KH 26 Frame?

Yes - some select primary importers (those who choose to participate) will get bare frames to develop a custom powdercoat program. Bare frames aren’t available for retail sale.

Internationally, there is a world of difference between this core newsgroup and the mainstream in terms of familiarity with good unis and the sport in general. Bikeshops really want to have “that blue” to be comfortable that someone walking in the door will recognize the uni across the shop as the best one. Having a custom program will hopefully provide some boutique options to the core group that want it, while still keeping the mainstream distributors happy.
