    $2,100+ for a single-speed frame?

    Have any posts lived up to that yet ?

    Personally, if I had to pay that much for a Single Speed frame - it had better be gold plated, hand-rolled on the naked thighs of blonde, busty, female-welders and hand signed by Jesus H Christ himself

    It's not my opinion, it's the premise of the whole thread, as stated by the person who started the thread.

    Retail on the frame for my SS was $2300...but I bought it NOS on fleabay for $300. Maybe I got a good deal, maybe it was a terrible frame.

    Yes, there are a number of bikes that live up to that, mostly early in the thread.

    *shrug* well, whatever. It hasn't stopped several people from posting bikes I am very happy to have seen, and I doubt anyone's gonna scroll to Page 11 and read through this dialogue to ensure their bike meets community guidelines before they share a photo.

    I say, let the badasses with sub-$5k bikes break the rules!

    Well, I had interpreted badass not to be the most expensive, boutique or limited edition but rather a bike than makes you turn your head as you see it roll by and shout at the biker, "Hey, what kinda frame is that?" where the response would be " Don't worry 'bout it, it's too badass for ya!" as the rider flips the bird and keeps rolling away into the distance. The kind of bike that makes Huggy Bear say "Damn!, I gotta get that in my stable." The kind of bike that makes a religious woman swoon and faint at the thought that God would allow such a thing in the realm of man on Earth that would most certainly start a war.

    Kind of, badass is in the eye of the beholder idea.

    If the OP wanted the most expensive blinged tricked out ride then the OP should have stated it explicitly in title, so I think he's got some 'splaining or clarification to do. Better start a new more aptly titled thread.

    Also, not that it matters, but my Bianchi SS is way more badass than Hurricane Jeff's. Although, it may not be more badass than Cornfield's, if he ever finishes that build...

    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    I still don't see what expense has to do with it
    Which would be more badass - a Ferrari 250 GTO Berlinetta or a Muscle Car ?

    Besides - I am clearly the winner as my frame has skulls on it - and there's nothing more badass than a frame with skulls :-p

    I think there is a general expectation that anyone posting to this thread at the very least read the first damn post on the thread. It's just good forum etiquette. #getoffmylawn

    When did making a new thread become an execution of police power? Just have fun sharing, guys...
