Is it just suspension that people find ugly? :D

I rather like this fat tyred cyclocross/29er hybrid.

Have to agree with you there, that Shand is lovely, though I'd have to go for the burnt orange paint with black decals, or black with white decals, polished alloy parts and tan leather saddle and bar tape.

It's sad to see that even a company like Moots will cave in and make that 29er full suspension abomination called MX Divide! Ugh! They used to make such cool bikes but now I lost some respect of them because of this. The curved down-tube I hate curved down tubes or any curved tubes as a matter of fact. Looks from afar like some shitty Wal-Mart Huffy POS. Why Moots? Why?!!

^^^ That one really is all over the shop. Slim tubes, wide tubes, curved tubes, straight tubes. New styling, older type longer stem...it's a right mess.

I'm with you there, they're fine on 1950s beach cruiser style bikes, just fugly anywhere else.

I can see plenty to love in a lot of 'modern' bikes.

Hmm, I think it's the very low, sloping top tubes I don't like, they put me in mind of the old style mixte frames - for girls. :P
