    Despite being rediculously over-priced for what ya get... Is nobody gonna bring up the fact that it just looks goofy as hell! I'm mean if I'm gonna drop a few grand on a bike it sure as hell isn't gonna look like the illigitimate offspring of a beachcruiser and a early Huffy...

    Note to self: borrow friend's mig welder and make a duplicate frame, paint it "titanium" and then put on Ebay. Anonymously email the link to Doug.

    Well, it's just a bicycle Velveeto. It appears from Jeff riding it that it can handle some abuse. Though he could be a super smooth trials'y lander. He also throws slicks on it with a lower rise stem and does road TT.

    It's just a bicycle. It's not FR, it's not AM, it's not XC, it's not a fairy princess unicorn steed.

    It's just an odd duck that I wanted to hear people jabber about for a bit. It's supposedly laterally rigid while vertically compliant. (up to 1/2" or so) I would imagine that there's nothing magical about it yet those who would be in a position to afford it and actually act on it...would give it stellar reviews no matter what b/c they would be way to proud to admit they spent $9850 on a bike that rides like a Monocog.


    Funny though...if I'd posted a picture like this:

    ...you would have thought it was a rigid XC bike.

    But since I only showed these:


    You thought it was a FR rig.


    Does this make it a road bike?



    Tell ya what...I'd sure love to ride that terrain on my Komodo.

    Better be the real thing and not a little flux-core rig.

    Here, you're gonna need these too:

    http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/cta...emnumber=99736

    Now you're giving me ideas. We've got a nice little specialty metal supplier in town that carries 4130. I knew I should have bid on that TIG outfit years back when I had the chance.

    It looks like its designed to equally distribute the force to seperate parts of the frame equally so as to be able to handle bigger jumps and such without breaking the frame as easily as it would on a typical fully rigid bike frame...... but what about the comfort for the rider? The frame might hold up under preassure but it just puts all the stress on the rider which would lead to some pretty harsh landings....

    Why is it being hucked off a rock in all the pics?

    Is that the target demographic?
