    Robriguez Funny Bike

    A friend of mine is lending this to me to try for a bit. Robriquez Frame and whole mix of parts. A real bastard.

    I haven't taken it out for a ride yet, needs a few adjustments to the seat height.

    At least with that (hideous) stem, it is almost rideable!
    I have a front brake, but I only use it for slowing or stopping.

    That stem is barfy. What did your friend pay for this bad boy? If I may ask. And let us know how it rides.
    Go bike yourself.

    Forward sloping top tube, high rise stem, drop bars. Down-Up-Down bicycle mood swing status.


    But yeah, cool story brah.


    Try it with a few different stems/bars and report back.

    I love it when people take pursuit-type frames and do everything they can to make it not ride like a pursuit bike.

    can someone clear up some ignorance on my part....
    pursuit geom frames are designed to have crazy aggressive ride position specifically for track racing, right? what type of bars typically go on pursuit frames?

    because i keep seeing pursuit frames with risers or stems like on this one. or both.

    ^^ Not my bike. Just illustrating how a pursuit bike should be set up. A bike like this obviously isn't designed to be cruising around town on.

    Actually, there are very few human beings that could ride that bike, period. Even on the track, it would require a rider with a pursuit physique, long very flexible torso. You won't see any sprinter types riding a bike like that.

    He does have a stem with a little less, er, vertical to it with bullhorns. He threw these on for me to try and more "comfy" ride. The 650 wheels are sooo teeny though! I haven't had the ride yet. Bit busy.

    I'll find out. What he did tell me is that he got it from the frame-builder who built it for himself, and that he has taken it out on a track in Seattle.
