Scary bike engineering of the day
Yep, nothing like having the brake cable routed right under the seatpost, where one big hit would drive the seatpost right into it, making the rear brake unusable.
(Sorry for the bad image from my cellphone.)
i think thats the least of that bikes worries....
looks like it's an x-mart bike. the "suspension" is cosmetic, anyway.
wow as for the ornamental comment, its more like a deathtrap i had a friend get hurt when the so called shock broke he got a nice compesation curtesy of huffy
The bracket holding the cable in position looks like it could be bent to either side giving you a little more room.
What makes you think an engineer had anything to do with the design of that bike?
At best it was a conceptual artist.

Those look like some horrendous welds.
