Rick Moliterno just sent us the new ’05 Bullitt and 250S frames, both of which should retail for around $389.The Bullitt is Moliterno’s signature frame and tips the scales at 5 pounds, 3.5 ounces; a very respectable weight for what it’s designed to handle. The 250S, which was designed as a classic street/trails/park frame, weighs in at 5 pounds, 6.4 ounces. The 250S is lighter than Standard’s STA frame, and stronger than the Standard 250L (although it also weighs a bit more). For more information on these, or any other Standard product, go to www.standardbyke.com

The second you pick up the Bullitt, you just smile… It’s way lighter than what you’d think…  credit: James Ayres

A close up on the Bullitt logo and the head tube…

The 250S is a great in-between frame; it’s stronger than the 250L, yet lighter than the STA.
