LAST is a rider owned mountain bike company based in Dortmund, Germany. Since the millenium we develop hardtail and full suspension frames. Based on our riding and professional experience we match geometries that handle well with high performance suspension systems and state of the art mechanical engineering. We strive to build your bike ,reliable and light, for more happy hours on the trail.
It all started with the wish to have a bike with better riding characteristics to make the riding more fun. This was in year 2000 when Jochen Forstmann built the first prototype of the RUFUS dirt jump frame. Since then nothing has changed: The driving force behind all creations is the passion for riding bikes.
Jörg Heydt joined LAST in 2002 and has remained loyal to the company as co-owner until today. Jochen and Jörg know each other from the spots in the Ruhr area and raced together on several mtb series and championchips. Together they developed the first downhill bike from which the later HERB DH emerged.
Since the foundation of LAST the racing idea is deeply rooted in the company.
