Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

keep in mind, the wide angle lens seems to be distorting him even more... especially in the first pic.

In that first pic he looks to be about 9 feet tall. It's easily distortion.

I didn't mean she was "fine" like in "hot". I meant her body looks normal and in proportion - not all sickly scrawny - so it's not the lens.

exactly just look at the wheel size of his bike compared to the bike in the background. At least in the second shot the bike is more proportioned to his body.

i can tell that it is a wide angle lens, but even looking at the edges of the photo there isn't very much distortion. all straight lines are straight. if it were distorting anything then the lightpole and the street paint would be curved.
