I was intrigued by this bike.
Described by CL seller as first CF 29er, single stay to rear wheel.

Just wondering on the manufacturer. Don't recognize decal, but still on 1st Sat morn cuppa.

Never seen such a bike, but made a reverse search based on your pic (thee are plenty of really similar bikes mostly for duatlon), and bumped into one, I guess this is where the seller got the info as well, as there's hardly anything on HOP bikes. I must admit, being a red bike lover, this actually looks way cooler in black, but its a matter of taste.This one is in the Houston Bicycle Museum. Not a big help, but something.

The fine arts major did a nice design. Period.

Maybe i should go look at the black one. It is certainly "rare".

+1. I would already be on my way and I do not, DO NOT, need another project. But that one fits into my idea of special.

Having to add the tension/compression strut kind of contaminates the purity of the original design, but I guess they had to do what they had to do.
