Because you wouldnt just add lead weights if that was the aim

I did a quick calculation. With a couple of roughly estimated weights for the bike and the added mass, it lowers the centre of mass for the combined bike & rider system by slightly over 1 mm. The effect is marginally greater than changing the thickness of the rider's socks.

You would need a big tube for the latter!

I heard the frame was originally built for Michael Barrymore, as he wanted a bike where he could choose to run a top, middle, or bottom bracket.

I mean, they started a crowdfunding campaign to rent a car to attend a bike show... And then had some giant booths at some of the shows.

Wow. I did not know they did that. Unbelievable.
