    The swankest bike in the world

    Is the Koga Aeroblade.

    I am skeptical of it's durability, but that **** probably flies!

    Edit: Sorry, I couldn't resist the pun. It actually won't be flying anywhere as it weighs about 28 lbs.

    The frame probably doesn't weigh too much. It's the crazy wheels, mudguards, chainguard, disc brakes, and rohloff hub that is adding the extra weight.

    The spokes look somewhat like the ribs of the wheels on the racecar "inspiring" it. The whole scheme is just marketing to go with the 187 MPH racecar. The rear fender would be worthless. Remember folks the car (and bike) are meant for Europe.

    I noticed that there's no price in USD. It's so awesome they don't even sell it to Americans.

    i say again, 28lbs.

    keep your rohloff, keep your brooks, keep your ti frame and carbon doodads.

    if you have $10k + to drop on a bike you're a fool if you buy that

    this will piss all over it for a fraction of the price

    Lol looks like it belongs in sky captain and the world of tomorow. In other words looks like some one in the 50s idea of the bikes youd see in 2k haha.


    Id not ride it even if it was like 16 pound range those wheel look dangerous. Ive heard stories of bladded spokes in some cases causeing the bike to be harder to control. I can only imagine what the effect of those would be. Im thinkign similar to a disk wheel on the front of a bike very rudder like effect.

    If i buy a unuseal bike with unuseal construction and design it would be a calfee bamboo. Much nicer bike imo with more visual intrest as well.
