Good Lord, I find the amount of detailing on this bicycle outstanding:

that's Captain Nemo/Steampunk/Art Nouveau rendered into bicycle form.


I'm not sure it is actually meant for riding though....

i can appreciate it from one angle but i actually don't like it. i prefer a bike to be uncluttered and meant for a practical use.

Form before function springs to mind.

Do not ride next to the sea, as a large Humboldt squid (lacking a Nautilus to grasp) might well take a fancy to that!

... there's some interesting touches,
Athough slightly too close to the rear wheel for my liking, I like the way the chain tensioner has been built into the chain guard...
.... I'm also impressed with the solid tubes to carry the cables and wiring against the frame...

Given the fact that its got a dynamo hub, disc brakes, a hub gear and a traditional riding position I'd give it a go - some else would have to clean it afterwards tho' :-)
