    After much soul searching, I finally decided on my next choice of bicycle :)

    Well, what do you think?

    It fits me to a tee, huh?

    If I didnt have balls between my legs, I would buy it.

    unless it has a mens frame style, then I would buy it.

    I was warped as a child. My dad introduced me to 2001 A Space Oddessey and The Beatles Yellow Submarine. What can I say?

    Cool looking bike! I love those chrome fenders. But not for $1500.

    I like it, but not for that price.

    +1 on the front fender.

    BTW, for clarification purposes, my post was a humorous attempt at satire.

    Do I like the Beatles and the Yellow Submarine? Yes

    Do I like older style vintage bicycles? Yes

    Do I like the color yellow? Not my favorite but it will do. Actually yellow was popular in the 1960's.

    Would I actually ride a bike like the one pictured? No. And certainly not pay $1500.00 thank you very much

    It was posted because of it's uniqueness and the fact that you could attach any object to the Beatles and market it.

    Thanks for reading.

    I thought the fender was useless for keeping your feet and drive train gunk-free.

    At least with the mismounted fender you're have a black one on front.

    I guess the front drops also have an eyelet for a rack. You could carry your 45's and your Nehru jacket in the basket.

    My understanding is that $3500 is not uncommon for those. A very rare bike and highly collectable in some circles.

    Not for the "Yellow Submarine" model, it isn't! This was a factory install, putting it on backwards intentionally. This was in line with the surrealism of the Beatles Movie and album!

    I'm not much into naming my PCs HAL

    Desktop: Ripper Mk9 (Ripper was the name of my first computer, a CAD workstation I built back in 1996...it's specs were pretty obscene at the time, AMD NexGen 133, 850mb hard drive, 48mb ram, 2mb hardware mpeg accelerated and fully HW autocad compliant VLbus videocard, 14.4 modem, 100mbps nic, and a 17" semi-flat CRT. That machine was an absolute monster...most people called BS when I told them what I had....keep in mind 2MB videocards were unheard of at the time...256kb cards were the norm.

    Now it's an athlon 64 3500, 2gb ram, 1tb hard drive space, 256mb geforce 7800gt...not quite the monster anymore, but I now have stuff to pay for like rent....I was a highschooler when the first Ripper was built....this is the 9th build of the machine...I tend to rebuild it every year, with exception of 2000, when I was too poor, and only upgraded the CPU.

    For a short time I called it Silverstone, in part due to it being a giant aluminum full-tower, deeper than a refrigerator, as tall as it is deep, and about 9" wide...but the name wore off and jjust felt lame....back to the ripper name.

    Laptop....ThomsonFox. Uncreative name...I have bike part stickers all over it, and one os Thomson, and the other Fox. I also have crank bros, and Sette. I used to have a ritchey shield sticker, but it peeled off
