Interesting bike, but it might be too trick for its own good.  The shock mounts don't seem to me to be engineered to handle long term stress, and when you look at the mount on the front end you see it is just a bolt.  One good bottom-out and then what.  And I hate to think what replacing the rear or front end would cost.  Moreover,  I wonder if they have taken into account what a ding on the frame would do to the structural integrity.  I mean, hats off to them for making it this way rather than carbon fibre, which is not nearly as recyclable, but in the end this is a bike, not a work of art, and you can make it fancy all you want but if it develops cracks in the usual areas, then it is for shit.  I wonder how the original prototype is holding out?
