    It's to avoid toe overlap.

    Not sure what is to explain really. It is just a long and slack geometry hardtail with a trust performance linkage fork. It is waaaay to expensive for me but some people really like these forks.

    Just glanced at my watch - time for the geometry pendulum to swing back.

    The linkage fork make it look much slacker than it really is. Forget about the fork legs and look where is the wheel axle.

    Talk about that "in the bike" feeling. How in the hell are you supposed to steer that or lift the front wheel?

    It's a different build. I don't get it. Why the dinky cassette? Some kind of hardtail DH bike? Flatland cruiser?

    It’s a single speed with a chain tensioner, which looks like it can be swapped out for a derailleur.

    Question Re: Go big or go home...

    Curious about the blend of two different tires that were chosen, too.
    It would be interesting indeed to learn the details behind this bicycle.

    Too small and expensive for me but slack hardtails are fun. You have to stand up and drive the bike around corners but the combination of snappy a celery from a rigid rear end and ability to drive the front wheel from the head angle and long fork is fun in lots of terrain. I find modern MTB geometry better in just about all conditions. If this was my size I would totally ride it.

    Touche. I think the point still obtains, though. :)

    It doesn't matter where you look, it's a fucking eyesore. Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

    You may be into living rooms bikes but other people, including me, spend more time riding their bikes than looking at them. I'll also add that your judgment is just another case of resistance to change.

    Besides. What if regardless of the aesthetics it rides/handles way better than a bike you think look better.?

    I don't know man, I keep going back to the photo, looking for a Honzo'esque geometry...but that STA looks to be way steeper, and a vertical line from the axle to crown looks super slacked out as well. This almost looks like a concept bike to try something out.
