MOSCOW, Russia (21 February 2000)–Lightweight magnesium road and MTB frame builder, LITECH, has signed a contract with the US bicycle firm MARIN for the production of 300 frames per year. The frames will be supplied exclusively. Noteworthy is that the 300 frames a year takes up all but a portion of LITECH’s annual capacity.
Initial production will focus on hardtail mountain bike frames for Marin’s Elite line. The frames will retail for approximately US$600.
In the near future LITECH will also produce dual suspension mountain bike frames using Marin’s design. Currently these frames are only in a prototype stage. (MS)
