New Beam Bike - Pearson, not Softride
Quote | Reply
I think the guy who designed the new Softride has gotten tired of delays and decided to release it himself!

It's quite a tasty beast. Wonder what it costs?

I'd be curious to see how it tests in the windtunnel. Would be very suprised if it doesn't test faster than any double diamond frame on the market.

Ya know what, I think softrides are fugly, that that thing just looks cool to me for some reason. Looks fast at the very least.

It looks like getting the fit dialed in could be tough! No stack/reach adjustment up front and no seat height adjustment.
You'll need it custom built.

I'm prepared to be their sponsored rider to help work out the bugs.

Perhaps--but you reach a point where all that you're doing is shifting mass around; I wouldn't be surprised, either, if it *doesn't* test faster than some of today's best DD frames.

Wind tunnel or not it's refreshing.

Looks like the seat post(? if you can call it a seatpost) is drilled and allows for height adjustment.

I've never been a fan of the looks of beam bikes before, but that one is waaaay cool.

I looked more closely and you're right.

The downside would be that if you want to have your seat at any height lower than maximum, that you'd have seatpost sticking down below the beam. I'd then be tempted to cut it which isn't unreasonable.
