Great news for all Isaac fan 8)

    Isaac is alive and kicking

    What do Lance Armstrong and top brand Isaac have in common? Both are enjoying a successful revival this year
    – except the innovative brand Isaac has managed to consolidate its top position. Good news for professional cyclists
    and cycling fanatics who make the highest demands of these full carbon bike frames. The latest range for 2010 will be
    presented at the upcoming BikeMOTION event in Utrecht.

    Mention the name Isaac and the most enthusiastic cycling fans in the racing segment will prick up their ears.
    The brand has won renown in a short space of time with its innovative concept. The physicist Sir Isaac Newton is
    the great inspiration behind Isaac and his ideas on gravity and mechanics, combined with his famous laws of physics,
    are the foundations for its designs. All with the ultimate aim of making frame and cyclist one, in order to enable optimum
    performance. This challenge is expressed in ultra-light frames, meticulously assembled from various types of carbon.

    INNOVATIVE FULL CARBON FRAMES
    Isaac will be making a stir during the coming season with – what else? – an innovative collection of full carbon frames offering
    improved performance characteristics in respect of the natural forces which Newton dared to defy. Thanks to their sublime
    aerodynamics and feather-light weight, the new generation of Isaac frames take the fight to these elements of nature.
    At the same time, Isaac proves that light and slim can also be robust. In short: Isaac is “alive and kicking”.

Let's see:

Innovative carbon frame = BB30 BB shell, tapered head tube, massively oversized carbon tubes etc....

How many high-end carbon fiber bike manufacturers does this world need?

Rant off...

I will be there at the Bikemotion, and both I and a friend of mine are in contact with one of the related company's. I'm going to get as much information as I can.

Einstein is dead, but the Albert is alive and kicking.

Introducing the Albert. While ALL other high end bike frames rely on Newtonian mechanics, the Albert is the first, and to date the only, frame to take advantage of Einstein's General relativity. By opening up worm holes in the space-time continuum, the Albert can allow the rider to not only win a crucial stage, but indeed to finish before the stage has even started*. The Albert: Be There, or B EMCsquare.

* Note: Trans-warp drive crank required to drive through worm holes. Availability Q1 2010.


On a side note, it is interesting that this year's BikeMOTION will mark the 3 year anniversary of the announcement that the volume production of the M5 crank was only 3 months away.

I just tried and failed to draw a single parallel to Lance's comback and that of Isaac :lol:

For starters I don't think they both retired at the top of their game.


And the last time I saw a product with a sheet over it and big claims was a supercarbon wheel, designed with secret defense department technology.


Still I hope the best for them and hope they make a better go this time around. I think they had some pretty good stuff before.

I'm really looking forward to this!! I hope their new frames look just as good as their last ones! And I also hope they haven't changed too much in the geometry.

and for you guys who is going to BikeMotion, I'm looking forward to see some pictures! :popcorn: :beerchug:

Of course, we all know that Isaac used too much carbon in their head tubes to achieve its enormous lengths. That's why they went bust. Let's hope the new frames don't have this problem and save a few grams while they're at it. :wink:

oh, that is good news, because the geometry of isaac frames is very special and fits perfectly for me. i hope they wont change this to much.

i am not planing to buy a new frame at all, because i am absolutely contented with my 2007 sonic frame.

but its good to know-in case of an accident or damage-that those frames are available again.
sorry vor mai bed englisch!

I'm working on getting pics to post them here.

I really am!

Jipperd has a few though.
