    And I thought it was ugly in white 😯

    I quite like that.

    I Like it, just because you have no taste!

    and what are the massive advantages of “integrated Stem Technology” that make it worth designing a frame that hit every branch on the way down.

    **** all, I’d imagine. Got to love marketing departments eh? 😉

    I quite like that.

    Harry. I think you need to go and sit on the naughty step and have a think about what it is you’ve just said

    Whether I’d want one or not is another matter entirely, but as for aesthetics I can safely report that there are much worse looking frames out there than this… Remember the horror that was the Marin Alchemist? Or the Whyte PRST?

    The main advantage is that anyone overtaking you in a race will have to stop on the side of the trail to dry wretch when they look at it…..WIN!

    Surely no one would be able to overtake you.

    I knew the fashion of stem slamming would go just a little to far.

    It has nioce clean lines, looks fast.
    but i don’t see the reason behind doing what they have done thou.

    Well if we went on looks we’d still be using quill stems (IMO).

    I’m guessing a much stiffer front end and shorter head tube as the sum of the top tube and downtube diameter no longer has to be the same as the headtube length.

    I quite like it!

    Fewer sharp bits to catch your tackle on in the event of a front dismount.

    Lejia de ojos. (But I don’t think the phrase really exists en Spanish, you’d probably just say “fea de cojones” or similar…)

    Looks OK, bit weird but I suppose I’d get used to it. Pity the 29er doesn’t use a stem like that.

    Can’t honestly say it looks nice but I’d have fewer injuries with one of those stems. I reckon the concept might well take off…

    Muy Bien. (Very Good) 8)

    I like that – and I have a design degree so I’m right 😉

    Not a full on integrated setup like the new TT bikes – kind of odd but I like the lines it has allowed the designer to use. Not sure there are any cycling specific advantages to it though.

    Can’t help thinking of the liquid gritstone grinding paste that will lodge between the frame and stem on virtually every ride. Couldn’t see it lasting long unless you were prepared to strip it down for cleaning after each ride.

    Oh no! Someone’s doing something different with bike aesthetics! Burn them!

    I think it looks cool, less gopping than most “WOW Look at my new xc bike that gets me up the hill a few seconds quicker than my fat mates” that get posted up.

    I saw the Look one up close, it looks excellent. Quite like this one too.

    That’s doing weird things to my eyes – it looks like the back wheel’s off the ground…. except it’s not 😯

    My LBS has got a carbon one on display, it looks funny/nice/racey in equal amounts in real life…and it’s light doing the LBS pickyuppy test,..

    What does it transform into?

    Bizarrely enough I was looking for picture of that yesterday…..ahh barely seems like 21 years ago 😯

    (for the non Canadian ex-pats-I used to own one of those).

    I like it. Reminds me of naked street bikes like Buell. But then I put red cable outers on my Cotic, so wtf do I know? 😀

    I’m not sure about the practicalities of the integrated stem thing.
    But, I like the overall look & particularly the darkened seat tube to ‘hide’ the triangles and just leave the outline.

    Like a cycling version of a Tron bike.

    The potential for getting a giggleberry pinched in the gap between stem and frame is rather offputting.

    All Marins are ugly more girders than an orange 🙂
