Kinda off-topic for the thread, but the picture (in somebody's sig) of the bike on a rack, on the back of a Lambo - isn't that going to get some of the front wheel melted, or at least a bit hot for comfort?

Although the Yeti Ultimate is absolutely beautiful, and indeed some Funks, i'm not entirely swayed....... the Alpine Stars, Nishiki's et all are all bloomin' horrible!

So overall, it's an UNCOOL from me.

Thanks for posting the pic of the RM Summit FluffyChicken...that's the exact bike I used to own...good to see one again.

Great to see e-stays going well in the cool. For me e-stays are of an era and just remind me of times when MTB tech was moving quickly and racing was fun :D

I must admit some bikes shown here are soo nice but anything than two triangles just add weight and make construction weak, any decent engineer will tell you it, except three triangles which make rear triangle smaller and stiffer and that make sense :wink: More weight without reason =not cool to me.
