Crank-forward bikes are a model in many brands lines,
Trek has some.
perhaps they are trying to strike out from the pack.
smaller wheels do take up less apartment space when parked..
The FD issue is solvable by hybrid cassette IG combo hubs,
made by both S - A and SRAM. 3 speed is then internal to the rear hub.
customer is someone, that will not like stopping the bike
and not being flat foot on the ground like a motor scooter.
