Peddle.

We the all consuming, are bombarded with the relentless shpiel of global warming and its destructive effect on our fair land.... Green house gasses, fossil fuels, Kyoto, glaciers, aerosols - Blah Blah Blah. Yet the folks behind the statistics, models and computer generated simulations fail to agree on whether or not the increase in temperatures (Eh - A degree or two would be much appreciated to us porcelain northerners) are the repercussions for our menacing ways... tut tut tut. With good intentions (no guilt involved... Pfff!) I try and be that bit more of an Eco friendly type of guy and yet I fail miserably, lights are left on to scare away ghostly figures (Yup - Im still afraid of the dark) and should I be vilified for wanting my fruit to be as snug as a bug in infinite amounts of unnecessary packaging (there's nothing more disappointing that a bruised peach - right?). Guilty? without question - how do I sleep at night? Easy, My theory that the brains behind the polls and the stats are tied to the existence of a problem for no other reason than that of monetary means - Ignorant , I agree. 
Due to grave peer pressure, I do plan to decrease my carbon footprint by peddling from A to B and there is no finer way to do so than to invest in a paint by number bicycle brought to us by the team at JellyBean bikes. Inspired by their Australian counterpart Marc Newson, the colour crazed team enables its band of merry followers to decide on the colour of the varying parts... There's one condition, colours of the primary kind or not an option, instead choose from very cherry to plum. Delicious.

i'm late when it comes to bikes. only learned how to ride one when i was 17. and up to now i'm afraid i will fall. but knowing about this customizable bikes gives so much motivation to get back to cycling. but my city's not that bicycle-friendly.

I want that primary coloured bike... partly because it reminds of childhood with those bright colours... and partly because those are my school colours and I'd officially be the coolest kid on campus, lol.

I think with the first one you don't even need a light, cause it's reflecting...let's save the earth! and yeah we have the sweetest fruits here and I'm gonna miss them.

They are absolute perfection. But as a sometimes driver, most of the time pedestrian, could you please not be a cyclist that either wants me to run them over or wants to run me over?

But I'm a sucker for primary colours. Couldn't you just buy it all in white & paint it?
