    Looks a lot like the I Track suspension bike, has this been taken on by Craftworks? or am I getting things muddled up.

    not too sure about the "aussie manufacturer" bit, as i always thought Rob Crafter designed them here, but they were all made O/S (Tywaaan)
    great bikes though..i have had 4 models over the years

    Akin to calling Yeti, Specialized, Trek and Santa Cruz "American manufacturers"

    Think I would of preferred a single pivot bike. It looks like it will be a good bike though. I wonder how price comes in.

    Hi Guys and Girls,

    Let us know if you have any questions and we will do our best to get back to you ASAP.

    Update: This bike is currently in production – eg we are cutting tubes next weeks with the CNC parts rolling in as I write this. We expect the first frames to be available in April/May and will release all the spec and pricing in the coming week.

    The ENR is the start of a collaboration with i-track suspension which is also a home grown company from Adelaide that was founded by Hugh McLeay.

    The ENR is positioned of more of a technical AM/Enduro race bike that will run next to the FRX series which the V4 version is being developed at the moment – there will be a single pivot bike still!

    To clarify, Craftworks is an Australian company, however as mentioned above – made in Taiwan to our exact spec by the same partner we have worked with for 19 years now. For further measure we are present during the whole production process to make sure things are right – even though we don’t need to do this.

    A bottle will fit in the front triangle too.

    All the best from the Taipei Bike Show.

    Kain Lee Galliver

    Excellent news Craftworks, I had a bit of a roll on Hugh's DH bike and have seen him out on the all mountain one, I like 'em. Good luck with this, can't wait to see the finished product.
