Don't laugh. I've seen a few of them being ridden around here lately.

There is (was) a regular trade in those Chinese bikes into Pakistan. The riders would cycle into China, buy a bike, tie it to theirs side-by-side using string and broomhandles, and ride back into Pakistan to sell at a significant profit.
There is a small range of hills between 2 countries, I think they are called the Himalayas.

For sporting riders, the loop sprung "Ball breaker" saddle is also available.
Yeah! I've been looking for one of those! A bike like that might be a cool thing to have around but I doubt that I would ride it very much. I would even venture to say that I would ride an X-mart bike every day before that thing. It's probably best hanging from the ceiling in the local TGI Friday's or other such "casual atmosphere themed" restaurants.

Oh my!!! Does this mean I've become a bike snob!
