  • Interesting definition of no compromises that includes rim-brakes. Obviously they feel those fancy-shmancy disc-brakes are just a fad. And suspension? Feh!

    There's a lot more radical simplicity and beauty in the average fixed gear bike than in this.

    Cheers,
    Mike

    hmm id have to agree with the abovfe … that bike may be designed by renowend designers but even they can have an off day… on disc brakes ? and outside gears.. if they wanted to make it simple and top noch do internal gears and disc brakes….. not to speak og the colours…….

    bikes have many purposes other than to look 'cool' the functionality of the gear mech and knobly tread is a thing of beauty. same goes for the hand built frame. nice job, i want one!

  • Looks very fashionable to me. I like how they wound those rainbow stripes all over the frame. Would very much like to test-drive one.

    The seat post is not adjustable in height, so they custom weld a frame for you to fit your posture? And what if you find it is just a bit to high/low to be comfortable. you break out the angle grinder/welding machine to modify it?

    But at least it does have a carbon-look seat to give your nuts the support they need.

  • Some comments are very funny… just have a look on actual bikes production and you'll see that some bike have no suspension fork, still VBrake or a non adjustable seat post… did you know wooden frames? It does exist!
