Yeah, that spencer is legit. The sizing is a little weird on the small ones, in that the geometry on the XS is a little closer to what most companies just call a small, and the small seems a little closer to a medium, but those are actually minor quibbles, especially when the rest of the spencer seems pretty well thought out.

Aside from marketing, I don't know why anyone would pick this over an Endpoint.

I'll just add that I know like five people who want low trail bikes, and I've sent them all to the Endpoint website, and I bet two or three or them will end up with the Crust cuz Instagram.

Pretty damn slack STs

I'd give one a whirl just to see

If someone on here did it, I'd probably like it. Since it was done by someone I don't know, they're a fucking idiot.

Makes me think back to my brothers tramp bike while he was way into bmx when we were kids. It was a frame fork and handlebars with mounds of old t shirt and duct tape wrapped around the dropouts BB and bar ends. We’d put it on the trampoline and do 360s and tailwhips. My brother was doing spencer flips with that thing when finally one of his JA friends put a hole in the tramp. That shit was a total blast

That could be the coolest spencer in the world and exactly what I'm looking for (it's not though) and I wouldn't give it the time of day because of the name.

Ti handlebars are basically the worst possible use of titanium. Maybe worse than forks, but probably just tied.

Imagine if you bought that thing, started riding your spencer more, and realized you needed a longer/shorter stem.

No. You have Rivbike, Soma, and an assortment of terrible "women's bikes" from bigger brands that are all the same terrible slack hybrid shits. Thee v-o mixte from a decade ago was the best and they sold dozens, I'm sure.

worse, since for some reason they picked this frame to start using pencil seatstays

most SOMA disc models still use fat double-taper seatstays that actually exist to resist canti post twist

and this one also uses the cursed fork crown! http://www.cycle-frames.com/bicycle-frame-tubing/NOVA-CYCLE-X-FORK-CROWN-old-school-70mm-width-for-28.6mm-steerer.html
