I can't decide if I like how it looks, or utterly hate it.

Wouldn't mind a ride to see how it feels which would influence my decision.

Currently sitting on the "it's a bit of a hideous monster" side of the fence.

I must admit that in the video it doesn't look that bad as in the picture, still doesn't float my boat though...

only just watched the vid myself. to be honest, despite all the testing and the 'positive results' (and i am of the type that is interested in those things) if i don't like how it looks, i aint gonna be interested in it enough to invest. just like a car, motorbike etc.
it just doesn't look right and i cant help feeling that its a little too function over form....there is a balance somewhere. maybe a more oval shape...???

Am I going too be exiled if I said I actually rather like it?

Ah, what the hell, I actually rather like it.

Sorry.

Now I want a bike with a Round back end, Slingshot down tube, Allsop beam for the top and a lefty fork, for my dream bike.

I kind of like it

I dont mind this too much but surely the popular use of carbon fibre for seat and chain stays has exactly the same effect?
