Just curious, does the new Arcade frame clear the Hope/Inspired bashring combo now?

Not that I'm aware of, sorry.  Plans to change that in future, but not quite for this one unfortunately.

They sold out of the first batch, the plan had been to do the second batch in a different colour.  It's exactly the same frame kit/bike (apart from the Tripod seat/post setup).  

The lead times for things like this mean that decisions are made months and months in advance.  It's not a snap decision, it's something that's planned.  That's why it was all timed so that when the first batch sold out the new ones were pretty much ready to go with only a relatively small down time for bikes being out of stock (from Inspired at least).

Having seen both of the colours in real life, I'm keen on both.  I prefer the smoother finish on the Skye frame not least because it means that you can clean it up a bit easier (taking photos of the black one was a bit of a nightmare as the coarse finish picked up dirt/lint/anything and was pretty stubborn about it).  As Ali said before, with the Arcade, it's colour is pretty much designed to work as the complete bike Inspired sell.  Matte black parts throughout with that frame colour looks really good as a complete setup.  There are a few BMXs out there with similar colour schemes that look really cool.

 

sweet, sounds good.

 

Cheers :)
