What has a 100 year warranty, the best crash replacement program in the biz, and comes from the land down under? That would be a Teschner frame, newly available to the US. Teschner started buisness in Byron Bay, Australia in 1990 and has quickly become a recognizable name in performance and design when it comes to high performance road bikes.
Peter Teschner has been hard at work with his company for some time, and while Teschner bikes are huge in Australia, they are just starting to gain a foothold elsewhere. This may be due to the fact that Peter takes so much pride in his product that he offers what seems to be the best crash replacement policy in the industry. Crash your bike bad enough to ruin it before 3 years after the original purchase, and you get a replacement frame and fork for only 50% of the total cost. Did I mention that racing doesn’t void the policy?
The frames look great and have some pretty solid numbers to back them up.
Check out all the models after the break.
This is a built up Teschner SL9, which is their lightest carbon road frame. The SL9 is a high modulus frame finished in a 1k weave top layer for finish qaulity. The bike you see above is full Dura Ace, with Easton EC 90 SL wheels and weighs just under 15 pounds.

The SL7 is the little brother to the SL9 and even comes out of the same mold. The difference between the two frames is that the SL7 is a unidirectional High Mod frame that forgoes the 1k top coat. This makes the frame a little heavier and comes in at about 1000 grams.
