Dunno, I rather liked this one. Especially the gas-trap saddle. That would make a fine errand bike for my neighborhood.

Oh my god, that's truly genius. Can you imagine switching the brake and shifter cables on a bike with STI shifters? That would be hilarious!!!

There is a guy who rides locally using bar-ends on bar-ends on bar-ends. The total stack reaches to chest height. He seems to like it.
