Weird Frame Designs

Corratec track bike from the 90's. A couple Swiss guys won world championships on these in 94. I'm guessing that triple triangle is hella heavy and hella stiff.

Wild 3rensho. No seat tube/triple triangle. I'm guessing its pretty lightweight without the seat tube. Not to mention pretty aero.

Another wild 3rensho, this one with a weird ass bent seat tube. Looks like it takes a 24" front.

Yamaguchi Assymetric Track. I have no idea what is going on with this frame at all. No seat tube, low triple triangle and a weird bent tube that goes from the top tube to the non drive side chainstay. Love those russian wooden disc wheels.

Those are not wooden disc wheels, they are Fluidisks made out of kevlar! I have no idea why they have that wood look though.
