Google weird bike or ugly bike and see what you can find.
There will also be a poll on which bike mod is the worst.

I thought it was long decided that the VTSP/Cyrusher XC700 Machete Pro is simply the worst bicycle-shaped-object that exists. The Amazon reviews are absolutely amazing, though.

I've clicked on that bike, and others like it, so many times that even facebook thinks I want one now...

Question 1: Is this bike laterally stiff, while remaining vertically compliant?

Answer 1: This bike literally defies all laws pertaining to gravity.

Vendor defiant rebuttal: Well, according to our feedback and profile, you can see that we just start here on Amazon. I did not why there is so many so called professors never buy and use this bike have such on earth reviews ? It seems that have something new been destroyed by them giving them such beautiful feeling.
So even they can tell the died one feeling too in the coffin just like witch ?


I guess I just feel too in the coffin?

Yep. This is why we google our question before starting a poll.

1. The brake levers on that thing. WTF?
2. I have no idea what is happening with the rear brake and rear derailleur. There is a lot of hardware back there, but what does it do?
3. The current set of graphics on the "cyrusher" feature the stylized word "$port" no less than half a dozen times.

There is a chainstay-mounted kickstand, for one thing. A perfect addition for a Vioer!

That bike is nothing short of a minor diety.

All you fools on Cervelos are going to kick yourselves in the butt when you see that I got the exact same thing for $750.

AND a kickstand.

Perfect for staying dry while commuting.

The bike underneath actually looks fairly decent.

bars that are flipped upside down so the person can sit upright on a road bike since the brake reach is so reduced.

one such example...

Ah, ok. I'm familiar with this, just didn't know that having a DUI or being a bum was a requirement.
