    Saw weird bike today

    Today I saw something weird. Could see it only for a few seconds. It looked like an ordinary bike from far away but with a weird front structure. The handlebars were mounted very high on some triangle structure. Looked like 3 pairs of 2 small dimater tubes connected fairly high making a triangle. On top of that the handlebars were mounted. It reminded me of mixte geometry but just in a different place. It's hard for me to describe this. I was going fast and saw just a glimpse of the thing.

    What was that thing? Does it have a name or history or is it something entirely unique?

    I can't really visualize it from the description, maybe sketch it out.

    Did it look homemade or factory?

    Interesting... Yes I think it was a Pedersen. At first I saw just another cyclist , then I noticed the handlebar were high with odd angles. When I was really scanning the thing it was already too late. I went by fast. Now it looks even weirder than I saw it earlier today
