    I think that was a prototype by Scott that didn't sit well with Lemond. The mirror wasn't aero enough and they thought Fignon's glasses gave give a bad glare when in the sun.

    I don't think they ever heard the saying "Less is more". Looking at that reminds me of the Mod's scooters in Quadrophenia with all their mirrors and lights for some reason. lol.

    the cleaning supplies are on the table. but probably are needed to keep the mirror clean

    and clearly the bars are meant for a passenger to hold onto and do a chin ups while riding

    I saw a piece of a wooden broom handle used as a handlebar once. Sadly I hadn't my camera with me.

    How did they even do that?
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    If I was nearby, I would buy it just to save the poor bike.

    Pull it all the way back and you have a lap bar to keep you from falling out on the loop de loop.

    Photos are just proof of concept, use different sized extenders to get proper reach. Add more bars for more cool!

    better to roll them forward more, lace up between the bars a little, and put a pillow down for those long rides when you'd like to take a nap. I'm guessing the seller doesn't like things to go to waste.
