Over the years, we’ve been subject to quite a few freaky bikes. With the advent of full suspension, mountain bikes in particular have been the canvas of scientists around the globe. One would think that as suspension and geometries normalize, the flow of ‘creative’ bikes would stop. But one constant with the bike industry is it will always attract the most innovative minds and the craziest scientists.
