New definition for the phrase : "Tree Hugger".
For certain parts stiffer is more important than lighter.

Does anybody notice that the grips are canted forward? Who could possibly ride that way? I do like the male slider fork. That is now the norm for high end motorcycles, but there is probably a fairly large weigh penalty for that especially by the time you get the alternative bar attachment, etc.

The main cool thing about this thing is how the frame is made. The Lexus works utilize a 3-d braider instead of laying up sheets of carbon fiber.

I can see staggering weight weenie implications using this new generation of manufacturing technology...

Well that info was not in the pictures. I realize this was a "design study" but I can think of way more interesting uses that would actually be practical.

Those extensions are designed to impale the guy in front of you.

Sharp, pointy triathlon extensions on a mountain bike... I used to have ideas like that but then I stopped taking drugs...
