Yeah, that's pretty cool, they've had that in the works for a while now. Those are the same guys that make the Go-Peds.

Come on, you've gotta admit that it looks pretty cool with the front wheel just sort of floating out there. Star Wars-ish. It does have a bit of a cheapy chines-ish quality to it though.

eh... first off it looks ridiculously cheaply made and that whole supension setup just doesnt look very usable and looks weird... you cant beat a decent set of proper ohlins or even some wp forks

BUT.... i give credit where credit is due...... just not this time :lol:

What happens when you case a jump on that thing? Can you do a stoppie? It just seems like that whole front leading link (?) design is just going to get ripped off and shoved underneath the bike when something goes wrong...

The weak promotional video shows a rider doing circles, really low, short wheelies, and pathetic stoppies. With a better rider, it looks stunts are possible. Agreed on the leading link getting torn off.

Credit for thinking outside the box! However...

This kind if suspension setup for the rear I can understand but why complicate the front so much?

It's like taking a spoon bending it downward then attaching another spoon to it at ninety degree angle and bending it straight again... Here you go son eat your ice cream with this, it's new and unusual.

And all engineers know this "If it doesn't look good, it probably wont work good either." There's actually a correlation between looks and working.

lol on the first video they are 2 very weak stoppies.. after he "wheelies"


I dont see anything put pavement for that thing.. however it would have looked really sweet in a newer cr frame or something...

no one know what the next 20 years hold.. we may all have 110 volt bikes, or hydrogen powered that be sweet...
