Valve caps available on zygote.be

A symbol of 2020 and the global pandemic, now our new gold. These toilet paper valve caps aren't even caps. The toilet rolls fit all types of valves:

We're looking at just over 15.000 Euros, about 13.000 GBP or almost 18.000 USD here. Boggles the mind.

The same bike is $12,500 in the US so the difference is probably due to transport, import taxes, and distributor margin.

Don't know if it fits here but couldn't find a topic about Ku Cycle yet, a new brand for triathletes (you know, those guys and girls that love to ride sleeveless jerseys and low socks ;) ):

There's no Photoshop involved (except for some color and light edjustment maybe).
Website: https://www.ku-cycle.com/

If the geometry is not strange enough, there are also the paint schemes that are not so average:

Those are the guys taking action against Hope/Lotus for stealing their design right

The second paint scheme is the flag of Friesland, a province in the North of the Netherlands.

Among many other issue, should have some serious front wheel flop (lack of caster) with that 90 degree head angle?

That's just a shroud over the whole head tube. The steerer is angled.

I love Moots stuff, but holy hell. If that linkage breaks the rear triangle is going up your a$$. At least they have a stem protector for your...nuts?

That 4-bar linkage style with a huge swingarm was very common in the late 90s, credited to the likes of Paul Turner and the Turner Burner. Also seen on bikes like the Outland VPP. The Moot Malcolm took it to the extreme.

Love the build otherwise… the Marzocchi Bomber fork, XTR M950 cranks, the Time ATACs, the 130mm stem, etc.

What's wrong with that, the stem is slammed, right ? :)

That saddle appears to be suffering from "low T."
