My first thought was the red bike on Pee Wee's big adventure.
Hope you don't ride that in public!spyderman

This bike looks pretty hot in person. The black portion is all carbon fiber with a visible weave.

I'm not sure if I should try and Plug it in and play it, or ride the damn thing. It's heinous in person
I like it.newridr

Heaven forbid bike co's try anything different. Curved top tube? Nice. As soon as someone big rides it, everyone on this board will start liking it.

I betcha Robin W. likes it (and gets one)

It looks like a damn beach cruiser. I might buy one if there is an accompanying carbon surf board or something like that.

I'm prettymuch a traditional geometry kinda guy and don't even really like compact frames, though.

I kind of like the bike, but gawd, that D/A crank is FUGLY! nmKG 361

I agree: the DA 2004 crank is what I'd describe as pug-ugly!Synchronicity

I like alternate designs (besides the traditional diamond frame) but there is something aesthetically a bit off with this one. Maybe the top tube curves too much compared to all the other straight tubes. You shouldn't mix curves with straight lines. It clashes with itself.

I'm a lugged steel traditionalist, but every now and then one of the ultra-modern looking bikes sort of appeal to me. This one does. I doubt I'd like riding it (I like the geometry more stretched out), but I don't mind looking at it a bit.
