That top tube height reminds me of old achool freestyle bikes, like the CW Shaker.

looks good, nice to see new completes coming out. The frame design has similar proportions to the taller frames like the Matthias frame I'm currently riding.

Should we consider this a flatland bike? I mean that stem, offset fork, high standover... I don't like these trends so much. I mean some years ago we had 6" standover which may make the frame to flexy, and now we have 8" again which is not necessary and just not suitable for flatland. It is just coming from the current street frame designs. The same with stem length. Why sould I ride a 50 mm stem for flatland where you have the bars reverese so often? The only reason would be that your bike looks more like a street bike. Or you do very special tricks.

As an allround bike this really makes sense! I think you can try out every discipline of freestyle with such a bike.

Looks like a  street bike. Not a fan of high standover and long stem but it's ultimately personal preference...

They do have aftermarket stems in 45 and 35mm. This bike is more for a overall use, there's not much info provided by NOUS.
The frame design does fall inline with there pro frames. That street look is what more and more riders are going towards.

Lots of low end completes use this type of BB/cranks. It's cheaper than a sealed BB.
