I think at the time 15mm was more widely used. by 03+ industry changed but redesigning the rear link/dropout just didn't happen (?)

Does benders karpiel get a chance or do people class this as ugliest dh bike of all time. Personally I think it looks rad

I think the Karpiel bikes were definitely some of the baddest bikes around. And still are! No BS carbon fiber plastic crap, just metal and broken bones. I personally place them in the same category as Nicolai. I can only dream of owning either one.

Would not put Nicolai and Karpiel in the same building, let alone the same category. Definitely up there with the ugliest/most specifically designed bikes I can think of.

This is nice for a Karpiel, not quite old school anymore though...

To celebrate their 60 anniversary yes that itsn t a typo - Scott started in 1958 they decided to dig out some of their DH history - including this race bike from the late 90s. While their new DH prototype unvelied at Losinj may look good who doesn t secretly hope they went back to producing this kind of twin-shock twin-seatposted lunacy
Sexy bike, but not with those rotors and that chainguide...
