The Spring 2011 Pelican’s are due to arrive here at BDB mid May. They are the same geometry and frame specifications as the most recent batch. Look HERE for the geometries and specs.
We are using a new fork crown since the Pacenti PBP crown has gone the way of the Dodo Bird. Instead of the PBP crown, we are using the Grand Bois lugged fork crown. The fork crowns measure a nice 53mm wide, inside of blade to inside of blade. We will also be using the Kaisei Imperial Oval fork blades in conjunction with the fork crowns. These fork blades add a nice bit of extra suspension to the fork and have a very elegant taper to them. I have been riding these blades on my custom Ebisu for the past 5 years and am very happy with them. Here is an image of the crown and blades.
The price remains the same at 1160 plus tax. We are ordering a size run plus some doubles in the popular sizes. To get in line for one in your size we require a 400 dollar non-refundable deposit. If you cannot make into the shop, give us a call to place your deposit. The number is (415)431-9627, we are open 11-7 weekdays and till 5pm on the weekends.
We will contact you once the frame has arrived and when we have faced and chased the headtube and bottom bracket, as well as prepping the tubes with Framesaver. The frame will ship once the balance and shipping has been paid.
We're pretty excited by this newest batch of Pelicans. We think these will be the best looking and riding frames yet! Stay tuned for more updates and images of the frames and forks built up!
