Floating above mud is slow and in fact doesn’t happen.

I’d be worried about abrasion resistance on the stays. Otherwise, it looks amazing.

Straight up design rip off of Conner Wood Bikes in Denver, shameful at the very least.

I’d be worried about a lawsuit, check out conner wood bikes, both in Colorado.

I don’t see the lawsuit potential at all.

Sure looks allot like a copied design to me. Check out the Conner Website, I just did. Not sure about a lawsuit but definitely not an original design just look at the seat stays, the seat tube, the hip joint below the seat collar, the chain stays, etc. etc. compared with the Conner Bikes.

It will be embarrassing to show up at NAHBS with such an obvious copy of the design, how would one promote it a new or clever or inventive?

They say imitation is the best form of flattery….
