    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

    You were around for the death of Bauhaus?

    Anyhow, from a design perspective, I don't think they took the idea far enough. And I particularly agree with whoever stated that it invokes department store retail clothing racks. In terms of execution, it looks a little shoddy to be an actual bike (as opposed to art).

    There is this annoying supposition in our culture that since someone is an "artist" and what they do, they call "art," that is is therefore good.

    Or that someone deserves the title "artist" for simply naming their works "art"

    I really think it would be naive to get into a discussion of what is and isn't art here on BF.

    Nah, just some kid who thinks he/she knows about the band.
    Mis- and/or under-informed. Oh, well, ignorance abounds.
    For the curious.

    Lol at Bauhaus. Peter Murphy is playing here tonight.
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    Right but contextually Bauhaus the band has zero to do with this topic. Not that the other meaning is entirely relevant either. But it's obvious that was the intent.
