This is overused but appropriate in the context of this thread.
I think a few too many people give a little too much of a crap.
If I think a bike looks funny, I'm gonna laugh at it. If someone thinks my bikes look funny, they're gonna laugh at it. It's the way work. People get unnecessarily worked up about other peoples' opinions when an opinion really does not matter in the slightest if you don't let it.
And I think there has been some misinterpretation of the word freaks here. It doesn't have to be an offensive term. We aren't discriminating against the bikes, just having a bit of a laugh. I'd love to give most of the really odd bikes a ride just because it would be fun.
This is our shop ride of choice. Wonderful for the 10m between workshop and counter.
And ejm's SS race series ride of choice. Deceptively quick. Nicknamed the demoraliser. He wins frequently. I kinda want one.
Madcow, I want that Trek.
