    Looks like it'd be tough to ride a fixed gear in those shoes.

    it is sad that it has a black saddle and chain, a nice Brooks saddle would go well (so long as someone doesnt have a wrench and try to steal it)

    A simple-minded fool looking for company.
    Failure #1: front brake. A lot of cops hang out at the coffee shop? What a wuss.
    Failure #2: shifter and cable bosses left on the frame. No commitment.

    The mouth-breathers and knuckle-draggers may be distractd by the pretty colors, but you just haven't earned it yet, baby (-and I don't even like upright road bikes).

    Beautiful bike. Pretty pics. The last pic. Why is she wearing gloves and smiling at the same time. Sort of look like latex gloves?

    it's like one of those pictures that you have to stare at, and suddenly a bike appears.
    I am looking for a 52cm-ish lugged mixte or ladies frame. Pm if you got one.

    Any more of a wuss than the crybabies who ride without brakes and then go crying to other cyclists every time they get a ticket?

    Some people have class. Other people destroy classy bikes for the sake of a momentary fashion blip. Go figure.

    Lemon lime. I'm not sure why some think it's "sad." Though I suspect it's because the only way they can make themselves feel good is by putting others down. That and because they're fussy little tits.

    That cartoon chick is way out of proportion. She is way too tall above the waist.

    People get annoyed at people who don't like biking... then get annoyed by people who LOVE biking, but don't love it in the same way as they do.

    Get over yourself. Seriously. It was an off-the-cuff comment. Atleast he didn't buy a $5,000 Madone to "get looks" at S-bucks... he just rides what he likes, and a perk is others admire it. I don't know why some bikers feel the need to disparage other bikers.
