KILROY – Teaser I of IV Nov 12, 2009

KILROY – Teaser I of IV from Gorilla Bicycles on Vimeo.

I love this video. The new Kilroy looks so much better than the earlier prototypes. I know Wonka’s in love with it. Good job Gorilla!

Description:

After slamming and breaking our prototypes in public and in front of cameras, we finally started production of the Kilroy frame. The tests that Wonka ran lead to the conclusion that we had to manufacture a tube set just for this frame, with particular reinforced parts to absorb and handle the stress of the jumps. Together with Columbus we decided to change the alloy in order to avoid very thick and heavy tubes and gain in strength nevertheless. We are proud to present the first freestyle frame in Niobium steel. The Columbus Niobium steel is a special micro alloyed steel with Manganese, Chrome, Nickel, Molybdenum and Niobium that is designed to provide superior mechanical properties

We went to Italy for the launch of the production and invited Wonka to join us and get involved into the process of creation. Thanks to Renaud Skyronka for filming this monumental happening.

Follow all the 4 teasers (weekly updated) and you will reach the whole movie in the fifth week from now on.

Enjoy.

    Yesterday’s a dream…
    I face the mornin’…
    Cryin’ on a breeze…
    The pain is callin’, oh Killroy…

    Well, you came and you gave without takin’…
    But I sent you away, oh Killroy…
    Well, you kissed me and stopped me from shakin’…
    And I need you today, oh Killroy….
