Lean it against a tall tree or light pole.... climb up 'ladder-style'.... be very careful which way you lean :o

an ex-girlfriend had one of these...its a a 'Kickbike'. Great work out, high intensity, and develops the mythical buns of steel and is an attention grabber, but you look like a knob riding one. So (kick)bike... ugly...but (kick)bike and rider in action.. UGLY and ridiculous

"Kickbike"? Verbal masturbation by the marketing drones :roll: It's a frikkin' scooter.

Dunno if this has been posted yet, but it's ugly enough for a second look anyway

Nothing ugly about the chainsaw - it's just functional, unlike this one

I don't see anything wrong with the frame Andrew. Is it the moustache bars, the red accents, gold brakes or all 3 that you object to ?

Not sure what is so ugly about that Surly :?

It is an unconventional style of bike but built to a purpose - obviously for someone who is a bit short and wants flat bars with an in-line grip option.

If you're going to make your cabling highly visible by choosing a contrast colour for the outers then you really, really ought do it tidily! The front end of that bike is a mess (says the man with electrical tape holding his cables down, but at least mine are black on black, and it's only 'temporary' :roll: ).
