Not yet. Bikesdirect did mention a few days ago on the SS/FG forum here they'd be posting pictures and a video they'll upload to YouTube.

I'm reserving judgment until they're ready to show them.

I like the orange bike! the Kazoo reminds me of the sven minivelo.

I like playing with minivelos. I built a hammerhead 7 for my mother using spares I had left after upgrading various other bikes:


This was after I build a Smooth hound to ferry kids around with a trail gator (hence saddle post bracket) and a shotgun saddle



and when the kids became to big for the shotgun, I rebuilt the smooth hound as a road bike for training purposes

With Cyclocross/gravel option




Lovely bike in Winter

This was ordered from China via aliexpress a few years ago and turned out to be really small. My 10 year old grand daughter eventually got tall enough to have it.

This one's gone through some changes since I first showed it a few years ago.
