Cool fixie

This was a cool fixie IMHO, but then you saw 10 every day and color coordinated components in any colors became boring. Interesting choise of stem and seatpost, typically you do not see quality hardware such as Thomson on a fixie.

Magic Motorcycle Cannondale bike

This is what remains of a once famous bike that was shown at a bicycle show in the early 90'ies (check out picture below). It is just a concept bike for Cannondale which means it is not rideable and the frame is solid billet aluminium. It was sort of a show stopper at the show and stirred up a lot of controversy because it was a revolutionary design, but totally unrideable bike and made by motorcycle guys. Cannondale was very sure the bike would be released in the future, but here I am in 2014 still waiting.

Ibis Bow Ti singlespeed

This is a interesting and unique build on the famous Bow Ti frame by Ibis. Singlespeed, red anodized rear rim, lights, fenders and high rise stem combined with riser bars. Only bar ends are missing!

Insane Drillium again!

Do not chose these cranks if you are going to compete in the hillclimb competition!

Broken Yeti ARC

This is an old Yeti ARC that has cracked at the seatpost binder bold. This can happen if you overtighten the seatpost bolt. Believe it or not, this is actually possible to repair.

Insane Drillium

Before purple anodization there was a fad called drillium. Drillium is all about drilling holes in your parts making them lighter. This is more modern variant of drillium called dangerous drillium.

A gorgeous road bike (not)

Needs more italian colors, why not stripe the handlebar in italian colors?

Did Raleigh really make Klein?

If they did, they speced a double tripple clamp on it.
