I saw a bike riding a ferrari..

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

This is just wrong...



Arg.. god, the cheap water bottle, the reflector on the front wheel, the mismatched tires (is that an armadillo on the front??), the wheels don't even match!

Look through the rear wheel. Just to the left of the crank.

Lots of ignorance on this thread.


Playboy sticker and red Ferrari equals HOT Playboy centerfold.
Bike strapped to bumper means rider in distress flags down good samaritan.

Hot monkey sex ensues.

/every red-blooded cyclists dream.

Maybe it's the bike they rode in on to steal the Ferrari.

I like the rag between the seatstay and bumper. I'm just speechless - I wouldn't think of strapping a bike with no rack to a crummy car, with the damage it's sure to cause to both car and bike. but a Ferrari?

I almost expect to see that in Orange County, though - home of the "Newport Beach Volkswagen" (a BMW 5-series)

I don't think Photoshop would even let you do that.

I can't see what's holding the bike to the car. There's an arm of some sort around the rear-brake. But what about the right side of the bike? Unless it's the end of the handlebars on the trunk-lid that's supporting the bike...

The exhaust will melt the tyres - or at least, as noted, cause the air to expand and pop them. And it seems the straps holding it on are just clamped into the boot lid... except that I presume the engine is in the back on most Ferraris... so would I be correct in imagining that the back will get fairly warm and potentially melt the nylon straps?
