Less clutter in the middle thus making rear swingarm a little shorter. Main frame may add a little weight by placing rib there but the back end looks superclean! Who knows if it was possible to make downtube a little lighter but seems easy to weld in overall.

Reminds me of the Antidote Lifeline, without the BB pivot on the lower link...

Just saw one of those yesterday. Kid claimed it's the only one in the USA. The linkage seems to violate my understanding of the VPP counter-rotating linkage patent. Pretty bike but a lot of stuff right in front of the tire with no mud guard. I prefer my V10.

Haha. Yeah, I know Brian. Good guy! I've pedaled that bike around the parking lot too...

Did you happen to notice the horrid derailleur cable routing near the BB? Such an afterthought...
