I've been seeing one of their bikes pop up around random instagram photos at trails but I haven't figured out what bike it was until now. Definitely a cool idea for a trail bike, I wouldn't switch over though.

To me a 22 inch BMX makes more sense than a MTB DJ bike disguised as a BMX...

It doesn't matter where a train goes. It's decidin' to get on that does.

Pretty much, yeah. Its cool someone is trying something new and good for the sport, but it's nothing crazy and ground breaking yet.

FBM makes the frames which is awesome, might actually consider getting one if it not extremely expensive

Curious how the geometry compares to the Liquid Feedback. The headtube angle on this thing is WAY too mellow, IMO. Considering their frames are all on sale, I'm guessing their sales have been slow.

FWIW, the Liquid is a 24 inch trail blasting machine. This common ground thing looks like a slug.

The bb seems too low too. Especially when jump bikes are starting to raise theirs to make it more nimble

FBM makes their frames and S/M makes their forks and bars so there is no question about the quality of the parts.

It looks like someone BMX'd a 29er and shrunk it down.

It'd be neat to try one, and I could see some of the older crowd Myself and up) looking into larger wheeled bikes as time goes on. I've even considered bumping to a 22 or 24.

well, color me wrong.

The video in the tech section on their site is good.

Still, not a frame I would ever consider buying.
