You know the man, Paul Budnitz. You know the legacy, Kidrobot. But did you know this crazy mutha makes bicycles? So far, all we have to go on is the one picture he's posted to his blog and to the new site dedicated to this venture, but from what I can tell, wow, I want one! As an avid cyclist myself, I worship at the alter of form and function. And I really love when an item wages a battle within as to which is greater. Trying to decide which one takes precedence here is futile. It's a 50/50 split.

Even though there's just the one picture, it gives away plenty of clues as to the seriousness behind Paul's intent. This bike is going to look equally amazing on the street as it will inside a frame hung on a wall. Disc brakes, internal cables, and drive train all point to the thought that went into this creation. And do I see an internal-geared rear hub?

I'm also a sucker for detail, and so I love the way he's branded the bike with that gorgeous scripted "b" inside the elongated hexagon. The picture hints at a chrome frame, but I'd like to think there'll be some Kidrobot inspired paint as well. But all that's trivial compared with the larger picture. It's a bike, and bikes are win/win for everyone involved, and living on this planet, you're involved. 

Now, if only he could make a ton of bike paths...
