As far as I'm concerned they have some business difficulties, they are under administration, have heart about new investors ect. Hopefully will be back in business.
It would be very sad if this boutique firm went out of business, the frame itself it's really stunning.

I ride for Columbia-Bikefood mtb team, we are sponsored by Pronghorn. They have recently had new investment so are out of administration and looking for UK shops to sell their bikes.... There is a press release from them on our website. I should be getting one by the end of this year and cant wait! the other guys in the team who have theirs already wont stop talking about them!

And that is a very nice build too!

Thanks.
I haven't been riding this bike for long time, fallen in love with road one.
But few days ago took the dust off, now waiting till my fractured collarbone is healed properly.

Any way,

Your mean it's lighter???
That would make sense, I've been always disappointed seeing my parts being heavier than others' :)

Which component/s you think are under/overstated?
Every single one, as stated in detailed list, was weighted on the 0.1g scale. few times.
The only things not included in the total weight are: air in the tires and the grease used when mounting the parts. Unless you got another idea where the extra weight might have come from?
What would be the reason for stating something that can be verified so easily, if you are familiar with the ww world, of course?

Have been riding with this angle on different frames for years.
Building this one 2 years ago, I tried different settings an and up with that what you can see.

I'm not saying your making up the weights, but putting it on a hanging scale will show the true weight. For my ride I measured the weight using a post office scale. Everything came to about 20.5lbs. I buy a Feedback Sports Hanging scale, and it reads 21.5lbs. Your scale could be off. Just saying.

How do you like your fork? I'm thinking about getting one? The biggest question is servicing, and supply of parts.

pretty mental frameset, not to my liking but thats why I dont own one :D

I have my reservations on the weight also! I reckon on the scales its 21lb

These weight claims mean nothing without a scale reading anyway.
