    It's more about how it rides, mind – let us know how that bit gets on.

    Might just be my eyes but that bike looks as if it was photoshopped onto those backgrounds…

    Looks nice though, any chance of a side by side pic with the bluepig to see the difference in tube profiles etc?

    That's a Hanson (sic) looking bike.

    You've not used the custom sticker kit that 'lets you personalise your frame your way' 🙂

    Hang on I though you had a blue pig?

    BTW it's tidy.

    Looks tidy, other than frame material, what's the difference between this and the pig?

    I was told they only got into the country yesterday ..?

    Looks good, white forks are a good choice.

    Can you buy a medium next time mate.

    i'm taken with in principle but it just looks fat and bulky complared to the blue pig.

    steel frames just look better. much cleaner. but as said, it's how it rides that matters.

    now stop showing off and go get it dirty…..

    …..then tells us how it compares to the pig.

    I like it actually. Only points I don't understand on a bike like that are no QR seat clamp and having a triple and a long mech instead of a 2+bash and med mech.

    I'm more of a steel hardtail man but the weight difference to the pig is attractive.

    Now if I am being picky. One white cable? And with Avid mech discs I have found the cable runs nicer to the inside of the fork leg then up like you have it.

    Another cheap, dull frame. Sorry ton.

    How does it compare to the pig? and don't say braap!

    where did you order from?

    Another cheap, dull frame.

    Oh! I think the work Brant has done in designing the bop and the pig is very innovative and interesting: OS headtube, lots of butting, slack head and steep seat, bridgeless seat stays, three finger chain stay, brakes mounted on the opposite chain stay. All fairly unique features, so what's your criteria for "interesting"?

    1st pic – has someone next door seriously washed a handkerchief on its own…? 😉

    Nice bike though…

    By the time I got to the third pic my vision had gone blurred

    Are you running a bike version of the car scrappage scheme?
    Looks big.

    Think it looks gopping and the colour is grim.

    Mleh, it ain't my bike and looks don't matter a toss ultimately.

    Be interesting to know how it rides but given most people tend to post their feedback after the oh-my-god-my-new-bike-i've-ridden-it-once-and-it's-ace first ride it's pretty irrelevant. Let us know in a month eh?

    looks wise – i reckon it'd look better in a smaller size, bikes are like women in that respect – generally smaller sizes look better!

    Still not sure about naming a bike after a song tho..

    Looks cramped for such a large frame. 24" TT on a 20" frame is kinda short.

    If they had sloped the TT it would look a whole lot better too. Those rear rim stickers need to go as well.
