Could've looked a lot better if the lines of the rear triangle matched the rest of the frame.....too angular....throws everything off

undecided

it looks as though they shaped the top tube so that it would resemble their logo. If it does so without adding unneccessary weight that's alright. I agree that it would look better if the seatstays were curved a little bit to match the lines of the front triangle.

Ahhhh, errrrr, eehhhhh, uuhhhhh...what's that? Hope there's a reason for that hydroformed tube shape, like supreme strength or something, but like others said by itself it's just ahhhh, errrrr, uuuggghly.

I like it! But then, I like art deco design with the curves and the "swoopiness", and that bike's got a little art deco in it.

I'm going to have to differ with you on that one. As retarded as that looks, it's a one-off and that's great. It's dissapointing to see a company like Santa Cruz who has been known for their classic, efficient looks give way to the urge to overstylize.....

The more I look at it...

The more it grows on me. Specs look very nice.

If it was a Horst Link I think I'd be heading to the dealer to place an order. I'm still considering it though. I would love to hear an unbiased ride report on it.
