The Spaceframe

Carrying on with the bike theme, here is, in my mind, one of the most amazing feats of design in the cycling industry.  Known as the Spaceframe, the bike is designed and made by Jeff Jones.  It’s a duel suspension mountain bike that doesn’t have a single shock absorber or pivot.  The whole bike is constructed from titanium and it relies on the flex of the intricate web of tubes.  I can’t imagine how it rides but it seems to be getting rave reviews so far.  For more reviews check Bike Radar or Dirt Rag.  You can also find more info on Jones’ website.
