That's pretty wild...very cool. However, I feel it needs a fork to match, something along the same lines. The fork that's on there looks kind of stuck on, not really part of the design as a whole. May have to check the thread out to see how it rides.

Reading the review at the URL above, this statement stuck out at me: "The first thing I noticed when I hopped on the bike was that the top tube(s) were far enough apart that my thighs would occasionally rub against them while seated. An annoyance that I was able to correct for. After the first few minutes it only happened while leaning the bike hard into corners".

While I agree it looks cool, it would need someone with wider hips than mine to comfortably pedal with that set of widely spaced of top tubes -- I'd either bloody the inside of my knees or ruin my joints by flailing away bowlegged. I've always wondered about the Jones bikes because of that too. The wider triangulation on the down tube should stay out of the way...

36er pics from Pennell

That's some interesting looking tubing manipulation. I know Rob has also built a 36er frame based on the Coker Monster Cruiser wheel size. What is the possibility of getting some pics of that frame on this forum? Thanks
