    And what an amazing turd it is. I feel like my process needs some new wheels now...I hope kona rolls a 111 esque process back into the line up next year. A 123 would be spot on with a minimum of a 190mm shock length...

    Thanks! FWIW, Nextie is blowing out hoops on eBay right now.

    Funny, I thought the same thing about the "123" moniker. Easy peasy marketing on that one.....

    Perfect timing. The Beady Little Eye at the bottom looks great. Clean, simple, and raw.

    It is a beautiful frame. As a destroyer of alloy frames, I'm intrigued by the idea of a steel suspension bike. With a suspension pivot located concentrically about the bottom brake (like those late '90s GT frames), this is a bit of an odd throw-back. I wonder how it pedals?

    but it would have to be concentric with the BB in order to keep SS chain tension. I wonder how it brakes?

    Edit...but yeah, anti-squat, brake jack and pedal bob are all still concerns with any suspension design. All the 4-bar designs (including Specialized, VPP, Maestro and DW) address this with platform shocks and specific tuning. So I'm curious about how a bb concentric frame works for all that.

    She may be simple, but comes with a lot of baggage.

    You're probably correct, given how few have been made with this concept.

    I know, wrong bike. But it's definitely bike porn. It's been six months since I got hit and almost killed on it.

    TheX, I think that bike would kill me, but I would be having so much fun I wouldn't realize it until St.Peter taps me on the shoulder.

    Doing 186 at COTA certain made it worthwhile.

    I've got a Lenz Milk Money 4.0. It pedals amazingly well. I'm guessing that's due to shock tuning because it's not a real plush 4" of travel. It's firm, but even throughout it's full travel. Braking? Braking is for pussies.

    I would love to take one of those for a spin, let alone own one. If they come out with a 130-140mm 29 version, I'll seriously think about one.
