Is the extra clearance so he can crouch down even further for 2 full seconds after landing every....single....move?

But yeah, that's gross, and surely that seat stay area is weaker than a conventional set up?

Not necessarily. The welds of the top tube and from the seat stays are further. Thus, the region is not heated too much. 

But I guess the reason here was to obtain an unconventional design.

I mean the seat stays are usually supported by kind of being a continuation of the top tube, with this there's nothing there to support them, the main force being drops, that'll just push them forward. A curved top tube like a Crescent Ilions should work better in theory.

I think any benefit is probably offset (and more) by the gusset they've welded in there...

My eyes have got used to the paint job now, but I think it misses the mark by some margin in terms of design details. At least he'll be able to run a 32T chainring though :biggrin:

Dunno how I feel about this sort of thing. It’s great Marin are acknowledging Duncan’s Trials background and hopefully we’ll see more high profile content from him. Just seems a shame to do it using bikes you can’t buy but I suppose other street Trials brands many benefit from more awareness of Trials.
