    The aesthetics are alright, but USD1000 for a run of the mill aluminum framed bike seems waaay overpriced to me....

    But it's been developed by furniture designers. product designers, graphic designers and an advertizing agency. It's only 9.4Kg so you can display it in your living enviorment on it's specially designed wall mount.

    1260g is a reasonable weight for a frame.

    Wish they had better pics of the rear triangle. Those curvy stays look nice. Is that a 3t Mutant stem or just their version? Spec sheet sucks.

    went to visit the designers norway says in oslo last year on a trip with my old uni, and this bike was kicking about their show room. their furniture and products are beautiful, and very cleverly conceived, but i can't say i like the bike so much. just looked generic. i can't think of many architect/furniture designer/graphic designer designed bike that have really sold. usually these are just promotional tools. didn't see anyone riding these in oslo anyway.

    Bit worrying they left the QR lever open on the front brake caliper for the photo shoot (yellow bike).


    If - and I emphasis the word "if" - I was going to spend my money on an overpriced Scandinavian bike, I'd go for one of these: http://www.netpublikationer.dk/um/51..._8-84kW_20.jpg

    Disgusting is all I can think of.
