  • New Dutch bike with an unfortunate name.
  • Maybe something got lost in the translation, but calling a bike EPO doesn’t sound like a good marketing move to me.
    Using a Gates belt drive, Brooks saddle and non-standard hubs doesn’t quite match up with the aim to “keep costs down” either.

    But then I suppose that’s what happens when someone from Design Academy Eindhoven has a go at making a bike.
    Tsk, designers, eh?

    Judging by the amount of acronyms plastered all over my Cube I doubt there is any combination of 3 letters Cube haventt used 😉

    Can A Bike Be Both Cheap And Beautiful?

    I know I’m not a designer and all that but I’m sure they didn’t manage either

    If you lower the saddle, does the bottom bracket get closer to the ground?

    I quite like that but wonder why not put the fork on the rh side for neatness ?

    Target price 400 euros, for all of it or just the frame ?

    After the last “Brown bits” on a bike photoshop thread I wonder if anyone could shop what it would look like after you catch your first dog egg 🙂

    You could use small adjustments in BB height to adjust belt tension, I suppose. 😀

    Where would you mount the brake caliper? Admittedly, they seem to have got around that at the rear by mounting it on the bottom of the stay…

    Rotate the fork on the clamps so its on the rhs, fit the wheel so the disc is on the right.. job done ?
