Default Revolutionary bike design

One of these was for sale on a local newsgroup (and the seller obviously
thinks a great deal of it $$), so I had to take a look.

It has cranks, gears, chain, 2 wheels, seat, stem, and handlebars on a
frame.
Why is this a "revolutionary" bike design?

I assumed it was humor.

It's the lightweight, platinum finish high-ten steel frame that weighs in at
a 33 pound bike, that's quite revolutionary, what ever it is. I saw one of
these autoshift bikes, it had some sort of belt connecting the derailer with
the wheel, never did understand how it works, but if I remember correctly it
didn't very well.

The rear derailleur has a weight that makes it shift
instead of the 90s model with the weights on the wheel spokes. All for
brain dead or brain less shifting. I'm home from work today and have to
go work on that 3 speed Gazelle.Day off and its snowing so wrench time
before Miller time.

It's the alloy kickstand. DUH.

Maybe 'revolutionary' means that the welder was imprisoned in the
Beijing student protests.

I should have specified that the "revolutionary" was part of the original
ad, not my personal take on things...

"Weight: 33 lbs.
Fork: Steel
Seat: Foam"

Of course that is revolutionary. My bike has a foam fork and a steel
seat. Doesn't yours?
