With all the noise about going green it comes as no surprise that more and more people are finding new and less environmentally damaging means of transportation. Case in point: biking has recently reached a new height in popularity. But we know saving the planet isn't the only reason. Bike messengers have been tricking-out their rides for years and in doing so jump started the fixed gear hysteria.

Now, every wannabe cool kid can be seen peddling around town. And, in usual fashion, as hype has grown for this new trend, companies as well as high profile celebrities including Kanye West, Adidas, and the Standard Hotel have thrown on their late pass and collaborated with bike brands to create highly sought after, crazy expensive and, in some cases, completely unattainable bikes of their own. We gathered some of the hottest models we could find so you could sit and droll over...
