    Don't know why people make fun of it. Looks wicked fun. I'd ride the hell out of it.

    That does look fun and perfectly serviceable to me. Don't let it bug you, I assume these are drivers talking, not riders. Besides, as you can see here, commuters are all a little "different", bike to yuur own drummer.

    It will be WAY lighter than my CCM from childhood an that was a very fun bike. Then there's the >$4 gas thing. You should have a very big grin on.

    I like it!
    Not enough gear range to suit my riding, but very nice in the looks department. Looks like it`s crying for a basket of some kind.

    There is no such thing as a “slow bike” if the right person is riding it.

    Who needs a the latest and newest gizmotech bikes out there? '80s-90s MTBs turned Singlespeeds will last forever and can be ridden over any terrain. Most of these old bikes have never been ridden close to the limits of their potential. I trail ride on an old Univega Alpina 5.1 and commute on Mongoose All Terrain. Got both at Goodwill years ago. They show no sign of giving up the ghost soon!

    free bikes mostly good. pretty much everyone where i live knows me as the "bike guy" so they give me bikes they dont ride anymore. some lady in my neighborhood told me to haul this one away.
