    A bit of a distance? I take it we are measuring in miles rather than yards?

    Look at Transition Bottlerocket and Orange Blood.
    They’re the same but different.

    bandit?

    Not a Horst link though!

    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, after all…

    But, there’s only so many ways to make a bike so cosmetic similiarities are to be expected. When you look at the Nic and the Vitus there the pivots, linkage etc look pretty different.

    Had to be done!

    Still gave me a lol.

    there is is again…

    The NP is a single-pivot though, to be fair.

    When you look at the Nic and the Vitus there the pivots, linkage etc look pretty different.

    Erm, obviously it’s not the same frame, but they’re shockingly similar.

    A bit off topic, but could somebody explain the Five filing cabinet connection. I get that the Five looks a bit crude, but why a filing cabinet? Why not a tractor or something?

    because, a 5 ‘in flight’ sounds like a filing cabinet* falling down a flight of stairs.

    and they look like filing cabinets.

    (*full of nails/spanners etc.)
