Same here. It would be hell to clean and bees could make nest in the top tube making for a scarry ride.

I agree! Not a chance that I would get on one of those...

2009 Specialized Sequoia Elite
2009 Trek 7.3 (Red)

I would get on one but would never buy/own one. Just too weird looking
No, but you could use it to grate cheese.
1050 gms for a frame is nothing to crow about. My R3 is 1020 gms. When one builds it out, it will come in around 15ish depending how much pain your wallet can take. And the aerodynamics look dubious. I will give it novelty appeal.
I think it looks pretty cool. At least it's not just another carbon fiber bike like all the rest.
The more you ride your bike, the less your ass will hurt.
I would be worried about it being difficult to inspect for cracks.
But it is eye-catching.
Saw a bike today and did not have my camera with me. Unusual was not the word- Normal seat tube about half length though- normal headtube and BB. The top tube- downtube- remainder of the seat tube and fork legs were made out of thickwalled piping- about 3/8" od. 4 on the main tubes and the forks had two for each leg I will need a picture to explain it but This was a Car race preparation company. Several other items in the office like a Manx Norton Motorbike and a Fixie with the name "Maserati" on the downtube. The Maserati was a "Roberts" Bike rebadged.
So plenty of wierd bikes around but sorry- it will be a while before I get pics of this one.
How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.
Someone really misinterpreted the Titus Exogrid concept.
"It could be anything. Scrap booking, high-stakes poker, or the Santa Fe lifestyle. Just pick a dead-end and chill out 'till you die."
Progeny of a cross bike and the Eiffel Tower.....most bikes are vastly overbuilt for me, this one might not be!
Where does one place his water bottle(s)?
On the other hand, great spare tube storage space.
Not a fat boy's bike, is it? Road bikes, in general, just aren't for me.
I evaluated my weight (up there), the terrain that I'd be riding (flat as a pancake), my goals (exercise & errands), and my expectations of the bicycle (safety & durability) and came up with the right choice for me - an Electra Townie coaster brake with additional basket & fenders. I haven't regretted the choice yet!
I wonder if it whistles in the wind?
A conclusion is the place where you got tired of thinking. - S. Wright
Favorite rides in the stable: Indy Fab CJ Ti - Colnago MXL - S-Works Roubaix - Habanero Team Issue - Jamis Eclipse carbon/831
I'd happily give either version a try but would be even more timid than usual on descents.
Laissez les bon temps rouler
We have CAT1 and CAT2, etc. I think there should be a special category for riders who know the weight of their bikes in grams. <G>
