Come on guys, this is 'progressive purism' on display here. The Brooks saddle looks dangerous at that angle though.
Independant Fabrications make some nice stuff.

It was more the curve not looking smooth on the first one that made me worry about the rest of the build quality.

Any why curve it anyway? The shortest distance between two points is a straight line - any extra is more metal, less rigidity and more weight.

Tiny gear though eh? That must be about 50 odd inches. The bike looks like its going to be light and the tires look pretty utilitarian so whats the point of this tiny gear? Wheelies?

I like wheelies!

T'is kind of a small gear, but I wouldn't turn the bike down because of it if someone wanted to buy me one. :D
