Default Re: Stretch Cruiser

That thing has a very sweet look, but just looking at it I'd be a little concerned about the mechanical stresses on the rear over time... the curve of the top stays is such that instead of exerting compression force on the top stays (like in a normal diamond frame), the weight the bike is carrying is going to want to bend them farther. Know what I mean?
I suppose other people have done this kind of this without problems, though, so I guess it must not be that big a deal.
