Venom Bike Line By Specialized

An innovation on one of the most efficient vehicles around, or high-tech design nonsense? You be the judge! (Update: As a number of astute readers picked up, this is indeed an April fools hoax. But you can't blame us for being optimistic. Hey Specialized, we want the Viper!) Cycling manufacturer Specialized has announced that it is working on prototypes for revolutionary new bikes, set to be released in 2006. The new line of bikes is being dubbed the Venom Line. The bikes feature aerodynamic design and revolutionary technology that was pioneered by a special research team in Japan. The full range of bikes can be seen here.
