Glad you asked...
It's been an intriguing challenge developing bikes that were suitable for the inevitably steep learning-to-play curve. Having tried other regular players bikes and been aware that the early trend was for ex-track bikes with their punishing toe overlap, I went for safety through stability, sacrificing agility - always with a preference for the MTB lineage, natch. The MK3 is the shortest bike I've built to date and has handling to match, currently running a 34 x 21 gear.
MK 1 was a B Twin shopper with faux track ends for the internal hub - aka The Bastard Twin
MK 2 was a Marin I had track ends welded on - aka The MarinAid
MK 3 is a £30 elevated stay thing that curiously had diagonal drop outs - aka The Dreadnought
MK 4 is in the pipeline...
