I think you miss the point of their effort. It wasn't to reinvent the bike. It was to responsibly source a bike that has the capacity to run any and all standards available, allow for future innovations to mesh with the bike design. The huge news is that they sourced virtually everything from...more

I love to find the the playful flow of the trail, where thoughts are erased and movements are telepathic and where the fun line unfolds in front of you like a roller coaster. P
