Some may think this commuter looks goofy, heavy, and archaic, but it is a dream to ride. I think it has a retro style, almost a randonneuring style minus racks and panniers. What makes it even better is the many confused looks I get from motorists in the greater Phoenix area. When they see a bicycle of any kind, it's like they saw a UFO. Throw this at them, and it's a spontaneous combustion of cognitive thought. I did, however, get a wave and a nod from another commuter this morning who let me know that I am not alone. He was riding a neon Klein that, ironically, did actually look like a UFO.
