It’s the second Dirty Sixer I’ve ever seen…

OMG, the BIggest Mountain Bike I’ve Ever Seen – It’s the “DirtySixer” with Wheels One Yard Tall – “Lebron: Call Us”

Wednesday, May 8th, 2013

Have you seen Lebron James on a Cannondale? It’s not pretty.

So, to solve that kind of problem, here comes The DirtySixer MTB with 36 inch tires.

There it is, parked at Erin Sherbert’s favorite bike rack. Go ahead, click the link. This shot shows the very same rack, but look how different the bikes’ tires are:

Looking at this thing freaked, me, out.

Now myself, I’m 6 foot 1 and a ton of fun so you’d figure one of these rigs would be great for me. But no, I’m not even close to qualifying for the DirtySixer club. You gotta be like 6 foot 5 or taller to fit proper.

Perhaps District Eight Supervisor Scott Wiener could use one of these rides for Bike To Work Day 2013 tomorrow?  Why not?

Oh, the expense, what must be the crushing expense. I can only imagine what the MSRP is. That’s real titanium for the frame, BTW.

Now myself, I’ll have to make do with the MTBs sold for $200-something at the Marin Bikes Warehouse at 7th and Folsom in SoMA. (Here’s me on Fulton Street in 1st gear: Man, why can’t 1st gear be  lower? And here’s me in the Broadway Tunnel eastbound (scary scary): Man, why can’t 21st gear be higher? Srsly. It’s like I’m being punished by Shimano for not spending enough or something.)

Anyway, contact Dave French if you’re interested.

All the deets.
