This is a damn cool ride.

This is a damn cool ride. How tall are you? Just wondering I totally relate but its a 63cm to start with then that seat height. I bet I'd feel normal standing next to you. Super nice.

That's a bold gearing ratio.

That's a bold gearing ratio. Are there no hills where you live? And how tall are you?

This bike looks alive.


Awesome, aesthetically beautiful frame. Like if you were in a fix, you could shoot it and eat it.

Hola !

Hi! from Mécico city, your bike is so elegant and very pretty, "Sweet dreams in the Road", ZZZ-ZZZ-zzz-zzz, bye friend.

This looks like a wild

This looks like a wild animal! I love it! I'm curious about the bars...are you ever nervous about its strength? Steel rod inside? Wrist sensitivities? I love the idea of mixing elements.

I'd be more worried about

I'd be more worried about the width of the bars tbh!

No worries

Thanks. Sometimes it reminds me about a water buffalo...
Actually I am not worried about the handlebar at all. It is made of solid oak wood. Since it is so short the momentums right at the stem are quite low. Besides that I am not the type that gets up and uses the handlebar as a lever while accelerating. I have to admit that I was worried until I made a test and stood with all my weight on one end of the handlebar without breaking it. (The bar was clamped in a pipe for the test ;)

the thing

The only thing missing is velocity faux-wood rims


handlebars look very nice. also dig the cable housing, too!

ok, the seatpost close up looks extremely disgusting, btw. leather was not the first thing that came to mind when i saw it, lol!

Are you serious!?

Are you serious!?

Paper, Rock, Scissors

Seeing your "Paper, Rock, Scissors"-Bike, I would like to give the question back to you. ;)
And yes, I am serious about it.
