So many dead end designs but none of the bikes are complete dead ends, difficult month.

haha, perhaps. IT would've been funny, and highly controversial, had someone posted a bike with a frame highly prone to cracking. Doesn't get more dead end, than a frame that breaks if you look at it the wrong way.

That would be a great example of a frame material that was a dead end. Didn't Grove make a frame from that material? Trying to think, who else?

The Lati and the Progear were both temptations for me, but I couldn't miss the chance to vote for LGF's Green Machine, it's one of my favourite bikes on the site.
