    my head hurts thinking about setting that chain tension.
    Culture? Art? Making a difference? Hey, go **** yourself. We're too busy drinking, doing drugs, trying to **** random people and you want us to make money on top of all that? Really?

    Well, ****. I don't give a ****.

    someone please explain to me why bike companies name their products things such as "finger bangers" "anal sex" "bukakke" "strip bars" etc, especially bmx companies

    What's funny is maybe now about a year ago a thread was made with a bike like that. He claimed it was inefficient in comparison to single drive. The noobs are catching on later-- and they're only going to find that it sucks.

    Anyone else notice they used vertical dropouts? Good work guys.

    SS 29er = good.
    Dual Drive is ********. 100+years of the saftey bicycle has proven that one chain is enough.

    I think I have a marketing slogan for them. "Dual drive. because Single speed mountain bikes aren't heavy enough"

    On their site they claim there is a torque advantage with dual drive. Sounds like BS to me.
    Sucks to your ass-mar!

    you know what would be deck? Triple drive! A singlespeed with triple cranks, and 3 cogs on the rear cassette. All at the same ratio. It would have all the weight of a geared system with none of the mechanical advantage. Perfect chainline would be offset by 3 times the mechanical friction, and it would look SO BADASS!

    **** yeah. Now we just have to get Sheldon Brown to build it.
    We know he searches the forums sometimes for his name so I'll just drop SHELDON and BROWN a couple of times here. You reading this, Sheldon?

    LH threading on the left side of the hub, there are a few BMX hubs that have both left and right side threading for LH freewheels. I'm guessing they took one of these and respaced it.

    For those who are hating on the design, there is a photo somewhere on the internet of a bike with 3 chains, all on the right side. Three chainrings, all the same size, and three cogs on a normal MTB hub with spacers.

    If it's the one I'm thinking of, that was a bike a guy raced in the Iditabike up in Alaska. Something to do with frozen slush mucking up a single chain, so 3 chains are better.

    Outside the arctic circle, though, it seems a bit overkill.

    It would be cool to get a regular mountain triple - say, 24, 34, 44 teeth on the chainrings - and then have three different cogs on the back that make the gear ratios the same. Did I say cool? I meant dorky.

    Ah that's all crap. It's still rear wheel drive. I want a mtb w/ two wheel drive. That'd be useful. I mean useless.
