I was in Chicago yesterday and saw this bike in the Garmin window. I asked the sales guys if they knew anything and they didn't have anything to say on it. Sometimes, these "image" bikes can be crap but this had full XTR, Magura Louise disc brakes, a DT wheelset (3.1 I believe), and other top shelf components. Does anybody know anything about the bike and frame?

Looks like a Whyte front end. I've never seen that rear design though. WTF with the QR on the rear shock? The FD is mounted on the rear triangle & the pivot point is not concentric with the BB. That seems like it would throw the chain under heavy compression.

:confused:

The front end looks similar to what was on my K1200RS.
On the motorcycle it's called Telelever.
However, on this monstrosity, it looks whimpy and unsealed.
Just another set of bearings to loosen up, get dirty, and maintain.
In the end, it's probably just another fru fru boutique bike. XTR components does not a mountain bike make!

Yeah, but it's a BMW. It's gotta be the greatest thing that ever hit the earth. DUH.

"BMW. The ultimate brain wash."
