    Considering how often he had the ball stolen when he played in Philly...... :-)

    Who is Shawn Bradley? A basketball player? He must be tall to have a bike like that.
    It doesn't get harder, you just go slower.

    Played for Philadelphia, New Jersey, and Dallas. He's seven feet six inches tall.

    Finally read the article at the link the OP provided. Turns out Bradley took up cycling to help lose weight since he retired from the NBA. He's serious about it. And in a week in which sports has been connected to vile behavior it's a pleasure to read about a genuinely nice man helping kids.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! He's ten times stiffer than that frame.

    Poor Manute Bol could have ridden that bike if he raised the seat a bit.

    True dat. If I am not mistaken, he did missionary work between colle and the NBA. But your joke was still funny as all get out. I was still a Sixer fan back then. Now I couldn't care less about pro ball.

    Wow. I've got a 36" inseam, and I couldn't even pedal that sucker, I bet.
    I have a heck of a time getting a properly-fitting bike... I guess it helps to have some pro-athlete money to buy that bad-boy.

    Saw the title and thought 80cm had to be a typo. I couldn't comprehend a bike that big. My new one is 56 cm and I'm taller than average.

    Then I opened the link.

    Wow.

    That is all.

    Yes, he was an LDS missionary for two years before he joined the Sixers. About as wholesome a guy as ever laced up. But not aggressive enough and often injured.

    Shawn Bradley played for my local team, the Dallas Mavericks, for quite a while. He took a lot of abuse for not being a star in spite of his height. I thought he handled it quite well and probably got as much performance out of his body as possible and was a fine citizen. I would not mind him living next door. That is a lot more than you can say about many NBA players.
