Spending $18k on a Generalized would be like spending $100k on a Ford Focus.

They could have polished it, I mean all those scratches have just got to upset the air flow, but interesting they are still using spokes which look kind of out of place on that thing. But a 950 gramme frame with a one piece bottom bracket and even, even internal cable routing as if that has not been done before. Me thinks it is going to be a toy for someone with more money than sense to pose on or be a garage queen to make it look like the owner is sporty unless some high profile rider gets given one to promote it. I wonder how strong it is and does it accept knobblies.
