    *drool*

    I second the question regarding the "tape" around the wheels :P

    I also wonder: are the rims painted to llook like wood?

    Nitpickery: grips could match the saddle better ;)

    Front/rear brake: where do they go?

    This may be a very silly question...

    Which side do you have your front/rear brake on? (or well, the lever for the brake on the handlebar... the brakes themselves are somewhat obvious :lol:)

    Yeah, it's fixed :P It looks well made, yes, but there's probably a reason it hasn't caught on.... although effectively it's the same as back-pedaling I guess.
