    Not mine. But, thought the lack of derailleurs would intrigue y'all.

    Lol, not exactly a single-speed, but still a cool bike (no pun intended). Out of my price range though (and not very useful in San Diego anyway).

    It's ok, I would not pay that much for it though.

    I have seen this bike in person. Well, at least one of the three like it. Needless to say it is freaking beautiful. Would love to take it for a cruise but damn the price is just a tad high.

    The new Surly Pugsley ...

    with the mega wide tire clearance could be set up similarly, for a lot less than $6500. Granted, it's not custom titanium, but it's also not the price of a decent used car.

    I get your point 65 Ben Franklins is alot of money for a bike, but if you see it the way do, I think it's a bargain for three of a kind Ti piece of history.

    Hell there are more Ferrari 250 GTOs out there than these babies and they fetch like $15 million the last time I checked.

    It'd make a nice bike for the beach, or any other conditions that suck normal 2" in.

    Fork

    Moots really should make this style of fork available.

    Hell, a Hanebrink extreme bike is better in the snow and costs less and even has a front ski option.

    ... and if we just ... I was thinking the same thing ....

    they sure don't seem to have a lot of traction on them. Anyone know what they are / their intended usage?

    I admit that the collector's item thing is neat, and if i had the cash, i'd love one - but from a practicality point of view (and yes, i consider the idea of that bike as practical), the surly seems like a better deal ...

    or maybe one of those weird little "burro bikes" ... they all have eccentric BBs for some reason, so SSing or fixing one would be no problem ...
