OK Lug lickers and carbon fiber hot shots might both find something to like in:
Seven Cycles 622-SLX

The lugs are titanium and the tubes are CF.

I do like geared bikes good enough, but balloon tire bikes take my mind back

Sam Whittingham. He was the world's fastest self-propelled human until some dutch kid beat his record:

He's still got the record for most miles ridden in an hour, 56.373miles. To me that's even more impressive.

That's a pretty frame there.

More of his eye candy here: http://timetogetnaked.com/
More about him: http://sports.espn.go.com/espnmag/story?id=3405498 (FWIW: I was at the incident described in the beginning of the article. I heard the tire pop.)
Sam lives up to his company's name: http://sports.espn.go.com/espnmag/ga...395474&index=9 (not 100% SFW)
