    I think the only thing this over engineered bike is missing is Shimano airlines, with a matching yellow bottle of course.

    It looks a lot like a green norco with the same stickers on ebay a couple months ago. That thing is disgusting.

    it's from the same site that had that really heavy gearbox hub on it.

    They claim it cost 20K to build

    Filth... I wonder who funded that idea. Better off spending it on crack.

    All I can say is WOW! That could possibly be one of the ugliest bikes I have ever seen.

    Like fat chicks and mopeds, it is probably fun to ride as long as your buddies don't see you.

    Anyone else confused by the build cost? unless it's titanium, or platinum, then there is no way in hell that cost them 20k.

    Well it looks like a regular bike with the ski kit bolted on. Plus it looks like the tires will be on the ground too and maybe the builder was hoping for some kind of braking traction. (Um yeah, good luck with that.)

    Wait scratch that, there is nothing "regular" about that steaming pile! :p

    It's more of a psychological "brake" per se....

    There are lots of custom machined parts hanging off that thing, what look could be custom air shocks on the skis and custom made skis, I'd consider 20K to be a pretty reasonable estimate considering the cost of fabrication alone, even if they have their own machine shop to cut all the metal the overhead is pretty expensive. Obviously you've never tried to prototype anything or you'd understand that even ugly prototypes that don't work cost lots of money.
