looks like the rear wheel does not need the extra space made by the interupted seat tube, looking at the placement of the brake bosses, so a bit pointless.....but it does look very pleasing to the eye for some reason....... :D

It's a french frame builder named "Explosiv' "
He made only steel frames and work on the elasticity. These frame didn't need suspension.
He built some specific frame for Trial too :wink:

Nice interesting frame!

Another with interesting seized seatpost removal: http://www.vttpicard.com/t9867-vtt-explosiv

Seems Pascal liked to engineer flex in one direction by using parallel narrow tubes.

If it did flex under the weight of the rider (on the open diamond shape) surely it would flex (if it does flex) the brake bosses out of line.
