Hype: Porsche Bike S Is A Really Expensive Way To Not Own A Fixie

Everyone knows Porsche’s cars.  What everyone might not know is that Porsche likes to make other stuff.  Like, non-car stuff.  Seriously they have a whole other division for it.  They make furniture, apparel, phones, you name it!  All of their other product is cool but one of my favorite things is the Porsche Bike S.  It looks amazing and totally speaks to Porsche’s automotive design-sense.  Its one of my favorite items to drool over in the Porsche exhibit at the LA Auto Show.

Its made from “hydroforming” aluminum with carbon fiber forks and it is so light it feels like its made out of paper!  It has an 11 speed gear set from Shimano and hydraulic disc brakes.  Yes, disc brakes!  If you couldn’t tell by the amount of exclamation points I’ve used in this post, I really like this bike.  The only thing I don’t like is the price: $4,449.  When a bicycle costs as much as a used car then its kind of a buzz kill.  Oh well, I’ll always have the LA Auto Show.
