Is there any pros/cons to having a wishbone seat stay?
I have only seen it on the Subrosa Wildchild frame.

Might make the rear end slightly stiffer. Also personal preference as well. I know I dig wishbones on the CS's not so much on the SS.

Barcode is the first frame that comes to mind for me for a wishbone SS. But I’m also old 😂

Sometimes they name it a "pierced top tube" as well. Nyquist's Backtrails had it. Even the 20th Anniversary did it.

Standard had/has it, and tons of other brands. Macniel did it too.

Only if it pierces the top tube (which is most of them).

Tons of bikes used to have these...the pierced top tube is stiffer and stronger
