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

I ride on the roads of Massachusetts, and even then I don't think something like that is warranted.

Maybe......I am not sure what a pair of 650 Spinergys are worth but it can't be much.

That is the most eccentrically cool thing I have ever seen.

Not from a cyclist's perspective, though. I wouldn't be caught dead on the thing.

What's sick is that putting that bike together took some work and a vision. Whomever did it originally should be shot....or at least prevented from touching a bicycle again....


....ever again.....

Pure ignorance. I bet some newbies are bidding on this bike thinking it is a good intro to road biking.

For all those times when you feel like flying off of a 5ft drop while in an aero position!

Wow, a road bike without all that weight-saving, rigid tubing that makes a bike handle and climb well...

I like how "This bike shows so little wear that it appears practically new, with no dings, scrapes, or scratches".

A good clue that it was unrideable.
