That is until now. You see, adult Big Wheels now exist. Yes friends, an unexpected result of living in an age that champions arrested development is that you can now ride around in a goofy large replica of a childhood racer courtesy of High Roller. Okay, so technically it is a trike designed to look like a big wheel, but why split hairs? This comes complete with a steel frame, the aformentioned handlebar streamers, a ginormous 26-inch front tire and the ability to support 275 pounds of your dubious purchase-making self. The price to recapture such past glory and earn the admiration of your peers? A mere $599. I’ll leave it to you to decide if it is a Rolls Royce for the emotionally stunted or irrefutable proof that we live in a glorious time.
Just a head’s up, if the rest of today’s posts are late it’s because I’m roaming around Philly on this thing, blaring Chamillionaire’s “Ridin’ Dirty” and generally being awesome. (Via Wired)
