Interesting bikes.

I am pretty sure both of these are owned by the same guy.

What's with the blue tires on the ground?

Please tell me that it doesn't have to do with social distancing. Bikes cannot transmit the 'rona to one another.

Putting the lie to the idea that a picture is worth a thousand words?

Maybe explaining why you think they're interesting might be a good idea. Because right now, all I get is people set up handlebars in ways I wouldn't like riding. This is not surprising.

I'm feeling the nonfiled cutoff bars. I mean, really feeling them. There's a dangerous situation waiting for an opportunity. Both of them set up to do some slicing/dicing.

Might not be street legal. Many states require both a front and rear brake. Though none enforce it. However a clever attorney might use that to their advantage if any injury case was to go to court.

On bike 2 the knee-activated downtube shifter is kind of interesting, and that the saddle and stem share the same angle is at least funny.

The radially spoked cut-out high flange hubs are likely to break before the month is over.
