    Has anyone ridden it or even seen it? It looks nice , but their homepage has no information about it and I haven't seen discussions about it anywhere. I have sent them about 5 e-mails but I haven't got an answer yet.
    So what do you think of the bike and maybe you know the specs?
    thanks

    looks like a cross between the old ES4 and the raceline rhino...

    and despite the fact that the picture is squished horizontally, it still looks short.

    Yeah seems weird, it has a non UCI style frame with a bunch of UCI parts. Whatever, I wonder who makes it, etc. Never head of that company

    well it's still somewhat uci style with the high BB and short chainstays and such. i ussually hate curved tubing on bikes but this one doesn't look to bad for some reason.

    Ok you guys need to break it down for me with what you mean by UCI style frames. Please give examples for the uneducated.

    short chainstays, long wheel base 1060-1085 or even 1100 , 71.5-73 head angle, no seat, magura mounts, very low stand over height, high bb, 0 to positve bb drop. Bikes that are made with uci rules and style in mind. UCI style frames make big uci moves easier but are not necessary for the moves.
    Very cool build for something unheard of. Also it almost looks like that leecougan sticker was photoshopped on.

    i gave you guys a link of their homepage too but looks like you didn't notice it, but here it is:
    www.leecougan.com
    i've got their last years catalogue too and theres the same bike ... I don't think that it's photoshopped in... i don't remember the exact price of the bike (and I can't find the catalogue) but i think it was about 2700 $, so it's way too expensive... it's definitely better to take a xtp or smth.

    Would you say it's easier to pull moves on UCI style frames than say Brisa style frames? What would you classify the new Echo and Zoo geometries as?

    what sort of moves dude? different strokes for different...strokes...

    UCI frames tend to be better at taps, hooks etc. Moves where bash and pedal aren't used.

    to add to what tomac said, front-rear moves (wheel swaps), touch ups, side hops from rear wheel, wedges, and anyother move where the front wheel has a major role.
