Please have a look at:

It has never been used, it was part of a G-Star Store window for years.

Thanks!

That’s how I’m thinking when I see these fenders, they’re like nipples on a man. But more design-y and less evolved-y.

That front fender’s going to leave some wet feet and a soaked BB. I hate when designers leave out the functionality of a product that serves a specific function. What’s a blender without blades?

…snelson was exploring sculptural concepts utilizing poles held in place through the dynamic tension of wires w/ out fasteners…thus the tensional integrity…bucky fuller coined the term ‘tensegrity’ by the obvious marriage of the two words…

…i extrapolated from the terminology, that rather than calling something by the awkward term, ‘a tensegrity system’, why not refer to it as ‘a tensegritous system’…logical english language evolution, no ?…

…the reference to the human body is both a good & simple example of a tensegritous system…our bones (poles) are held in place by our muscles (wires) but we’re only fastened to the ground by gravity (ie: we’re not fixed in place) & yet through the complimentary forces of tension & compression we have an amazing range of motion & action…

…why, you’d have to say we are structured in a synergetic format rather than an opposing format…but, hey, lets hold off on that for now…
