    I don't know if anyone has pointed this out before but this seemed to be a strange coincidence in frame design:

    Click the pics to visit the respective sites from which the pics were sourced.

    Also, if I'm not mistaken, wasn't there an Onza that looked a lot like these?

    ahahah the bars on the base sweep backwards. and i think a few onzas have that slopey downtube like the zoo lynx but i dont know about the whole seat thing

    Hahahaha, too true!

    Onza sold the frame originally, yeah, and then others 'nicked' it from the Taiwanese catalogue :)

    They don't really seem all that similar actually.

    That Base bike has to be the ugliest mod out there, they took the previously ugliest mod, the Onza, and made it even uglier. Even an entry level bike has to at least look kind of good.

    I think the reflectors are a nice touch though. I wonder if they are the Carbonique drilled out graphite versions...

    Well luckily the GT isn't inproduction just his personal bike. Did you check out the rest of that page? APPARRENTLY there is a BIKE TRIALS MUSEUM in Itori Japan. SWEET I gotta go to japan, more for the ladies cuz I get down like that. O and the BASE looks more like a brisa than anything else.

    Hmm, no Mod style bash guard. UCI maybe?
    Also what is missing is the card you stick in the spokes so it makes that kool motor bike grrraaarrrr.
