Is this the world's weirdest mountain bike bodge?
Best worst thing ever!
No, your eyes aren't deceiving you, that really is a mountain bike with three forks.
This bike bodge was spotted on a Serbian classified site and is currently selling for €150. However it is for "serious buyers and lovers of handicrafts" only.
But what is it? Well as far as we can tell it's a Balance full suspension bike with three forks bolted onto the front. You may think this makes it a long-travel monster, like the old Karpiel Armageddons, but looking at the forks you'd be lucky to get 50mm out of all of them combined.
With v-brakes, 26 inch wheels and narrow handlebars it's definitely one for the retro fans out there. We're not sure how it would ride, but the BB height leaves us pretty confident that pedal strikes wouldn't be a problem.
Here's what the advert (roughly) says:
"Handmade with three forks, an incredibly comfortable ride, a bike made to go through various terrains without any problems, invested a lot of effort, time and money ..
Mechanically 100% correct when there is a will and material resources that is, about the middle of aesthetics.
The price is 150 €, with no stupid questions that let the price right to that money out when it is sold in parts
Serious buyers and lovers of handicrafts ship inbox snapshot of how it works …"
Cheers to Bikesy for pointing this one out.
