AWESOME Marino!

If I had one made, I'd want it to turn out looking just like that.

That Lambert Frame is immaculate. agreed on the mullet sentiment(not my thing, despite some preferring the ride characteristics), would love to see a high end spec on it.

Among you guys who do not like mullets, have you tried some, and if so, what's to dislike? I haven't tried one yet but am curious / interested. Especially when I see this kind of beautiful build.

I don't get how it could NOT work (considering a frame and forks that are designed for it, providing good geometry etc).

Is the Lambert a Mullet specific design?

I think the best application would be 4x/dual slalom racing, on trail reducing the rear wheel rollover is not a characteristic I like. The additional BB drop and slackening of the HA are also things that I am not looking to further accentuate by having to make accommodations - shorter crank arms, etc.

If I lived in a much more vertically oriented area(not Minnesota), where I had thousands of feet of elevation I'd take a look again. But wouldn't want to suffer for the potential gain on the descent by struggling on the ascent...

I believe it has been designed as a mullet frame
