Well, I chanced upon this site today. It was a quiet day, and I'd done all that was expected of me. Honest!
And, instead of thinking 'that's a bit silly' I found myself thinking - 'Cool. Blue or Seafoam?'
I'm not sure it's a problem yet, but maybe I've passed some kind of a line

Hah! I'd bet the fixie riders would DIE if they saw you do a track stand on that thing.
I'd get the black one just for that old timey look. Then I'd take it to a pinstriper for even MORE old fashioned pizazz.
Sure would make calculating your drive's gear-inch a breeze.

From what I have heard- start learning the Soprano parts in your local choir as sudden dismounts can have a detrimental affect on your voice range.
But do like the choice of colours you have chosen.

It's not an affliction, it's how God made you. You need to learn to embrace who you are.

It's fuchsia, dammit, fuchsia! Named for Fuchs!!
Can I get one of them things with a freehub?

The caring, therapeutic retreat you seek is in your credit card. Your banker truly cares and is willing to send you monthly statements reminding you of just how much he cares. Exactly how much, to the penny. bk

Clearly, the red one will be the fastest! Is it clipless? Do they have matching kit, cages, and bottles?

Please note the phrase "installed rear brake will make schedualed dismounts easier" and think about all of the implications.
Actually, high wheels are cool. We have a small nest of them here in CT and the folks involved like to ride in various summer parades while wearing period costume. I have had some contact with them as I have had some meger success in truing the wheels. Most LBS take a look and say....how am I supposed to do that, its too big for my truing stand. These modern remakes are relatively easy to work on, for example, the truing I manage by hanging the bike from my workstand and using the fork to true the wheel in place. The spoke nipples are a bit larger than standar however so be prepared to need a different wrench.

Do they fit in the bike racks on the bus?

Holy cow. It comes in pink. Will go famously with my all pink kit. The WVa drivers will have no reason to run me down now!

I used to ride one we had at a bike shop where I worked in the 70's; great fun and not too difficult to ride, really.
Okay, I was in my 20's then and darn near 60 now, so it could be a tad more difficult now. I would never spend that much money on one, however. As I remember, the one at the shop was the "Rideable Replica" brand. Wonder whatever happened to it.

If it was me I'd get the brown one to better hide the poopie stains from fear of falling!!!!! :p

I was so excited when I saw that they had one in my size (48--yes!!!!!), until I realised that the 48 meant 48 inches was the size of the front wheel.
Electric Blue please, my b'day is the end of the month, wonder what the delivery time is?
I also like "Rear brake on bike means easier scheduled dismount"
It's the unscheduled dismounts that are the killers.
