Looks interesting for sure. Has a modern take on the old softride kind of feel, but much cooler looking. I'd love to hear a ride report when you get around to it

I test rode one this past Summer in Mont Tremblant during Ironman. Best way I can describe is that it feels like a normal bike, but as though you were using a wider rear tire than normal. The beam doesn't move, but the no seat tube design definitely smooths the ride.

There is a tririg omega brake under the cover on front of the fork. But the super wide area is an aerodynamic feature, meant to smooth airflow in that area over the wheel.

Looks fast standing still! Well done on the spec. Especially like the chain ring on this build.
