Warning: this bike will stab you to death and then die of a heroin overdose

In a further addition to the annals of inexplicable marketing, I give you Schwinn's Sid and Nancy bikes. They seem like perfectly lovely bicycles, but I'm not sure I would purchase a bike named after either Sid or Nancy. Do you really want a bike that pays homage to someone who famously had trouble staying upright on stage? And call me crazy, but I just wouldn't be that enthused about riding a vehicle named after someone who is mostly known for the manner of her violent death. It just seems like tempting fate a bit.
