    What are the chances we see an MTB version of this in the future? 🙂

    I say none! I can’t imagine trying to manual over bumps, jumps or anything rough and technical with bars that are not solidly connected to the front wheel. It would be an accident waiting to happen.

    +1.  And front wheel chain ring cover is “optional”???  Then I assume the bike come stock with a sewing kit so you can stitch up the inevitable gash to the face (especially if you went down/crashed)

    +2 Not on a mountain bike!  But an interesting approach for road riding.  Maybe even gravel stuff like rails to trails paths.  But I gotta wonder about fit.  I only say that because I’m tweaking a fit right now and it’s on my mind.  Not sure about most other riders, but for my beat up body, I can see me ill fitting that bike such I that I’d no longer be able to walk! 🙂

    Agree with rmap01… that chain ring… maybe it should be called a chin ring.  I can see me sneezing and getting a shave at the same time.

    But all in all, I like the thinking outside of the box.

    Reminds me of the all-wheel-drive MTB I tested a few years ago. No chainring in the face, but the moving chain does get awfully close to your legs and crotch.
