    That frame reminds me of a muddy fox bike I saw/sat on at a race in the 90s. I’ve never seen anything like it before or since. I think it was a prototype at the time and never made production?
    I was still riding a fully rigid steel diamond back at the time so this aluminium bouncy thing was almost space age!

    The stems are nice.

    That central derailleur DH is an abortion on wheels.

    Love the stems. Very similar to my 77designz one but looks a little cleaner with the bolts underneath

    It looks a lot like they’ve invented the Suzuki TL1000S, only in CNC.

    It’s an acquired taste, but I would think if they had any serious plans for production (it’s very much a work in progress) that all that unsightlyness would be encased away from sensitive eyes, a la Honda RN-01.

    It’s far more sensible to place it there on an offroad bike than have it dangling in the mud and vulnerable to trail damage.

    Another +1 for those Three Rock stems. Unlikely to place nicely with my 40mm risers though.

    [Tom: This is actually my favourite feature, a handbrake for a bike! Would also be handy on trains when all the retaining straps are missing or knackered too.]


    @tomhoward
    might I introduce you to the bicycle hand brake.

    Available in beige or given your obvious predilection, for only £30 each including delivery, a range of natty colours.
