Turning to the dark side
it might save you money but probably won't save your front teeth

Gotta love that aero brake mount - not sure how it would benefit a bike such as this but hey, each to their own!
not all carbon is the same.

Don't often see a bike on Gumtree with both wheels. Although I'm sure there's a Perfectly Reasonable Explanation for the ones that have the front wheel missing

I see this so many times, commuting... forks back to front, genius! I even stopped one lady to explain, wish I hadn't!

Do those forks make Endos easier to pull off?

Yep, done the same to a father and son once as the kid's bike looked like a crash waiting to happen. The father gave me a mouthful of abuse for being nosey. I am guessing he built it up for his son and 'knew what he was doing!'

We see kids turning up for Bikeability training with bikes built like this all the time.

yeah we do indeed...the usual "but I got it brand new from asda, tesco, jjb, halford etc etc...and I/They built it up properly, you dont have an f-ing clue" come along with it when we say, erm, this bike is going to cause your child to get injured.
