Put some clipless pedals on that baby, and you'll be ready for the Tour next year. Cool pic man.

Even with the glare, I can see that the welds are not up to the quality of Serotta or Seven.
Saw one today, being ridden...Bruno S

Just saw one today, of course it didn't say Litespeed. A girl was riding it. She could not go very fast because of the limited gearing but she was having fun. It seems well built and it had rear suspension. Seems to be an alternative to the scooters all the kids are riding now a days.
I actually have one on order...biknben

Was told by my LBS that the manufacturer is totally overwhelmed with 30,000 orders. To my knowledge they are called "Runts". Not only is there rear suspension but front suspension as well. I took one for a test ride when I first saw it but when I went back to purchase they were sold out. You can't go any faster than walking pace. They have no brakes. You just put your feet down to stop. It really is nothing more than a toy but the kids in my neighborhood would die seeing my ride around on it. It's just a novelty. Oh yeah...They retail for $125.
