I don't find it particularly unsightly and yes the seat is out of place but the price is damn ugly. 30K! Seriously? 10% of that would be still OTT.

With the recent animal inspired bikes, here's a shark. The headtube looks like the BT Superbike's.

And they appear not to have grasped how a saddle or bars are positioned. All that money and it's still got three chains externally mounted. I wonder how far the 2200w motor will push you?

There's a review here:

Based on the quoted battery size you might be able to get 50 to 60kms out of a charge.

Indeed, it takes true dedication to build a bike which makes you ignore that groupset and set of wheels...

I can only hope someone has done that as a joke. :? Seeing a bike such as that setup that way absolutely destroys me. :cry:
Just the wheelset would make my year, let alone that frame in my favourite color.

I'll give you the Trek (especially with Spinergys, eww) but though shalt not take the name of Mountain Cycle in vain, even if the handlebars are a bit iffy.
