    Mondraker Curve

    I need opinions about the Mondraker Curve frame! It looks that this frame is not very strong!..
    Cheers

    I speak Spanish, but just conversational. Technical writing is beyond my ability. However, the design is a walking beam 4 bar (like an older Kona design) mated to another theoretical 4 bar at the bb, similar to a Santa Cruz Blur or Intense Spyder VPP design. That makes it an 8 bar pivot bike!

    That's a whole lotta pivots to maintain. I'm guessing that's also a whole lotta flexing at the pivots. Probably rides really smooth, but is a wet noodle in lateral play!

    Just my opinion from looking at the picture of it. It could be a DREAM to ride!
