    Exclusive: Sam Hill's 2013 Team CRC/Nukeproof Pulse frame

    Just found this and it looks very very nice indeed! Can see the Deemax and Blackbox gear setting it off already, hopefully its podium bound.

    seriously horrendous labelling. I hope they paying Sammo a ****load of do$h, or rather, I hope, as one of the premiere, formost DH proponents the world has ever known (yes, rabid fanboism laced descriptions there :P ), that he charged them big BIG money to go around dressed as someone's personalised advertising clown. Even with the team kits listed on the UCI website, it would appear TLD didn't get much artistic freedom. Subtlety and style is not CRCs concern it would seem.

    Yeah, much worse than the subtle fluorescent green bike he spent his best years on.

    I dont have problem with that design. I usually like designers works. Most common people have very conservative taste and im not surprised by comments.

    It does have a little semblance to the Swedish flag.

    Overall, not bad if the CRC logo on the top tube were removed or at least reworked.

    you dont get it aye....Advertising clown,you mean sponsored rider at the highest level where companies pay him lots of money to do a job and in return they want EXPOSURE . Sponsors need to be seen. and these bikes will get photos and stand out in them under sam and all the team.
    If the bikes looked subtle it wouldn't work as a piece of advertising.
    Transcend can you chime in here ,surely a brighter bike works out for you and the industry better?

    Marketing and branding doesn't rely solely on slapping logos and URLs everywhere. That is a truly horrendous design and it looks like the kind of **** I had to do, for clients who have their heads so far up their own asses that they wouldn't know good design if it was standing right in front of them.

    Should've used comic sans for the lettering to really whip the 'designers' into a frenzy.

    Maybe I'm still hungover but I think the frame actually looks good. I did only take 3 marketing classes in college though, most of which I skipped or was hungover. Jesus, am I an alcoholic?

    How dare a company that's in the business of selling bikes advertise on their race bikes!
