Separable Pino frame?

Beitragvon bengutman » So Mai 18, 2008 4:49 am

Pardon me for posting in English. I do not speak German.

I have heard a rumor that Hase is developing a new Pino frame that separates into two pieces for packing for travel. Does anyone know whether this is correct, when it will be available, and any other details (e.g., will it be steel, titanium, or aluminum)?

Thank you.

Yes, that is true, but that is all I know.

From what I have heard (from Larry of Mt. Airy Bicycles), sometime in 2009 the Cr-mo steel Pino frame will be replaced with an aluminum bolt-together version.

my pino dealer in Belgium has learnt from Hase directly that
1) it would be for sale from somewhere around the end of this year
2) it would be aluminium
3) first they were planning to replace the current steel version
but now they decided to let the steel version in production since
this new seperable version is going to be more expensive and
they like to keep the pino available at the current price also

Hello !!!
My French dealer did not know about this separable frame, but he was really surprised to hear about an increased price : moving from CroMo to Aluminium often means a displacement of the manufacturing country.
Are the Aluminium frames from Hase produced in Asia and the steel ones in Germany ?
If someone knows the answer for the same question but about HP-velo bikes I'm also interested.

Edit : has someone ever heard about S&S couplers added on a Pino ?

I have seen pictures of an S&S-coupled Pino online. The framebuilder Stephen Bilenky in Philadelphia, PA, USA told me that he has retrofitted a Pino with S&S couplers. With two couplers it fits in a standard bike box; with four couplers it will fit in an airline-legal suitcase. (Bilenky also makes an S&S-coupled Viewpoint tandem, which is similar to a Pino.)
