yeah I just saw that too.... totally awesome use of a bunkbed frame!

I wouldn't trust hopping a curb with that rear chain-stay design though..

I'm going to nominate it for best fixed gear 2005. Is it me or is anyone else sick and tired of seeing Surly bikes on that site.

Yeah. Those and the chrome plated Bianchi Pistas.


I'd vote for the bunkbed bike, at least it's got character!

I loved sharing this with my fellow bike-o-philes. I love making "something" out of "nothing" and admire others who do. There's a lot of that at BFs! The engineering of this bunkbed bike includes built-in ladders. So cool! Thanks for sharing, wearyourtruth.

The only thing that gets to me with that site is, people always seems to say the same things like: I absolutely love your site. Such and such bike was the inspiration for this bike. Sugino 75. Velocity wheels. Blah Blah. Cinelli stem or 3ttt blah blah. and they always seems to be so defensive and ashamed when they say that they will pay the guy for running the website. I bet it takes about $50-$100/month to run that site a month and I be the guy is pullin in way more. I think I read somewhere that he just bought a new laptop(i.e. FixGearForum money) Well more power to that guy. I guess I'm envyous.

yeah that bunk bed bike is awesome, it's a sweet ride too. Once you get over being scared of falling. I think everyone should have one.
