Am I alone in liking that? The whole bike market is a mish mash of variety bits stuck together creating new genres and thats no different really. OK suspension is over kill, but then pot holes are huge and disasterous at times, not to mention bad back issues and comfort, yep the wheels are didi but so are scooter wheels. :idea: Great concept explored I reckon, I'd never buy it for that, not even half, but Its kinda inspiring and I'd love to have a go on it! :D

Don't really see it. Solving a problem that doesn't exist?

I'd have a go on it... But that's about all.

Not sure about the custom built frame either. Looks more like a Halfords special kids full sus frame, with a 26" wheel sus fork, stupid bmx bars and a couple of majorly OTT upgrades (fox shock and carbon booster. -really?! :shock: )

But then I'm quite sceptical these days...

OK who offered £550, which strangely didn't secure this beauty?
