    Some overpaid banker will buy it, to mince around a trail centre once per year, no doubt.

    Personally, I don’t like it, so even if I had £3K burning a hole in my pocket, I wouldn’t buy it..

    I think I’m with you xiphon but’s nice to have seen one.

    I said to the chap in the shop that you’d have to be sh*t hot on a bike to get away with riding something like that!

    Have seen an original CR7, it was prettier and cooler.

    I don’t really see the point of having a Ti and carbon fs?

    Ti is springy right and carbon is stiff right. I suspect that that combination of ti and carbon would present the riding characteristics of a wet noodle.

    Saw one of these in Nirvana Cycles this afternoon:

    It was ‘if you have to ask, you can’t afford it’ expensive. £3200 for frame only. Titanium front, carbon rear.

    I would expect that tiny swingarm pivot to play a bigger part in making it ride like a wet noodle.

    You can tell you have a small child geetee, as the spelling is poo. However you were clearly thinking of ‘Winnie’ 🙂

    P.S. That frame looks pale lilac.

    Titanium frames are only “springy” if you build them that way! 🙄

    Likewise, carbon is only stiff if the tubes are woven that way.

    As for the bike…I can’t help but think it’s a little under-designed given the price and the manufacturer.

    Got one of its bog-standard aluminium predecessors – brilliant bike.

    Not so shiny these days though.
