    hmm, hideous!!
    not to mention impractically large and unwieldy when folded, and for all that carbon and titanium... heavy!

    Yes, it's a curious and awkward design. I posted the link because I hadn't seen any references to it before.

    Ugh!

    When they say "designed with the assistance of the University of Pisa", I assume they mean a bunch of students!

    See we've all got our negativity caps on today and after the boys in Pisa tried so hard, shame on you all. An 8 speed belt drive, can't see a tensioner so the back end has to be rigid, interesting to see what the price will be, if it ever comes to the market.

    FWIW: Pisa has one of the most prestigious mathematics departments in the world, and among the top in lots of other technical fields. So this sounds like marketing BS to me.
