Works for me. I even tried it from the link in my message and it worked there too. It's pretty frivolous but a way to waste a few minutes and get an idea.

Seems that the guys from conti had too much budget for their web site. A tool to helps you color coordinate your tires, bar tape and frame? Please.

Saturn has a cycling game about tossing bike equiment into a moving car with the doors open. I imagine the web designer pitching the idea: "And for only a few thousand dollar more, if you click on this link it will direct you to a game that combines cars and bicycles..."

the beauty of it's single purpose form. Now here's a bike that has no pretense. It's made for long, solo, maximum speed efforts, period! The ultimate in form follows function. That's beautiful to me.
true, dat. i'd thought about one of these,...Js Haiku Shop

but if i bring home another stray, i'll be livin' in the garage on a pile of old, greasy rags. on second thought, that might not be so bad. either way you cut it, this thing prolly costs something like seventeen grand, not including pedals. too rich for my blood! :o)

I think you could hide an electric motor inside that disc wheel, and a pretty large battery or fuel cell inside the downtube... hmm?

Oh, no, I got bike envy again. Probably won't happen, though. That bike's about 7 grand as shown, I think.
