I need this bike.
Okay, that's a stretch, but it is so much fun. I feel like a little kid riding it, or rather part Pee Wee Herman and part kid. It even has a squeeze horn, that's beyond hipster cool. It's a Monster Cruiser with 36" wheels—it's not an optical illusion in the picture, the thing is leaning up against my 700c Long Haul Trucker. 29ers are for pussies, 36ers rule!
It really is pretty comfy. Put a Brooks on it, it'd be a great Critical Mass bike if nothing else. I could commute on it, really, it's no heavier than my Tall Pale Hooker as normally appointed (though I'm sure it would be much heavier once I moved all those bags and racks over, and good luck finding racks for a 36er).
