Inner City Bike

I must admit that I am not really into bicycles. Especially not since my own bike was stolen several years ago, and the city I live in is seriously impractical (steep hills, almost no bike paths).

But, I recently came across J.Ruiters "inner city bike," which looks rather catching. It is not the most practical bike in the world, as J.Ruiters states:

Before all the bike fanatics get all fired up, we know this bike doesn't solve everyone's personal transportation dreams. Performance wise, the bike is on the slow side, quirky, and fatiguing over longer distances. Consider it a cafe racer with the performance of a beach cruiser. The positives are easy quick turns, huge power to the rear wheel to go over curbs and other city scape structures, and great start / stopping / sitting situations. 

So it is really good for simply popping out to go a short distance, and you will look smashing while doing so. But, it is not one you would use to get to work every morning.
