    So – two French men design and build a bike around a German engine, whilst citing their love of the Mini – which was designed by a Turkish Greek – and then go and slap the British flag on it ?

    Like the bike though – cool fork design …….

    Ha, ha, ha... Yeah my Mini Cooper GT has British heritage reworked by BMW, a Japanese clickshift-auto and a French engine with orange British flag side markers!

    By "Trail" I think they are talking about the trail on the forks. I cant even see how that thing would be rideable. The trail has to be over a foot at least.

    Well looking at the side view the girders do lurch forward quite a bit from the rake. So my first take was probably off

    That bike looks like something Arnold Schwarzenegger would ride in Terminator. The technology of today what a great time to be alive.

    If they are trying to promote that tire as a trail tire, I think that they picked the right bike. When you get stuck you won't be too far from the road.

    I like the trailing link forks. Wonder how light they are compared to telescopic??? Also like that it seems you can change the belt without removing anything.
