    I'd like to see more pictures, but I'm OK with the box design if it works.

    Whatever option is going to be the best balance of light/strong/stiff without affecting the cost too adversely.

    Judging from the initial pictures, the funny looking junction looks to be a band-aid for accommodating the front derailleur, I would vote for a curved seat tube with a E-Type derailleur... or simply a 1X9.

    Some pictures that show it more closely would help in the decision, not enough information to go on at this point.

    Based upon the info at this point curved seat post tube. Junction box I don't have a problem with but would want more pictures, reviews and know how it holds up in the long term.

    I agree with the more pics up close, but I am more of a traditional look guy. If there are numbers to prove that it is: lighter, stiffer, more efficient, would love to see those too.

    Being a Clyde i want What ever keeps the bottom bracket as stiff as possible, i also tend to be a utilitarian and go with function before bling. I'm eagerly awaiting the arrival of this bike.

    When I first seen the photo of this bike. I never gave much thought to the junction box. Iíve seen something similar on a yeti. It was the top tube and not the seat tube however, Iíve always found it interesting.

    I guess, some might not like itÖbut, it does add a bit of uniqueness that helps it stand out from the other 29er FS on the market. Iím sure it will be a big seller no matter what.

    I guess I would like to see more pics also but I don't think That would be a good business move on Mikes part. I'm sure other manufactures are looking closely at every move. My vote is for the more clean/traditional look of the curved tube. And NOT for the CNC open splice "thingy". Remember- Form follows function!

    I have really been debating this since the post came out. The junction box looks cobbled. I vote for the curved seat post.

    I acutally like the CNC deal. I think it looks different and out of the ordinary. Kind of like it when people ask me about my bike.

    It wouldn't deter me from buying it. If I'm buying a Moto (already own a 29ProSL), I'm more concerned with value and function.
