There is a new one from GT Cycles now called the Gutterball. I think it is about $800 or so.

The one in the picture isn't mine but I have the same frame. Also, I was all ready to hate on that 3Rensho for not actually being a "triple-triangle," but I realized it is... it just has a ****ing trapezoid in there too (I want it so bad)
