Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Here's the correct link for Supersized Cycled.

http://www.supersizedcycles.com/

Somehow or other, you got a redirected link to a different site.

Supersized Cycles is run by an Athena named Joan Denizot.

This bike is pretty nice (rated to 550 lbs) but, my god, it's $1750!!! It seems like, with a little help from the gang around here, one could build up a decent Surly and save some cash.

I realize that this is probably a preproduction picture but the ad copy states 8 speed internal gearing. That's the best imitation of a derailler and casette I've ever seen. I can kind of understand why it's so darned expensive. Waterford frames are not cheap!

I think they need to overall do a better job with their descriptions. With just a quick glance I found another model that stated an easy, step through frame but the picture clearly showed a standard top tube.
