Want. This. Bike.

Want. This. Bike.

It's Friday, so here's a pointlessly pretty bike . It has metal wheels, because apparently you can make working bike wheels out of nothing but sprung steel, so why wouldn't you? Also I suppose it keeps you from getting flat tires. It's not the next big thing in bikes. It is not going to get more people doing bike commutes. But it is awesome-looking. If you stay at the W Hotel in London, you can use the bike until the end of October. After that, it's going up for auction to benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
