kinda hoping if I ignored it, it would go away :shock:

There is something in the rear triangle, but really struggling with the forks.
Some nice bits though.

Unfortunately for the guys on STW it hasnt got 8inch of travel at the front and back , 260mm discs brakes , so it wont be very good to get the paper on sunday morning . :lol:
And it is not painted black .

Pic is from Michael Staab's site: Click!

It is result of a project to develop a FS bike without suspension. MTB-Classic.de doesn't mention whether the design actually worked. I don't know. Anyway you have to be strong admirer of the 'form follows function' idea to appreciate the aesthetics. My 2cts.

the cantilevered dropout design is the same as 91(?) era c'dales... & they used to cracknfail (no, we wont go down the c'dale conversation again!) so I suspect that with that frame would be kinda similiar...

personally its uncool.... but thats just me :)
