I like it. No inconsistencies in wheel/brake position. No daft drop-outs with screws and the like. Fair enough it is carbon so inherantly ugly and the name is stupid.

Daft and over engineered... bottle openers on drop outs are cool, but pointless, definitely not a marketing point.. And don't get me started on that weird soft tail gimmick! :roll:

It's not April the 1st already is it?

I don't know how much wronger that could be!!

Whats the matter with people! :shock: Have they got nothing better to do? The MTB was dialled by the mid nineties, so stop pissing about!

Why don't they spend their time constructively, like i do! :D

But if you use that drop out on enough beers does the ugly tranny 'love you long time'


Maybe it becomes lovely tranny :wink:

What's with that silly waist on the seat tube for the front mech?

Why didn't they just make it all the smaller diameter? It would have looked better.

And that soft tail thing..... :shock:

AND that bottle opener, that's convenient! :?
