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

To buy a fixture so extravagant, you'd have to be flush with success.

Are there Pedalforce or BD equivalents (such as Toiletforce or Toiletsdirect ) that'll sell me one for cheaper. How about a group buy?

Also, do you think a Toiletforce toilet would be as stiff and perform the same as a more costly name brand carbon toilet. They come from the same Taiwanese factories don't they?

I don't know, but I like the cutout. Relieves pressure.

If Cervelo made one, it would be optimized to break wind.

Avoid those, they pack them in rice and you'll find old newspapers inside.

When I take a dump, it has to be on a handmade bowl created in a small workshop in Seattle. The shop owner needs a strong personal philosophy to drive me.

It will also have a vaporware flushing brifter, em, handle that will delay delivery by further three months.

If Colnago makes it, it would cost three times as much, and have no warranty...but that's ok, Colnago owner's feces don't smell.

Colnago has a warranty, it's just that no one has to use it.

I hope all metal parts on this thing are titanium, because for $1K there shouldn't be any cro-mo or aluminum on it at all.
