I've been following the Bike Snob NYC blog for a while. Funny stuff.

He's been running an ongoing thing on ugly bikes. I can't get enough of it.

So I thought that we needed an ugly bike post.

Here is a couple from the Bike Snob site:

I've got a few on my computer at home I'll post later.

How about these bamboo bikes?

Some might not look good, but they all are functional.

This one is not too bad...

I ve always hated the treks with those Y type frames. I think there were other makers with similiar designs and I hated all those equally. Its a pure appearance thing though.

Nothing Ugly about these, its actually beautiful.
Yeah, not only do they look fun, those scoots have soul! Check out the braking mechanism. Besides, I'd rather ride with those cats than a bunch of elitist jerks. :thumbsup:

Sorry but bamboo bikes are sexy.

Agree! I do think they are sexy and beautiful. Actually, I love bamboo bikes.

One of my favorites...

don't hate on the softrides, way less ugly than many of the bikes pictured here!

bamboo bikes = I want one.
more to the point, I want to race XC on one.
snag some woodland camo lycra, or better yet, ride in a partial ghillie suit...
hell yeah.

i'll drop a G on a quality CF or titanium lug set meant to complete a bamboo bike, easily, as soon as somebody puts one up for retail (won't happen in the lawsuit-happy USA though).

Beautiful, strong and light. not to mention heck of a conversation piece
