays with a 24" wheel. The BB is high so the bike almost feels better with 24s.
