AB's "Not Sure" & "Average" & "huh?" thread

I'm often criticized for posting questionable bikes in the Jack Ass & Bad Ass threads.... so, this thread solves the problem.

At least it looks like it's actually IN Brooklyn not some small town in Iowa or something.

I can't see how that Brooklyn would handle any different than a Schwinn Varsity or the like.

Why the second rear suspension. Are their two separate pivots?

Look into the Pugsley.

I've seen pictures of the pugsley before but never noticed that they used rear hubs in the front. Of course none of the other pictures had full cassette on there either so I guess that made it more obvious.

Sexy, sexy, sexy Pinarello with that smoked chrome finish but it's been converted but nothing's been shaved off or anything but the bars are unwrapped but at least he's got a dumby lever...
