If you recall, the late 80’s and early 90’s Ford put out a really ugly car called the Ford Taurus. No matter how much they dolled it up, it was still an ugly Taurus. It’s kinda like that saying (slightly modified) “If you put lipstick on Ugly…its still Ugly.”
So here were are looking at the Ford Taurus of Sea Otter. Mountain Cycle makes some wacky looking DH frames.
Perhaps Mountain Cycle thought that if they design their bikes the way they do, it will stand out from the rest. With all the technology and abilities to design and create a beautiful frame, you’d think they’d take advantage of it.
