Is there actually any genuine reason why those designs are as they are, do they offer any advantages over a ‘standard’ frame design, or are they purely an attention seeking exercise?
of course not,
mind you something that occured to me on todays ride, my bike is actually niche, it isn’t singlespeed, it is not a downhill monster, it is not rigid, fixed or any other fad. It is actually designed to be ridden cross country at speed, how niche is that!!!Posted 7 years agoaracerSubscriber

As mentioned, not mine, just the best piccy of a Corratec I found with a quick search – Lifer’s is actually more the picture I was after! A friend of mine was sponsored by them back in the ’90s and had one of those (no pictures) and another friend is now (didn’t want to post up a picture of him without asking, hence the random one).Posted 7 years agowwaswasSubscriber
