Usually one of the parts gives strength to the product, another one acts as a binding agent. In our case, it is actually a “textile” consisting of carbon fibers sintered with epoxy resin. We use the constructional (so called Preprag) as well as the final visual (Uni Directional random) layers of carbon material from one of its top-quality manufacturers - Japanese brand of TORAYCA, the carbon supplier for F1 monopostos of BRAWN GP mark, for example. The processer of these materials and the manufacturer of the actual frame or, as the case may be, further components for us is the Taiwan company of Carbotec Ind. then.

AUTHOR CARBON IN GENERAL Frame's structural elements

The frame is made applying the monocoque technology, which is the connection of the front triangle with the chain and seat stays. This secures a more robust, stiffer, and the safest possible connection. In the frame, only the basins for the head set, bottom bracket threaded insert, and drop outs are of duralumin.

The concave deflection of the seat stay increases its ability to absorb minor shocks due to road roughness. Due to this property the wheels remain permanently in contact with the surface, maintain the direction, the ride is safer, more considerate, and more comfortable for the rider. We use it for the CA88, CA77, CA66, CA66e, CA55 models.

In the Model Year 2013 you can find on 5 out of 6 carbon AUTHOR frames seat tube diameter 34,9 mm and that means diameter of the seat post 31,6 mm. This bigger (oversize) diameter helps to to enhance rigidity and strength of the front frame triangle. Also better fits to the frame design. Above mentioned Cross frame for SYNERGY, AVION has 31,8 mm seat tube clamp diameter and seat post diameter 27,2 mm.

In order to enhance rigidity and strength of the front frame part, the head tube of the frame is tapered and compatible with the 1.5“ tapered fork's steerer tube. We use this for all of our carbon frames.

Inner cable routing inside the top frame tube for both derailleurs, resp. inside the down frame tube for the rear hydraulic brake hose in case of the SYNERGY model. The cable routing leads in a hollow PVC tube that is glued into the frame. We use this for all of our carbon frames, except for the road ones.

| TECHNOLOGIES AUTHOR CARBON ROAD For a model year 2013 we stay with our 2nd generation AUTHOR road frame platform, which is used for models CA88, CA77, CA66e, CA66 and CA55 in different strength and quality carbon material levels. The reason to stay is that we are absolutely satisfied. The prime property of carbon is the absorption of roughness, shocks, but naturally, also lower weight and the chance to arbitrarily shape all tube profiles. Another advantage of carbon material is it's high stiffness, strength and lower extent of the fatigue compare to duralumin. The frame has been made applying the AUTHOR MONOCOQUE CARBON TECHNOLOGY. This is, in fact the connection of the front triangle to the chain and seat stays. This secures a more robust, stiffer and the safest possible connection.

The high comfort rate is secured by the CARBON FLEX STAY DESIGN of the seat stays. For another side stiffness and frame strength is the head tube compatible with 1,5” tapered fork's steerer tube. That means 1 1/8” upper and 1,5” lower directly embeded bearings.

Application of the stainless steel stickers on the chain stay to protect the frame tubes from chain's falling of the chainwheels is already a standard.

Advantages of 1.5“ Tapered Fork's Steerer tube: 1. more balanced distribution of the flexural stress in the taper fork steerer tube 2. lower weight of column (by 20-30 g) over the 1.5“ or 1 1/8“ version 3. more optimum (larger) column diameter in the point of fixing

Proof of perfect geometry, choice of good material and shape of the tubes is absolute satisfaction of the road Team PSK WhirlpoolAUTHOR with model CA77, which they ride since the year of 2008.

| TECHNOLOGIES AUTHOR CARBON FULL SUSPENSION BIKES (FSX) Introduction Only several years ago the full suspension bicycles were a relatively big rarity and many looked on this concept at least sceptically. However, the times pushed forward to see the ever growing popularity of the full suspension bicycles. This is supported by the more favourable prices and decreasing weight of FSX bicycles as well as by the justification of the entire concept. As compared to the rigid bike, the full suspension bicycles offer a series of advantages embodied mainly by: 1. Higher riding comfort. 2. Reduced fatigue of rider. 3. Improved safety of riding. 4. Better riding properties in a terrain. 5. Reduction of the hazards for health caused by vibrations. Springing lowers the transmission of oscillatory motions (vibrations) induced by the ride over the terrain irregularities which are transmitted to the frame or rider’s body in the hard tail bicycle. Springing thus protects the rider against undesirable shocks and the frame from excessive mechanical stress. Reduced vibration levels generally increase the riding comfort which is positively reflected in a reduced rider fatigue and, as a result, in the improved riding safety. The next aim of springing is to establish the best possible and preferably permanent contact of wheels and terrain in order to limit the wheels from rebounding off the terrain in the ride over irregularities. Permanent contact of wheels and terrain is conditional for the transmission of forces which enable turning, braking of bicycle and its drive. The aforementioned advantages of the full suspension bicycles as compared to the hard tail bicycle thus lend it precondition for better riding properties, overall higher degree of riding safety, comfort, and pleasure from the ride.

TECHNOLOGIES | AUTHOR CARBON FSX

AUTHOR FSX frame's design From the mentioned reasons we believe in purposefulness and future development as well as larger sales of the full suspension (FSX) bicycles so we launched into the market for the model year 2011 two completely new carbon frame platforms of full suspension frames though having the same model designations as in 2010: A-RAY and ERA. Both frames utilize four-pivot construction. Of course, each frame is designed separately having its own specific goal. Even so they have several elements in common:

« The carbon frame of classical triangular style with lightly arched top frame tube which is followed up optically by a deflected seat stay.

« A low front triangle with great sloping to secure a rigid and strong front part of the frame. « The conical head tube compatible with the 1.5“ fork's tapered steerer tube. « The straight continuous seat tube of 34.9 mm in diameter (31.6 mm seat post) interconnected with

« « « «

« « « «

the down frame tube via the shock-absorber’s bottom eyelet guarantees maximum strength and rigidity of the frame. It also allows for the full insertion of seat post during bicycle’s relocation and in the ride. Massive junction around the conical head tube with enlarged bottom bearing is a guarantee of strength and rigidity of this frame part. Narrowed top frame tube to enhance comfort with a radius transition into the seat tube. The down biaxial frame tube for higher strength of the front triangle in the exposed points. The chain stay of a maximum length is straight on the brake side and asymmetrically bent on the chain side so that it can keep off the gear shifters. Together with a well-dimensioned seat stay and linkage they form a four-pivot mechanism with highly precise and rigid rear wheel guide. It is just the classical four-pivot mechanism which guarantee a maximum functionality of springing. Cable guide for both derailleurs through the top frame tube is elegant, practical, and it does not disturb frame’s appearance and design. Application of the stainless steel stickers on the chain stay and down tube to protect the frame tubes from chain's falling of the chainwheels is already a standard. Both frames are offered in 3 sizes : 17, 19 and 21“.

The frames were honored by the Czech Grand Design award by the Czech Republic Academy of design in category Maker of the year 2010.

| TECHNOLOGIES FOUR-PIVOT REAR WHEEL SUSPENSION SYSTEMS The basis for each four-pivot suspension is a mechanism with one degree of freedom which is called parallelogram. This mechanism (schematically indicated on a figure) consists of the frame, three moving arms and four pivots (hence the name “four-pivots”). Individual elements of the mechanism are called: A-balance beam (chain stay), B-pitman (seat stay), C-linkage.

FOUR-PIVOT STRUCTURE – CHARACTERISTICS « The main and crucial advantage is the mounting of wheel and brake on the “seat stay” (pitman) where the braking force is resolved predominantly into the tension in a chain stay and into the pressure in the linkage. The rear structure therefore can virtually spring without any limits. « The susceptibility of springing to the braking process is minimal (it depends on the kinematic arrangement and the amount of the pressure force in a linkage that gets into the shock-absorber). « The force induced by chain tension resolves predominantly into the pressure in chain stay and linkage. Thus it is not necessary to place the chain stay’s pivot to the level of central chainwheel. « Springing is influenced minimally by the chain tension (it is dependant on the kinematic arrangement again).

TECHNOLOGIES | AUTHOR CARBON CROSS

We continued in collaboration with the designer Mr. Ing. Pavel Sajtak when designing a 2nd generation carbon frame for cross bicycles - the AVION and SYNERGY 2012 models and we going to stay with this frame also for model year 2013. The frame optically resembles full suspension (FSX) carbon frames which represented our first joint project. The bend in the top section of the frame is noticeable and the top tube smoothly merges into the seat stay. Thus it resembles a shape of a bow. It does not only have a distinctive sloping and an interesting design, but it adds more rigidity to the front triangle, too.

AUTHOR DURALUMIN IN GENERAL Frame's Structural Elements The concave deflection of the seat stay increases its ability to absorb minor shocks due to road roughness. Due to this property the wheels remain permanently in contact with the surface, maintain the direction better, the ride is safer, more considerate, and more comfortable for the rider. It is used on the models A55, A44 and A33 and all alloy MTB - middle and high level.

In the Model Year 2013 you can find on MTB models Infinity, Respect a Logic Series and on Cross Respect and Logic Series AUTHOR frames seat tube diameter 34,9 mm and that means diameter of the seat post 31,6 mm. This bigger (oversize) diameter helps to to enhance rigidity and strength of the front frame triangle. Also better fits to the frame design.

3S CHAIN STAY – STIFF. STRAIGHT. SHORT Stiff, straight, short - are the characteristic properties of the chain stay, featuring a direct relation to its higher stiffness, thus also in the acceleration of the entire bike. We use it for the MTB Infinity and Respect and for the Cross Infinity Series models.

The characteristics of the S-shaped profile of the seat stay secure its ability to absorb minor terrain roughness. We use it on our MTB Infinity and Respect models as well as on the Cross Respect Series.

The specific shape of the down tube utilises the twisting of the horizontal flattening of the lower section verging into vertical flattening in its top section. The BTP system enables the increase of the side stiffness of the connection of the down tube with the BB shell, thus eliminating the load in the connection with the head tube. We use it on the MTB Infinity, Respect and Logic models, as well as for the Cross Infinity and Respect Series and the FSX – full suspension mountain bikes.

Hydroformly shaped frame tubes on our road frames A55, A44 and A33 are creating the replica of carbon frame model CA7707 1st generation and also on all touring frames.

Hydroform method of the frame tube profiling for touring models. The material used is alloy 6061.

It is a hydroformly made duralumin replica of the 1st generation CA7707 carbon frame. The aim was to transfer this very attractive profiling even to the duralumin frames, thus making it available to the wide public. The material used is triple butted (TB) 6061 T6 duralumin for the A55, A44 and A33 models.

TECHNOLOGIES | AUTHOR DURALUMIN 26“ MTB FULL SUSPENSION (FSX) FRAMES For the 2013 model collection, we offer aluminium alternatives of full suspension (FSX) carbon frame platforms A-RAY and ERA 2011. To extend this category with full-suspension bikes in a more affordable version, we have designed new aluminium frames and specified the A-RAY 1.0/ 2.0 and ERA 1.0 models. We tried to introduce frames resembling the carbon FSX frames with their looks and profiles. This is why these aluminium replicas bear certain frame shapes and tube profiles from the carbon original: 1. A carbon frame of a classic, triangular design with a slightly bent top tube which optically merges into a bent seat stay. 2. A low front triangle with large sloping that ensures a rigid and firm front section of the frame. 3. A conical head tube compatible with the 1.5" tapered fork steerer tube. 4. A bi-axial profile of the down tube for a higher rigidity of the front triangle in the exposed sections. 5. The maximum-length chain stay is straight on the brake side and asymmetrically bent on the chain side to avoid contact with the crank set and the chain. 6. The classic four pivot design ensures maximum suspension efficiency. 7. Both frames will be offered in three sizes 17, 19 and 21"; they are made of the double-butted AL6061 material.

Structural and geometry elements of the A-RAY frame's platform 1. A four – pivot mechanism with the rear wheel travel 100 mm. 2. Direct Post Mount (PM) disc mount interface on the rear seat stay prepared for 6" rotor as a part of the drop out 3. Optimum geometry for XC ride.

Structural and geometry elements of the ERA frame's platform 1. A four – pivot mechanism with the rear wheel travel 130 mm. 2. Direct Post Mount (PM) disc mount interface on the rear seat stay prepared for 7" rotor as a part of the drop out 3. Universal "TRAIL" geometry ideal both for longer rides in difficult terrain and potential XC marathon races.

| TECHNOLOGIES AUTHOR DURALUMIN MTB 29" Benefits and disadvantages of 29” frame compared to the traditional 26” frame The difference between wheel diameters 26” and 29” is not just in the size but also in the responsiveness during ride. There are several aspects for comparison of the two sizes. The most important one, with greater impact on the quality of ride can be summarised in the following five areas: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

ride stability terrain passability energy demands rolling-resistance size of the contact surface between the tyre and the terrain

29” bikes provide physically better driving stability, better terrain passability, lower rollingresistance and 1.4-times greater contact surface compared to the 26” size bike. Greater contact surface provides better traction – better transference of braking and driving forces. The energy demands increase by mere 10 %. 29” mountain bikes are much more suitable for taller figures. The height of 175 cm is usually considered as the limiting size. Under certain circumstances, the 29” size bikes can, thanks to it's better terrain passability, can substitute full-suspension bikes. Compared to the latter, 29” bikes are cheaper and require less maintenance due to the absence of rear suspension as well as other technologically complex components of the full-suspension frames. For the year 2013, we are expanding our offer of duralumin models into 4 - INSTINCT 29, TRACTION 29, DEXTER 29 and SOLUTION 29. They all are modifications of original AUTHOR models adjusted for the 29” wheel size, i.e. fitted with longer forks, bigger rims, tires and tubes. The frame geometry and lengths of components have also been adjusted: shorter stems and longer seat posts. All these modifications improve control as well as more comfortable seat.

AUTHOR DURALUMIN MTB 26" In model year 2011 we launched an altered shape and profile of both the front and rear triangles. We open up again our own moulds to create original and attractively designed and resistant tubes for duralumin frames according to our project of shapes, cross-section sizes, used materials, and strength parameters. The exemplar is the carbon frame again that was novelty in 2010 for 3 topmost MTB 26” models. You can find this shaping again in our 2012 collection on our MTB 26”, MTB ASL, MTB 29“ and CROSS ASL bicycles of the medium and higher category (the Respect and Infinity Series). The frames are also completed with newly designed bridges of the chain stay and seat stay. The applied material is again the well-proven double butted dural 6061 or, alternatively, triple butted dural 6061 T6 for the MTB mediumcategory models, and the triple butted dural 6069 T6 for the VISION and EGOIST models.

The two last mentioned models assume not only the shaping of tubes but also the racing geometry from the higher carbon models, including the extra size 22“. For model year 2013 they also get the direct Post Mount (PM) disc mount interface on the rear seat stay prepared for 6” rotor as a part of the drop out.

For 2013, we are coming with a new geometry for the MTB 26” Respect Series category, which we have done for couple reasons: 1. expand the size range from original 16.5; 17.5; 19; 20 and 21” to 15, 17, 19, 21 and 23” 2. regularly grade the size range by 2”. This means that the TRACTION/CONTEXT and INSTINCT 2013 models will continue to be offered in 5 sizes, however, they will be covering a bigger range of our bike user's height. We are preserving the sporty - recreational seating and the frame geometry in this category and level even for 2013, of course. The MTB 26” Respect Series 2013 frame geometry is based on the MTB 26” Logic Series 2012 geometry, it only gains a shorter rear stay with the length of 420 mm with a positive reference to the entire bike acceleration. As a result, the bike will have shorter wheel base with respect to the MTB 26” Logic Series 2012/13 geometry, as well as MTB 26” Respect Series 2012. Compared to the latter one, the new geometry of the MTB 26” Respect Series 2013 frame will have a smaller S/T angle (73°). In your purchase order, please adjust the MTB 26” Respect Series sizes as follows (2012/13): 16.5" = 15"; 17.5" = 17"; 19" = 19"; 20" = 21"; 21" = 23".

AUTHOR DURALUMIN CROSS ASL 3 models (GRAND ASL, STRATOS ASL and CLASSIC ASL) created for sportsmanlike girls who are not interested in a men’s cross model, refusing to put up with a women’s cross frame. The geometry is based on the CORSA and VISTA cross models with slightly elongated top frame tube. The frames will be identical with their shape and design to the MTB Author Sport Lady models. They will be thus more interesting for women and girls even in the design. As compared to the classical men’s cross frames, the frames have larger sloping for better bicycle handling. Offered frame sizes are: 17 and 19,5“.

The last year’s ZENITH ASL is replaced by the GRAND ASL model for 2013 in order to offer a lady’s cross bike option with hydraulic disc brakes to women, as well.

We have tried to make our own design and philosophy of frames that would be not only fully functional but also interesting for its design and frame tube profiles. Thanks to our own design, we had to get new tube moulds to be opened. We call this technology as ALLOY 6061 HYDROFORM DESIGN.

They will be used for hydroform shaping of aluminium tubes for three frame platforms on which the following models in the specified sizes will be produced: 1. Touring Man (TRIUMPH and ADVENT) 2. Touring Woman (SYMPHONY and DYNASTY) 3. Touring LST – Low Step Through (MAJESTY and SEANCE) The men's frame was designed especially with the concern of comfortable seating, strenght and rigidity.

The frames are equipped with all components usual in touring bicycles - threaded eyes for a bicycle carrier and an integrated lock in the seat stay and the chain stay and threads in the frame drop outs for installation of mudguard stays. There is also a base for installation of a stand behind the bottom bracket shell. The chain stay is equipped with a lug for installation of a chain and crank set fullcover guard. All frames have threaded eyes for installation of a bottle holder.
