The Potts is pretty... but I cant get on board with the dirt drops. It reminds of the times when mountain bikes were still trying to find their identies. It seems some went the way of overbuilt BMXs (Yeti) and others went the way of beefier cross/road setups. I'm probably going to incur the wrath of the purists, but it just doesn't look like that bike was designed to take any serious offroad abuse. I appreciate from where it came (hence my entry, a 1986 FC), but I just dont see why they tried that setup when the flat bars worked fine.

Again, this is only MHO, but to me they just look goofy :)

yes, the drop bar look takes a while to get used to. those who have ridden them properly set up (i.e. at the right height which only really works with the LD stems) like them though. if you promise me to vote for it i will mount the matching standard stem and WTB Ti bar and snap a photo ;)
