    Yay or nay? I love it, hope it takes off and gets a bit cheaper!

    Why aren't I surprised you love this abomination? It's been done. It's not coming back in any major way. Spend your brass so I can start laughing.

    You sound like a roadie complaining about disc brakes :) I reckon it looks cool - form following function always looks good.

    I thought it was going to be the new Orange but it looks more like a lemon.

    All these weird concept bike start-ups which try and solve a problem that doesn't exist - if they have money to throw away, just give me some.

    Given the amount of development and marketing that goes into fork stiffness and stiction minimisation, Id say there is a problem that still can be addressed.

    Surprised at the hate - I reckon its good to see something a bit different. Id love to see how it rides.

    I reckon they would have been told to ride it up the service road on Whistler mountain, the lift guys would not have let that thing on. ;)
    I'm keen to know how it would handle though, an active shock instead of suspension forks on the front could be bloody amazing.

    If you have to ask, you wouldn't understand. It's a reboot of hipster garvin/proflex etc. Right up your alley.

    Nah, they were just forks on a normal frame - this is something different.
