    i think there should be a rule that you can't defend your bike in this thread.

    This is turning into another jackass thread.

    Somebody is bound to get butthurt about something.

    This thread will eventually do more harm than good.

    Eventually, yes.

    Hint: don't post your bike in the "what don't you like" thread if you can't take criticism.

    The problems come when people post other people's bikes and that bike gets ripped-on. That's what happened in the Jackass thread and people have already posted bikes that aren't theirs in this thread.

    I don't know what this forum's obsession is with berating other people's bikes. I'm not innocent. But, it's not right.

    We spend way too much time being petty and nit picky about other people's bikes.

    I'm of average proportion with long arms, which is why I like a frame with a long top tube. In my experience, I've found that most people riding fixed choose bikes that are too small for them.

    There's this myth that track bikes should be a lot smaller than road (geared) bikes, and a belief that you need a bunch of standover to protect your junk. Also, some think it's cool to have a ton of saddle to bar drop, even though it's very uncomfortable.

    +!

    Huge saddle to bar drop only works when you have a steep seat tube angle, such as on some Keirin sprint bikes (or the Schwinn Sprint for example). But, if you have a normal seat tube or, god forbid, a slack geometry then huge saddle to bar drop is terrible.

    I think the standover criteria came from their childhood. That's how kid's bikes are fit.

    And what is the deal with non setback seatposts?

    I mean they shift the weight the front of the bike and it's so uncomfortable on the rider's arms and hands.

    I love it when people are concerned that a high top tube is going to somehow "destroy their nuts". If you come off the seat and are not in control, chances are your feet won't be flat on the ground. 2" of bend in your knees and your junk is still destroyed!

    I ride small frames for the "pro look".

    ^ drop bars not fully wrapped. Apart from that, it's really freaking pretty.
