    Kunstrad bikes

    I'm not having any luck finding info about these bikes that is in English, and my German is pretty rusty. Does anyone have links or info?

    What gearing are they running? 1:1?

    What kind of fork are they running? Is that custom or just straight?
    ... I'm the center of attention in the walls inside my head ...

    A quick search turned up a lot of links, but not much textual information on the bikes themselves. Looks like they're running 1:1 on custom-made bikes. Here's two collections of links to pages maintained by local clubs and individual riders:
    http://freenet-homepage.de/kunstrad/links.htm
    http://www.cycleballer.com/1232.0.html

    And two online shops with galleries - they both seem to be popular manufacturers:
    http://www.starbicycle.com/fotos.htm
    http://www.otoupalik-bikes.cz/index_de.htm

    "Artistic Bicycles" are Kunstrad bikes, "Cycleball" or "Radball" frames look like this:




    Check out these videos if that frame has you muttering under your breath:

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! You busted me up. Probably because I love monkeys. But really, who doesn't love monkeys?

    ditto.
    I love monkeys too.
    Last night ChimChim jerked me off with his feet.
    Only a monkey can show you that kind of love.
