What is IT?



Well first off It's just stupid. But, stupid is as stupid does so we had to try it. We stumbled across It on the way back from Old Chicago where $1 PBR's were flowing like, well, PBR's. It was located at Smiths where the purvey everything you need for a summer of fun. Food, beer, lawn funiture, Its'. It was not secured to anything so we decided It needed a test ride. Here's C-note on a bit of a pleasure cruise astride the It.
Riding the It can be described in lots of words, but two will do for now, "It sucks". Its hard to pedal, awkward, unstable, and bonus! It comes complete with friction multiplying go cart front wheels. Fantastic!

Not sure if the cape and spats will work on the It. That would make for a hellish commute. But bonus, It did have fenders.

Anti-geometry.

A few simple changes would make IT much nicer:
1) remove one of the front wheels and replace with a center-mounted skinnier wheel in some sort of a "fork"
2)Replace the seat with a more ergonomic one placed slightly further from the handlebars
3)Dispense with the skateboard-like appendage at the bottom and install a longer piece of tubing from the point where the stem meets the "head tube" to the top of the tube where the "seat" comes up.
4) a few minor changes in geometry.

Voila! "It" is a ..ahem.. bike.

Numeral Four: if by 'minor' you mean 'drastic' then I'm with you...

But then if it were a bike, it wouldn't look nearly as retarded.

But if IT weren't retarded IT would be a bike...hmm
