    Ugliest MTB I have ever seen

    I have seen many ugly MTB's but this one has eluded my radar and it's time to see if there is an uglier one ever built. If you have a pic of one post it here and maybe there could be a vote. Here is my entry:

    Too many bikes, and just enough time to ride them.

    That's a folding bike, right? I feel those deserve a bit of a pass on being ugly.

    That is the best looking folding bike I have ever seen.
    Also looks like it would be the best riding folding bike.
    Just stick it in granny and start grinding.

    I've never been a big fan of this particular Y-bike.

    Yeah, Y-frames would/should dominate any All-Ugly list.

    If you've puked after seeing one Y-frame, you've puked after seeing them all.

    If you want to see some ugly Mountain Bikes check out the Orlando, Fl Craigslist on a regular basis. For the most part ugly and over priced. I keep seeing on this forum recommendations to buy used but the people here want way too much for their bikes.

    Wow. I don't even know what to say.

    And a 90-degree HTA? Staggering.

    I'm not certain, but are those tyres Maxxis Hookworms with the treads paint filled?! If not, then wow, those are ugly tyres. If so, then double wow, that's some serious commitment to uglification of the already ugly.

    Looks like it would handle well though. Bwahahaha.

    No where to jump but further up the ugly clump if your base bike is a Mantra. Lots of winners in this thread though....to think, Cannondales used to be kind of staid.

    Ok, let's give credit where credit is due.
    Folding bikes get a buy out because I am guessing it to be impossible to make one that folds and still looks good.

    But there is no excuse for this monstrosity.

    Softride also has a series of road bikes that are hideous.

    Definitely deserves to be on the list. While we're at it:

    - A big serving of Cannondale: Super V's, Killer V's, Prophets, Ravens.
    - A big, steaming pile of ProFlex.
    - Garnished witha nugget of L-bend bar ends.

    If by backward you mean, like, metaphorically "ass-backward" then I agree. Pretty sure it was intended that way though....and it ain't mine, thank jeebus.

    HA I kinda like those Fuji/Marlboro frames, Nashbar has them for $99 right now:

    Fuji Marlboro Folding Bike Frame - Bike Frames

    Cigarettes and sports, great combo. I read that it doesn't fold up very easy, as you have to remove the seatpost. Just yesterday I had the issue of trying to take my bike on the trolley (our version of the subway here in San Diego), there was simply no room and and I had to wait for the next one. So I peruse those Fuji's and Montagues every so often, but always opt against it.

    Maybe they heard someone say you'd have to be smoking something to buy one, but picked the wrong something.
    But if you close your eyes it becomes so easy to see

    I'd give the Mantra my vote, with the Kawasaki green FSR Extreme a close second.

    Why that color is experiencing a come back is beyond me.....
