Edd Tongue gets his signature Ashton frame
E(double)D Tongue has received his Ashton signature frame. Looks real nice, but he and his manager, Gate Eight Head Honcho Nick (really nice shoes, thanks) Larsen, are already trying to spoil it.

Nick writes: "I am currently working on the graphics on Edd Tongue's signature frame. The 24 inch Ashton Bikes machine is gonna have some pretty different graphics on it. Edd has been sticking all sorts of rubbish to various parts of the prototype, including photos of his girlfriend and Peacock Lane guard-dog "Jippo".

He has been trying to mock up what he wants the graphics to look like. I have my ideas, he has his, and we have met somewhere in between. All I can tell you for now is that the base colour is Stealth Black, and I am pretty excited about the rest of the artwork. We are gonna chuck in a Gate Eight product with each frame sold. Look out!

PS: Of course if Ashton Bwana doesn't like it we'll both have been wasting our time".

You'll be able to tell whose ideas won the day by counting the number of Gate Eight stickers on the frame, we reckon. E(single)D.
