The Liteville is OK, the super lame name aside. Reminds me of a Rocky Mountain Element... Straight tubes for the win!

I think that's possibly because far more bikes are FS these days and they tend to be the ones that polarise opinion the most.

Could this look any more class though..?

So it's not perfect by any means and certainly not as nice at the Ti version from last year but this years Explosif isn't looking too shabby. Sure it's not Columbus tubing like the good old days but it is steel and so it doesn't look like it's on steroids. It also means the downtube curve is less pronounced.

Last years steel version:

And last years ti frame version:

The Chris King Cielo MTB frame is lush as well.

All those 2014 bikes will be considered retro now and nothing will fit.

In general, 29ers in sizes S and M looks weird, quite Ugly, only in XL looks like a 26" in M size. Nowadays proportions mainly in 29er are rare.

Quite Ugly ... despite the big size. But not the only one.

And what about e-bikes, not bicycles ... motorcycles perhaps. They are in annother league :x
