Tyre replacement? No quick release?
Gonna be hard to put a speedo on that thing too... or fenders!

Still - i'd ride one for sure for coolness factor alone.
It'd raise the profile of cycling ten trillion fold!

See a guy riding one of these every now & then:

Wow! that really is something. It is really cool, not ugly :D If would be ugly it was only an halfa effort to get a square "tube" look, and was painted. Oh dear, do we need a cool wall :roll:

I first thought the curved tubes were going to be the bike. Had to look twice.

That square tubing bike is absolutely fantastic.
I think what makes it look good are the seamless joins.

I really liked that square tubed alu bike posted by melb-ourne... until I saw the seat. How can anything match the smooth, modern minimalist look less than that seat???

Livetoride's twisted bike is plain cool! I wonder what it's done for the structural integrity though.

Cheers,
