    Let me guess -with that much carbon fibre I think 40k minimum...

    Still an awesome bike though.

      It will be interesting seeing its life span

          But if you could walk after it snapped how cool would you be to pick up the thing over your shoulder and walk away.

            I dont think it would break that easily - esp if its thick carbon fibre. Having done a heap of research and project work on carbon fibre - if they made is a layer or two thicker than most aftermarket aesthetic bits the strength would be getting extremely high - it is typically stronger than the equivalent thickness of aluminium etc. It also has a surprising amount of flexibility meaning that unlike aluminium it can flex to absorb some impact, rather than being rigid and cracking straight away.

              Errrr it's made by unit, Fuck that's gay.

              Now who will focus on merchandise targeted at 90% of Australians that have never even touched a bike ?

              Won't somebody think of the flat brim hat sales ? Shops in rockingham will go broke instantly.

                  Jesus, where does the petrol go?
                  It didn't look that far on the map...

                    looks like more an excerise in "look what we can do" than actually making a competative bike. It maybe super light but you'd think FMX riders need that weight there as some resistance when they do they tricks.

                    I was also under the impression that carbon fibre had a direction as in there was one way that it would be super strong but on other angles can fracture alot easier. How would a carbon fibre bike cartwheeling from along the ground after a 20mtr high drop go?

                      Petrol inside the frame, and muffler integrated into the swingarm... Petrol idea has been done before by Buell, but the muffler idea is innovative.

                      It will be interesting to see how the convept progress's.

                        Fail.

                        Does not have mad dawg cut down fenders, local perth riders that have never jumped but have cut fenders will not approve.

                          If you are using Uni-direction mat you lay one layer of mat in one direction and the next layer in a different direction, and so forth...

                          You can use Bi-directional mat, this is the stuff you normal see parts made of, with lines of carbon at 90 degrees to each other...you lay the first mat and lay the next one at 45 degrees to the first and it becomes very strong in all directions...

                          Buell has done the muffler in the swingarm too...

                          Not sure if he marketed any, but he did do a design...

                            If you think of the X and Y directions (2D planar) you would be correct - the Z direction (in and out of that plane - 3D) is still lacking in strength comparitively. Which is why it still retains a degree of flexibility.
