    So what the f*** is that fork? It has crazy long stanchions and an extra lower crown just hanging in space as a brace?

    Good thing he's running NGK plugs and AGIP lubricants.

    I prefer Densos and ELF for my TR450.

    Wow. this thing has about a million percent pro-squat.

    Wow! The Kona is even weirder and has an equally unusual fork. It also seems to have longer than stock stanchions.


    I've invited him to join this discussion and tell us about his bikes. Please be nice enough that he sticks around and fills us in. Weird and kooky for sure but I'm straight up curious what lead him to do the extra chain on the Kona and how the hell he built those forks.

    I really want to ride that thing since I think there was never a bike designed to pedal so bad as this one.

    They are all works of art! show some respect. :no::stosh:

    The "gaint" acid (what this guy is probably on) has some mind boggling attributes.

    radially laced internal gear hub,
    left side shifter
    no fvcking idea whats going on with the floater!?! drum brake?
    drilled cranks
    lay-forward seat post so its impossible to ever sit down.

    Take a look at the new Morpheus carbon DH proto, or anything under the Wheeler brand. They a re surely in love with concentric BBs and claim they are Da Sh*t.... Oh, and you'll have to take into account those things are actually BEING SOLD by grown up companies, and not the offspring of a long, lonely winter night, a good toolbox and too many beers as we could think about the Kona and the Orange ones...

    The Pepsi sticker on the chainstay really detracts from an otherwise solid build. If it was a (Mexican) Coca Cola sticker, then I bet Alexis DH would be all over that sh!t.

    Morpheus will pedal better than this monstrosity as surprising as it may sound. Also Morpheus was designed for aerodynamics so you loose like a bazzilion of seconds every run ;)

    when you inevitably fall off the turd, it pulls the third floating brake arm into the spokes and grinds that jalopy to a halt.

    That fork is death-defying!

    He obviously takes a lot of time- i mean, the derailleur cages are painted! I'm thinking this guy is an artist and we're the butt of his joke.

    He's definitely got an eye for what a 10 year old would like to see in a bike.

    I sent him a message via ebay with a link to this thread and invited him to come discuss his bikes, specifically the fork mods. His replay was, "The fork come like that."

    I get your point. So if I buy a Morpheus and then cover it with stickers just like these beasts, I could beat Hill, Peatty, Gwinn or any other Top Ten DHer with my hands tied my back!!!!

    If anyone was looking to start a freak show bike museum, I give you exhibit A, B and C.

    Reminds me of the time Homer Simpson designed "The Car Built for Homer."

    It's a cartoon, but it really happened.

    the calliper is there, it's just not mounted to the fork. The bike decides when it wants to slow down and simply throws the calliper into the spokes. Saves a bunch of rotational weight too as you don't need a disk

    Stickers are not aerodynamic so no they wouldn't be. Also they could counteract the super duper special secret damper settings that allow it to pedal well.
