    Presented without comment: ebay link






    Ok, maybe a little comment. That geometry looks hella weird to me.

    brake lever upgrade is nice, probably a decent bike, but it's ugly as hell

    Hence the thread title being in quotes.

    sportymama isn't associated with BD, is it?

    It's junk. Look at that stupid geometry! If you look at the other pics on the eBay listing, the rear dropouts (sorry...track ends) look like they're made from tin cans glued to the chain/seat stays. Also, the crankset looks like something found on a bike from Walmart. The only thing maiking this bike at all worthwhile is the Formula hubs - and that's not enough.

    Track ends look pretty standard to me. Geometry does look a little strange, but BD is notorious for taking horrible pictures at weird angles. Am I the only one that thinks BD bikes look 100x better in person or even personal rider pictures?

    And this is wrong because? When will people get over the fact that every fixed gear doesn't have to have a track geometry or look aggresive?

    These are the exact same track ends on the Scrambler, Kilo, Windsor...
