Good luck, and ride safe this weekend. See you Tuesday.

The owner of this fixed-gear freestyler is selling his Hed 3s because:
--He's having financial problems
--He keeps rolling tubulars while skidding
--He's upgrading to Zipp discs
--He thinks purple Deep Vs would look "more tighter"
BMC has dropped its Team Elite 01 carbon hardtail from its range. What reason did they give?
--"Unfortunately BMC failed to convert exactly the claimed quality level of the prototypes into the serial production."
--"Despite our best efforts the Team Elite 01 hardtail did not deliver the performance and durability that customers should reasonably expect from a top-notch performance bicycle."
--"Our Taiwanese contrators were unable to realize the designs of our Swiss engineers in a manner that was cost-effective."
--"They kept breaking."
The good people at Fyxomatosis claim (incorrectly) that the rider on the right:
--Is attempting to convince the rider on the left to adopt brakes, bar tape, and a beard
--Is one of the fastest guys on two wheels in NYC
--Is discussing the finer points of jean-cuffing with the rider on the left
--Is in fact reclusive blogger Bike Snob NYC
What is the most likely inspiration for this bicycle?
