I ran into Chris Herting last night on a ride and had his new B-29er singlespeed. I stare at bikes all day long and this was one of the coolest I've seen in awhile. Double sloping tob tube with clean cable routing. Best part is, he took the paint from my Kona and made a fade with silver. So hot right now...

I mean... you ride around and you run into chris herting on such a beauty... The luckiest I can do here is run into mr Tommasini, builder of wonderful road bikes, but quite lacking in fantasy as far as mtb's are concerned...

Hi,

It looks funny ...AND clever. It shows design features that look actually quite simple to me. Surprisingly simple ...but why didn't I see it before than?

Nice rig, sure

I know! The first thing I thought when I saw it, was Newsboy. But this looks a little more functional / thrashable than a Newsboy.

Thats nice but it is strange that someone with a history of making MTB would opt for road size wheels on a mountain bike.
