|1991||Founded in 1991 by Marton Szilagyi in Hungary. OG stands for Original Gypsy.
www.original-gypsy.com: The OG Bike Co. is the first and only riders owned Hungarian freestyle company. The OG Bike Co. has been established by Marton Szilagyi in the early '90s, and from the year 2000 we started producing high quality flatland frames, the original Griptapegs and short stems beside the famous Trick Stars video series and clothing.
|2005||OG Gypo2 Frame feature integrated headset, spanish bb plus angled seattube trimming. The frame weighs only 2.27kg/5lbs, but as you probably know, this means less (2.12kg/4.67lbs) when put together since the integrated headset is much lighter than the normal plus the spanish bb set is lighter than the Euro. The frame features 18.75 inch TT, 74.5 degrees HT angle, 69 degrees ST angle, 13.1 inch CS, 5mm thick heat-treated lasercut CrMo dropouts slotted for 10mm/3/8 inch axles. The Gypo2 frame will only be available without U/brake mounts and cable stoppers. All tubes are 100% Japanese Sanko 4130 CrMo. The frame will be available in the beginning of October, for Euro 270.
