Remember that time you forked out a significant chunk of the pennies to your name to buy that ridiculous $12000 Hermès basketball (strictly not for playing with, duh), justifying your decision somewhere between outdated and obnoxious tags of #yolo and #fashun?
Yeah, me neither. But in case you wanted to dream about adding to the ultra luxury sporting goods collection that you invariably do not have, Hermès have released a $10,000 fixie – because the world wasn’t brimming enough with things that are just so (morally?) wrong and deeply warped. Thanks, Hermès.
Le Flâneur d’Hermès (which actually translates to ‘The Hermès Stroller/Wanderer” because nobody in their right mind would actually put their lycra-clad butt on it and ride at any speed whatsoever) also boasts a belt-driven transmission, hydraulic disc brakes and a choice of eight or 11 gears integrated into the rear wheel hub, according to WWD. Wanker disposition not included.
