    If Donald Trump rode a bike. It would be that one. Looks gaudy and gauche to me.

    I hope the photographer got permission from Mr. T before he snapped that pic.

    It is very pretty. Perfect for bikes that hang on the wall as a display.

    I see the oversized cogs with cage start at $500. And top out at near $2k.

    Yep, jewelry.

    Stout beers under trees, please.

    fify.

    More Americans wanted Hillary Clinton to be President than wanted Donald Trump.

    Donald Trump has never had a wife he didn't cheat on.

    I have to hand it to Ceramic Speed. They have tapped into a gold vein of opulent conspicuous consumption. They are the PT Barnum of bike parts

    A great way to show the world that you have more money than brains.

    Years ago, I remember poshbikes being bleeding edge, offering custom CF doodads, including rings and cogsets for those who'd have Jeeves swap out new parts after every ride.

    I lusted for AX Lightness brakes for years as I waited for that lottery ticket.

    It doe's but with the Ceramic Speed pulleys you cannot use just any lube. There is a specifically formulated lube made from Moroccan argon oil that is required. But, it's only $95.98 per ounce and well worth it

    don't they know that chain drives are going the way of rim brakes soon? we're all gonna be on belt drives and pinion gearboxes by 2025, if Sram and Specialized have their way.

    If Ceramic Speed and Stringbike ever teamed up they could definitely push the envelope of absurdity

    Close...I live a stone's throw from Oaktown in a place called Pinesville which is within a mile of Cherrycity on the left. I'm a rapper and that's my whip.

    I'm slim shady.
