    so weird looking.

    the frame makes the wheels look like 26'ers.

    It's kind of an ugly bike.

    I can't believe that people focus on how this bike looks, when the real story is it's radical geometry. It is very different and I hope that we see more testing on this bike.

    Aside from the slack-ness and the ridiculous wheelbase, I'm not so sure I would say this is far different from a ton of stuff already out there. Unless your talking about nearly full customization and setup at the factory?

    Also, might get a warmer reception in the DH forum? Zero AM application.

    Weird looking bike..... interesting concept. Hard to argue with that kind of back to back to back, ad infinitum testing. The clock don't lie.

    Did it say what size those wheels were?

    We already know these ultra long bikes work thanks to Mondraker, offering custom fitting and building is a cut above what everyone else is doing though.

    I feel obligated to point out that the frame, shock and fork package is only £50 more than a Nomad with a Monarch and it's patented 'whatever' tune in this country.

    I want one so very much.

    Not true, 1/2 the story is it's climbing geometry, and who else makes a bike with a seat tube angle this steep?

    Totally agree - I want to keep an eye on this bike to see how it develops.

    Also from Eurobike I want to see what happens with the brew nitro shox. That is an interesting read especially if you dig deeper then just the PB article.

    Im getting pretty burnt out on a few angles changing and everyone making new bikes out like they're a technological advancement. They welded a tube a little different, its not revolutionary.

    A homemade looking horst link bike for 8-10k? Im just not all that excited about that. That price range opens a LOT of doors for custom full suspension bikes.

    Dont get me wrong, it IS different. A lot. Does it really matter though? There was a great video of a bunch of guys trying to ride up a technical rock garden. They'd stall out quickly and end up walking. It showed 2 or 3 riders doing that... then a pro rider BLASTS by and cleans the entire thing in about a second without a hiccup. Theres not a bike or setup in the world that would have made those first riders come close.

    It sorta seems that bikes topped out somewhere around early 2000. We got full suspension bikes that pedal well, have long travel, and really are more capable than earlier bikes. Since then things seem to have just changed to different, not hugely better. Once the industry figured out rear suspensions, ditched URT and pure junk, we havent really moved forward much at all. We just change some tube lengths and angles.

    Yep. Another option, but not revolutionary.

    Frames are tubes and angles, even carbon ones. Changes are almost always incremental but bikes are a lot different then 15 years ago And if it was 2000 we would all still be on 70 degree head angles or 40lb DH bikes.
    These are both great bikes and are in general the same. Frame, wheels, suspension etc. These guys are pushing the geometry limit and hats off to them for trying something different.

    I've never wished my Nomad had a slacker head angle and when I tested the large and XL back to back I prefered the large so I have no interest in a longer top tube (I'm 6'1"). A steeper seat tube angle, sure. Who wouldn't want their seat to not move forward when it's lowered? Besides that this bike's geo is too "radical".
    Keep the Country country.

    I actually prefer my seat to slide forward when lowered. It keeps it out of the way.

    Needs 26.5+ tires. Boost spacing. Electronic shifting and suspension. Dimpled mini stems. 60mm innner dia rims. And press-fit..don't forget press fit.

    I have a Canfield One and it's a bike that fits this niche (trail-able 8'' bike with strong DH manners). It's fantastic for what it is. While not exactly the extreme geometry of this bike, it sort of proves the concept. You'd have to pry it from my cold dead hands.. quite honestly tho - the One still excites me more than this bike...but I'm a tad conservative regarding radical geometry not to mention the prototype look and horst suspension doesn't get me too jazzed.

    Looks like they included the Stoker's saddle but forgot the Captain's.

    That's some impressive 3D work! Kudos to whoever made it.
