When navigating extreme terrain, I too like to have my derailleur cage 3 inches off the ground.

Yeah dude...to the max!

All that crap aside...that thing with a Rohloff or Sturmy setup could be kinda fun for going out and just bonkin' around.

I'd think that if you DID actually use a rear derailleur instead of internally geared...you'd be in the crapper pretty quick, eh?

It's the precursor to the next fad - the 1929'er.

I checked out their promo video and it was pretty lame - there was nothing in there that couldn't be ridden smoother and faster on a more conventionally proportioned mtb.

ALL OF YOU ARE WRONG!!!! Whatīs a burro bike? Itīs a bike you use for doing nosenses. Specially you call burro bike a supermarket bicycle. You do things that you never will do with your first bike.

There are GUARRO BIKES too. We call guarro- bike a bike you use for mud or raining conditions. Itīs again a supermarket bicycle.
