I know a lot about these bikes - they are in no way suitable for heavy offroading. But they do look nice.

Internal hub gear systems are just not suited though.

The original Biomega Copenhagen bike was beautiful - no corners cut whatsover. They even had bikes with Pace forks and carbon frames.

They are not so high-end anymore though.
