      That's from overfilling the gas tank and having the fuel leak down the side. Then when you drive all the dirt gets stuck on there. Happens on my work van all the time when I try to top it off as much as I can.

      Just wondering. Who thought it was a good idea to make a bike with one GIANT wheel in the front and a tiny ass wheel the size of a personal pizza in the rear?

      Man...sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived. - Tenzin Gyatso

      There was a fellow around town here that would drive his yellow s2k with the top down while wearing a tweed jacket and smoking a pipe while letting his bushy mustache and beard rustle in the wind... I always thought "Like a boss" whenever I saw him and since we both drove the same car I would always make sure to wave.


      I feel like this penny farthing guy is probably more hipster than boss...

      I'd give him 80% hipster 20% boss status.

      Because the amount the pedals travel is less than the amount of ground covered by the wheel it allowed the rider to travel faster than he was pedaling without the use of gears and chains. in effect... the large wheel actually acted as a fixed gearing allowing the bike to go faster. The back wheel was smaller because it was not a drive wheel and did not need to be larger than it was.

      In the end it is an absurd design and has been improved upon by hundred of modifications that exist in modern bicycles... Some hipster's get their jolly's by being "ironic" though.. and so.... here is this guy...

      Like a hipster.
