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.

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.

This isn't actually a freak as such as the builder does this kind of thing for fun

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