I didn't think I needed one of those, until I saw his masterful marketing of it. Heck, it's way too small for me, but now how could I resist?

These bikes would be cooler if there was a decent supply of 24 inch tires out there.

A gravity-defying bicycle? That must be worth at least..... Hmmm... $200.00?

He's got me hooked. You think he'd take a trade even up on my NOS in the box 1971 Schwinn Paramount? I'll even pay the shipping.

Man, I'm so excited, I hope I can sleep tonight.

Can't wait to see what kind of packing/shipping job he does for $25. I'm guessing he'll pay a bum to carry it in a boxcar to somewhere near the destination.

I think the photo orientation was supposed to hide the fact that the tires are flat.....The fellow is a marketing genius!

Those tires aren't flat they are special ones so you can climb and ride up and down walls. They are super sticky.

I considered buying one of these a few months ago, but I didn't know anyone that needed it and didn't feel like flipping it. It was kinda neat though and half this guy's price so I guess it was a heck of a deal.
