Just about everyone who comes into my office asks why I've got a mountain bike on top of the cupboard. I try to explain what it is, how I always wanted one, etc but they just stare blankly.

I usually finish it of with "It's art" and they reply "If you say so"

Tell me I'm not crazy.

You are completely sane!

If a cow in resin or an unmade bed are 'art' then the Manitou is a master piece!

it is art, but it's art designed to be ridden - get it up and running with some mud on - THEN stick it on your cupboard (after cycling to work on it!) :D

To be honest, the dents in the seat tube and the crack in the top tube put me off riding it a little bit....
