by 14

The WTFs are coming thick and fast this week, today a concept render of a 39-inch wheeled XC bike with geared steering. Behold:

It’s by a designer named Patrick N from Singapore, and there are more images on his Behance portfolio. He says it’s designed to give a similar seated position to current 29ers, has gearing in the steering so you can change the steering speed, and is patent pending. As you might expect, the wheelbase is about 20cm longer than most downhill bikes.

Still, it does look a bit more practical than the Roost Carbon.
