    Fixed gear bikes and sloping top tubes

    circa 1893 La Porte Indiana

    It's none of my business what other people think of me.

    They must have retouched those bikes.. Do you think guys that rode sloping top tube bikes could score chicks like the ones in the picture? No way.

    I totally looked at the bike on the right and saw chopped down flat bars first, and the rest of the long handlebars in his hand after I woke up...
