Matthias Dandois has got a signature frame coming out over at Haro Bikes called La Bastille. It's named after his favourite spot to ride in Paris. Matthias received his first frame earlier this year and put it through the test. Many TV shows, comps, street sessions and sponsor trips later, it was time for Matthias to get rid of his first frame, the 'creme' version of La Batille. As Matthias was traveling from Texas Toast straight to Japan it was time to say goodbye to his very first signature prototype frame.

An instagram comp later and the frame was won by Matthias over in Texas. He came to pick up the frame at the Texas Toast contest and opted to drive straight back home to put it together. Swed1510 posted later: "Met Matthias Dandois today, couldn't have been a cooler dude! Thanks for the frame man you will see many pics of this frame. It could not have gone to a better rider!"

Later that night he posted up a photo of his bike all built up and ready to ride.
