    Bike for an orangutan?

    http://chicago.craigslist.org/chc/bik/485050676.html
    Seriously, look at the top tube/seat tube length ratio. Who could possibly ride that? Kid with freakishly long arms? I dont understand, please explain it to me....

    Headsset ... no ... drinking fountain! Headset ... no ... Interesting - but I've seen a couple like this - one guy can really do some funky stuff on the bike too.

    It's a BMX bike. That's just how they are, for whatever reason. Riders of bikes set up like that don't tend to pedal while seated.

    Ya, what a damned joke that bike is










    All of these bike are/were mine at one point. You would be suprised at what you could learn if you weren't such an ignorant fool.

    No point.

    Also, $350 is a damn good price for that bike.

    If I'm not mistaken T-1 makes very highly regarded custom BMX bikes in Austin Texas, and WTP is probably right, it's a damn good price for that bike.

    Hey now ... I don't ride that way, but I ride with guys who ride that way - and as I stated - they can do some funky stuff on them.

    My TourdeBar group has had a serious issue and didn't ride this past Summer, but the previous year brought out an interesting group of characters, there were times when the guys who came out to ride were more focused on one thing so we all went over to the concrete jungle and these guys figured out different ways to ride, rim, jump, etc over to the next and so forth. I bowed out of that stuff. Fun to watch though. One guy has a few bikes - and I'm soooo sure the mfg is Broadway???? dual chains? Kid is awesome.

    so there.

    Very nice indeed, and they don't make completes, just frames.

    And from what i can tell by the photo's he has some pretty nice parts on it.
