 It's a 29 front wheel. And why pointless? I'm no huge fan of the solution (Trek's done it too, check out their so called "69'ers"). However, the "roll over obstacle" ability of a 29"er combined with the nimbleness of a 26" (by nimbleness I am refering to the lesser "rotational inertia" or whatever it's called in English, compared to that of a 29"). It looks abit wierd, but from what I've heard, they're really good. Obviously a bike for those who like to stand out. Can you spot the photographer? Nice.

 Why did you have to ask that question? No I can't. None of the guys in the right seem to be taking any pictures at all. So where is he then if I may ask?

 You mean like 29''? It looks like it, but it would be pointless. Maybe this has something to do with some optical effect or something like that. The frame is beautiful though, but I am not sure whether I'd like it with that fork (or maybe I would, I don't know).

 Yes, there is a blog article that goes with the photo that says, " The front end is a 29" wheel, while the rear is a standard 26" wheel."

 Ah right. I can see it now. So what's the purpose then?

 Crazy that this singlespeed is 17.2 lbs, and Cannondale's top end geared hardtail with suspension is 16 lbs stock.
