    They should resize it, I'd consider putting it on my road bike.

    "who'd have thought that one day it would be more alternative to ride around on a 27 speed titanium frame with carbon fiber whateverthef*ck? these really look best on your h2"

    i don't know if i like their target audience. i could see a lot those people who like to drive close to us, like to 'tap' us or who love yelling crap at us, wanting to pick one up.

    that's really funny...but would their "target audience" know what a fixie was? I like the idea of a "one less bike" sticker on a car.

    The other day I thought of putting one of those "I'm Changing the Climate--Ask Me How!" stickers on my cargo trailer.

    yeah it's probably meant as some sort of sarcastic, i know what a fixie is, hip sticker thingy meant for the hip people. which i'm not. or at least i was reminded of yesterday when i was at a show and all these kids had hair going everywhere and 20 tons of makeup on and looked pretty disgruntled, drinking their piss beers and acting like they really liked the music even though one act really sucked.

    end rant.

    as a person soon to be with child, i think that is pretty excellent. Most kids end up pushing themselves around in a plastic "car" powered by walking; as the two sun-bleached "cars" moldering in my downstairs neighbor's backyard demonstrate.

    this is not only NOT A CAR but also wooden (not plastic), and pretty. Wonder if you can find them used...I was hoping to find something like this, to fill the years until the tot can handle her own bike.

    two hundred eighty bongo congos for your two year old to scoot around? Maybe I'd spend $280 for an IRO frameset if the tike were 12 or 20 years old...

    a bit pricey I'd say... maybe one could appreciate it as sculpture for that kinda of money.

    bet it would neat with the light brown Storika saddle on it...

    awe... to customize it for the ankle biter... yeah....

    damn, they are expensive...i'm hoping the afflu-parents in our area will buy them up, and then put 'em on craigslist when they are out grown.

    i like the spoked version. And the straight bars--tuff! I guess if you got two, you could rebuild it into some kinda trailer after the kids get too big.

    You could even do it with some style, the body old wooden waterski, the handle bars, some old wooden crutches, the seat/fender, a little more fenegling with wood and the wheels, if you have old wide waterskis and can fashion two wheels to match the body...ok maybe we are trying too hard
