    Tight Bikes!

    there have been threads asking people to post their japanese bikes, italian bikes, english bikes, french bikes, and others. sadly i don't own one, but am a huge fan of tight ss/fg bikes.

    so... begin!

    and

    that bike, i find very aesthetically pleasing; the fork/stem/handlebar combo is amazing. but in general, the GT seat stays perplex me (not sure as to whether i like or don't like them)
