Seat is more comfortable looking than the asshatchets of today.


Plus it's a fixed gear.

But the gauges don't work (lame) and the tassles are gay (no ****).

I dunno, the "New Triker" on that page has some potential, despite not having the classic big wheel look.

I dunno, I'd want hard, low friction surfaces on the wheels so I could do spins.

I was too old for Big Wheels as a kid.

I'm gonna build myself one. I was way too young for those things, they were illegal here by the time I was born.
