One would think that smashing your cojones on the upper top tube would be the least of your worries with such a bike.
This comment wins!

I love this bike though, reminds me of SB's DIY tandems, where he frankenwelded two bikes in the other direction.

That's not a pad, it's a platform, so you can get up to speed, climb up and stand, and then jump over the electrified/razor-wire security fence. How do you get back out? Well you need two of these bikes, first thing you do is throw one over the fence...

I am less than 20min from the place, but no intention to get the bike , you can't do that to a fellow cyclist

If $550 is such a ridiculous price, she should be selling for $550, just for the symmetry and justice of it (plus that's $250 more she can spend on a Fendi handbag).

Or maybe she should just swap with the guy above who is selling his ex-wife's bike.

I believe this is a ruse, but funny none the less.
The chain is not the only part of that bike that needs to be oiled frequently.

It looks like a stock picture, but it's such a horrible quality picture so why use THIS one? 15 seconds on Google gives me this one...

Whoa! If I found that in my yard I'd invoke finder's keepers! (Also I'd wonder, "where did this yard come from? I thought I lived in a condominium!")

Check out the spec sheet: Holy smokes, did anyone else realize that you're supposed to replace your BB every year? And of course, we all are aware of the HUGE difference that a one-tooth larger cassette cog makes for climbing, right?
