For 2013 Björn wanted to redesign his signature frame from the ground up and to start completely fresh we gave it a new name, too. Action Frame that is! We gave the Action frame an overall quick responding geometry, added a well rounded slim look to it and some fresh new colors. We achieved this by giving it a quick 75.5° head tube angle, a 11.6” BB height, a 13.5” center of dropout chain stay length and a 8.5” stand over. Top and Down Tube have been slimmed down and the chain stays have been widened to fit 2.3” tires easily.
“When Mankind offered me a signature frame it was clear for me that I had to tribute it to the Mellowpark in Berlin where I started to ride. It is definitely a strange feeling having people riding around with your Frame, but it also makes me really happy. A big shout out goes to Mellowpark and Mankind for the best frame I ever rode. Legends…”
