The Puma bike - a waste of time and money

The Puma bike was designed by a 28-year-old grafitti artist "Murawaka" and 26-year-old Keigo Kamide who would appear to know nothing about bikes. The 8-speed he bike is heavy, fragile, soft and spongey as an overboiled ramen noodle, and looks ridiculous. Kamide made some of the parts out of special Kutani ceramic - a method guaranteed to ensure that the first time you drop this bike, something will snap.

The bikes are being auctioned, with the proceeds going to an earthquake charity. But save yourself the time and trouble bidding and just give the charity your money.
