Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

^ was thinking the same thing. That is a skirt/bike skirt and the wind caught it.

1. Size of the shoes, they look small.
2. The booty, look at it, looks female.
3. The pose, looks more feminine than masculine

The maker of that bike didn't realize the fork is supposed to go inside the headtube until it was too late.

fun facts:

26lbs
you can buy one for only $954 usd (if you live in europe)
lead time is 3 months
limited to 50 "bikes"

Does the cut-out pattern affect strength?
Yes, that's why we make our tubes bigger (40 mm) and thicker (2 mm) than other bicycles. It does not affect the weight too much because we cut away half of the material.
