Couple on there I'm not sure belonged on the list. That one from the salt flats that used training wheels to get up and moving plus the tron bike or whatever.

I am really getting tired of this.
Some days I kind of like the handlebar tassels / braids I see on different bikes and some days I kind of think maybe they look a little goofy.
