After countless requests to bring the Caveman frame back into production we have listened and come through with the goods. On this batch of frames the graphics and styling give a nod to one of the originals from the past as some of you will be quick to point out. With it's bold design and brightly coloured appearance we took Mike Escamilla's idea and ran with it. Resulting in a tasteful reincarnation of a favourite classic the WAL (Wilkerson Airlines).
After the big changes at FBM, one of their many wildmen Seamus Mckeon, recently made the move over to UNITED to get things moving in a new direction. He's got a welcome edit in the works but meantime here's a wild selection of recent random clips to give you a taste of what's to come.

READY TO HIT THE BOOST BUTTON? When you're going mac ten at a take off you want to know you're in safe hands, the boost is coming and you want to go all out! Jump on board a Knightsbirdge and sail your way through the session without any second guess.
The ultimate boost weapon went back to the workshop and partook in some surgery! Now coming with more rounded top tube sizes from the 21.1, 21.4 and 21.6! This blasting beast is well equipped! With welded lugs, lowered chain stays for extra brake clearance and a newly embossed head tube badge. The graphics took on a simplified approach and we think this really sets the Knightsbridge v2 off!
Available in Blue Groove, Flat Brown and Gloss Black.
