 Why didn't colored stanchions really catch on? With the way people use colors on their bikes today, you'd think it would be a hit

 I'd rather ride that unicycle than an electric mountain bike! That mini frame in the Rotor pic is cool though. Need one to hang from the rearveiw mirror!

 What frame is in the third photo? Looks like the front triangle of an Ibis Mojo HD.
  • + 1
 one of the Ibis frames, not sure which one
  • + 1
 It's a Mojo SL-R. The SL doesn't offer the direct mount option and on the HD you can switch the shock mount chips,
  • + 1
 The interesting thing is that we haven't heard a word from Ibis on this. I hope this comes on the HD as well.
  • + 2
 I want to know what unicycle that is
  • + 1
 It's a Qu-Ax, I believe its a german company. I almost got one when I was looking for a new one but they were a bit out of budget and rather hard to get ahold of. In the end I got a Nimbus trials uni Smile wwaaaayyy more fun than any mtb imho
