Andreu Lacondeguy’s got a new signature bike – and it’s badass!

“Hey man, this frame is f**king perfect! Leave it like it is, just change the colour. I want it black and I want the strongest components!” Spanish freeride nutjob Andreu Lacondeguy knows what he likes in a bike and this is the result – his signature 2013 YT Dirt Love hardtail in ‘badass black’.

There’s no subtle autograph decal for the star of one of our favourite videos of 2012 – instead the down-tube proudly proclaims: “Andreu Lacondeguy f**king signature frame yeah!” This is a bike that’s built to soak up big hits and dodgy landings, constructed from heat-treated, double-butted chromoly, complete with a tapered head-tube and strengthening gussets.

“I love this bike!” says Andreu. “It´s crazy how clean and simple it looks and how big you can go on it!” The Dirt Love signature model will be available from April 2013 for €999 (£814 / $1,311 at current exchange rate), from www.yt-industries.com.
