Maybe I just live a sheltered life, but I have never seen a seatpost with an "S" bend like that.

I have been staring at this bike trying to figure out the brake routing. I'm pretty sure that this wasn't covered by the patent on 'dual control levers'.

Terrifying.
Note the aero of sorts, maybe, front brake, tucked, to some extent, behind the fork.

Double decker stem, bars, and brake levers is so last year though - I'd like to see a triple decker.

Like this?
:shock:

Sort of. The two stems were closer together and no controls on the drop bars...

Not exactly a freak, but I'd love to try such a bicycle. Must be incredibly fun to ride.

Oddly enough, I think Di2 makes a lot of sense on a folding bike for travel.

An expensive option but it does in a way. I'll wait for the wireless version. You know it's coming.

A new trend in bike fitting? Rather... evolutionary.

The continental is wonderful, such a bike would fit well in the hills of Austria in a sort of Sound of Music-esque setting.

That thing has taken a small frame and built it into a larger one? A small tank.
