I know it's just because of combo of water-bottle-belly and big wheels, but the proximity of the front wheel to the down tube is a huge part of looking "aggressive" or not, to me. Them being super close just makes me think "XC, stupid-quick steering, too easy to get out...more

This looks incredibly similar to the new unannounced Jekyll that Ropey has been riding. High pivot Horst link idler. Whats the point of Cannondale and GT being separate brands anymore? Seems to be it would make more sense for Cannondale to pretty much ... more »

Do you actually like the shape of that frame or just the color? I personally find that design awkward and unbalanced. It probably rides amazing but ot does not look good.

whatever it is, it looks to use the same front triangle mold that all their current models use....

Sorry, to be more clear, I meant the communities response to the guy. It was clear that it was just one guy with all those accounts, and he was acting irrationally, but I don't remember him actually attacking anyone personally (other than that one comment ... more »

What are Vital's staff's feelings about posts like that? I hate to poop all over someones business and hard work, even when they are abrasive in their marketing responses. Looking at those photos and the builds for them, someone put in a lot of hard ... more »

The bottom bracket is concentric with the bottom pivot, so the linkage will be "exposed" but the bottom bracket itself will be inside the aluminum (I assume its not carbon) link

Run a shorter fork, will lower the bb and steepen the HTA. This bike and the privateer 140mm bike are completely pointless.

I've been wondering about a single sided linkage fork, like a one night stand between a lefty and a trust fork. I'll see if I have time to fire up fusion 360 this week.
