'As an added plus, the magnetic suspension field cushions your ride.'
I don't belive it seems more like a joke. The last one does look real though.
Punctuality is the thief of time.
Yes, but you can only get them from the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy. Take a close look that the name of the publishing company.
That's the craziest thing I ever saw. This week, anyway.
Oh...what happened to the S-works perpetual motion drivetran? 'No more tedious pedaling uphills..' I geuss they pushed that back to the '07 line-up.

I think it's carbon fibre. Wait...carbon fibre IS plastic.Originally Posted by Elvish Legion
Concept Bikes, just like the concept cars at the car shows.
Wonder what RetroGrouch will say about them...
Today, I believe my jurisdiction ends here...
This is the only bike that looks remotely real.
They have real versions of these.
looks like ABS plastic
