No chain, no worries. Well clear of the mud.

Seriously though, anyone ridden these offroad? The gearing is 36" so it should be technically possible.

I ran into a guy a few weeks back with an old bike with that build out at a local park with tons of trails. He claims to ride it on the trails, even trails with hills, but I didn't see him go off the road. It was crazy weird to even see a bike that mixed in with all the mountain bikes at the park.

Of course his seemed to have the extremely large front wheel, I think its larger than that one by far... but its hard to tell by the pic.

Is that Cannondale's answer to Trek's 69'r?

If that looks like fun how about mtn biking on a unicycle? I did the Mt. Equinox, VT hillclimb a few years back. There was a guy that did it on a unicycle and got a standing ovation at the finish line.

I ride one all the time. It is not all that trail worthy, but of course a nice trail can be ridden on it. It is the garage bike you ride while waiting to ride, or ride resting after a ride.

Not stable. These bikes have a major tendency toward faceplant. I'll bet it's practically impossible to ride one off a 1' drop. The rear wheel would stay high when the front dropped & boom! your center of mass is forward of the front axle. I'd be impressed as hell to see one of these in something technical. Even more than a uni.

please. huge tailwhips and 30' drops on these are no problem, just have to run dual compound downhill tires. and don't get me started about their climbing ability. OK this post probably wasn't all that funny, unless it's 2AM for you too.

Hey man, fair warning... my buddy Chuck just returned his... bent out fork. He's a big dude, but the same exact bike, and he was just cruising on his. Be careful out there!
