Actually Alex I did some research on that system and it looks like Trek will be angry as they stole the concept from them.
Its Treks 2010 DH design called the SHREK fugly 101

That must be a joke surely, I've read a few threads on framebuilding with contributions from the likes of frank the welder, and from what little I've picked up I'd think that frame would flex like a plastic bag Eye-wink try and pedal and your foot might just end up on the other side of the front wheel...

For an example of a great looking original frame build that turned out to have this terminal flaw have a look at this thread in observed trials:, it is 13 pages long but it's like a good book, you get hooked and there's a punchline at the end, and then there's a sequel too! Good for a rainy day.

Surely a joke...must have been conjured up after a long weekend of Acid or something mind altering.
