Pride-Street Frames - Russia keeping it lucrative

Pride-street, a Russian bike co that doesn't even have a website yet, but the hype is already there. Seems like everywhere you look, as long as you look outside US of A, everyone is talking about these upcoming frames. They dont seem to do anything to drastically different. Eventhough there are no official numbers yet, from what I gathered here and there its going to be about 4.2 lbs, nice and short, integrated hs, no seat clam = wedge post is a must. Both 24 and 26 versions will be available. But the best part? Handbuilt in Russia!

I have 4 bikes as of now, 2 of which are generic catalog brands, another 1, my freeride/dh Transition Bottlerocket - while not generic, is pretty popular, and 1 that is unique, uncommon, a hand full of people have them, a gem - my Tonic Fallguy. I only know of 1 other person here in immediate NYC who rides a Tonic. I've had it for over 4 years and as the time to upgrade is upon me, it appears that another Fallguy is not in the cards - there are none to be bought unless I want used or wait until spring for a Taiwan version - something I most definitely do not want.
Pride-street to the rescue! I hope.... and soon!

I took these photos from the super awesome VVCFORCE blog, which never fails to deliver some good big bike news - I've mentioned it before and will surely mention it again. Check it out - and more importantly, check out the photos of the frames.

Hammer and Sickle as a head badge? YES PLEASE! Hopefully its possible to get a 24 with that on. These frames are obviously unfinished in these photos, but it would be neat to get that clearcoated and ride it raw like that....
