    Looks like a typical college design project. Doesn't look to bad, although the price is daft.

    Why did they have to have some Dorris and the Humber bridge in the background ? Is the product that dull?

    Should lock the bike up. Some chav might walk past and run off with it.

    There is no accounting for taste i suppose. I would ignore my taste in things though.. I was brought up on Findus Crispy Pancake's on a council estate for the first half of my life. So i have no authority in the taste department. And i Love Crispy Pancakes. :D

    At least you wouldn't get run over at a T-junction with those rims.








    Second thoughts... having seen some motorists not even stop and move their heads at junctions, we'd probably get knocked off still.

    You know you are in trouble when a company posts 20 high resolution pics of its latest product and none of them are a simple view of the object itself in its entireity!

    that bird looks like a minger - really bad ombre too.

    weird looking, I personally don't find the form beautiful, other than the fact the orange and black contrasting colour go well. then again it will look good on any kind of bikes.

    I can't imagine it being very robust either. The frame is flawed. that top tube will break at the seat post.

    they basically increased the length of a standard top tube by twice, and put a kink in the tube (which adds stress to the natural material) and then that's the point of loading...looks like some kind of arty-farty type person came up with the idea without being intelligence/brain-processed

    just had a good look at it again, the frame may act as an arch, but the connection at the stays can also be a weak point. there is a reason for Bike Bottom Bracket....they basically took that away and move it to the back wheel. also the frame looks flexible or rather the bottom bracket looks flexible as it doesn't have enough bracing, i.e. the seattube

    Any bicycle with no seat tube is fundamentally flawed.. BIG style

    it brakes all the rules of frame making.

    the loss of the seat tube will add to the weight of the rest of the frame to a greater amount.

    she needs some FMBs on.

    Just what I was thinking.

    Interesting that they give a 5cm seat adjustment, but claim it will fit anyone 165cm to 190cm!

    Shurely shome mishtake?

    I doubt the target customer is going to get a bike fit done.
