    It's certainly different... Nice to see someone happy to push the envelope a little. I'm guessing "folding" isn't one of its points of difference.

    Interesting design, seems to me that the back of the bike is really heavy, having everything crammed into a small area. The rear probably performs well but the whole bike just doesn't seem to...'work'.

    Looks like one of the old Trimbles, if any one remembers them from around '93...

    Here's what the manufacturer had to say about the headtube strength...

No-one's ever damaged the front end of one of these and the m9 is likely stronger in every way than its predecessors.

    Thanks all for the appreciation.

    Yea, big companies are getting scared of these kinds of bikes. $3500 for a custom, carbon, gearbox bike is a damn good deal. I'd ride on in a second, but then again I appreciate good engineering and understand how carbon is stronger than steal.
