The Colony GTiMk1 chromoly race frame is about to go into production with two top tube lengths of 21.3” and 21.6”. A shorter TT to entice those wanting a dirt jumper style frame that can handle race duties, and a longer TT for those racing that are looking for a race rig that embraces the heritage of the sport’s origins, whilst still being able to bomb down the modern hills and deal with the speeds of the latest BMX tracks.
Forecast to be available from July 2017. Colony have been manufacturing freestyle frames for over 10 years and have forged an envious reputation not only in their home country, but worldwide. Backed by the insurmountable knowledge of owner/rider Clint Millar, and based in Brisbane Australia, Colony has the capability to produce a small run of boutique frames and after realising that there is a demand out there in the race world for chromoly frames, Clint worked with veteran racer Bruce Morris and LUXBMX to develop a slick looking race rig.
