Looks like it belongs at Area 51. Or in a funeral procession. Or possibly it was designed by a bored, disaffected West German Expressionist and minimalist who used to appear on SNL, who was named Dieter Sprocket. This post has become tiresome.

Interesting bike; boring landscape. Spend that money to move someplace interesting.

Great comments so far.

There are so many ways that this discussion might go off the rails. Still if the bike can't tweet, it ain't presidential.

I think that, the next time an unfortunate Tour de France rider dies, his whole team could ride a squad of these the next day. It would be a perfect tribute to a fallen rider, and the press would be all over it.
