So is this the Holy Grail? (He asks, wishing that he still rode street.) If Profile makes it, it's probably well engineered and strong. But companies have been trying to make these reliable for decades now. Are we here?

From the old comments below, it sounds like this might have been the birth of VitalRAW.

That's one sexy pedal.

Sorry to be bitter, but I guess Paragon stole the design from Black Cat.

I just couldn't look at that fat bike. And he's yet another maker to copy my friends dropout design. Along with Spec. It would be nice if patents were cheaper so average folks could get one.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that that's not so much a stoppy. My theory being that it's an individual with trials skills, hopping on their front wheel. Or their about to go over the bars to face.

Just for the record... I never intended to imply that the bike was designed by anyone else than BH and apparently Dave Weagle. I only intended to say that the hydroformed tubes that this prototype was made of were likely catalog items from Taiwan. I'm curious about the shock and it's sizing. Is that standard DH length, or longer. Looks big.

The soundtrack was all that kept me going on that one. At least it's not neon.

ButterMan. Nice work keeping up with VanDerSteeze. By the way, I thought you were a grown man. But judging from your joyous boyish giggles in that video I'm now thinking more like junior high. Well done Sir. And apparently, well done Rocky Mountain.

I could be wrong. I don't know BH, in fact this is the first I've heard of them. But I doubt that they have hydroforming in house. These could be fully custom hydro shapes made just for them though.

Roots. I always dreamed of a Ritchey. Always one step behind.

I'm still stuck on "Steel is Real." So I'd like to think that Ally is still well alive. I hope that those are fine tuned to the designer's specks.

Either shapes from other brands or from molds that never quite sold at Interbike. What ever fits. A factory could have a basic frame set for sale and be able to adapt almost any suspension geometry with the mounts.

You would be surprised what you can just order, or get for free as a sample, now a days. Companies have hydroform molds from old bikes just hanging around. They would rather make some money off of them.
