Seen during my overnighter two weekends ago. Ocean City, NJ. It was supposed to be a three-day but there was a bad front scheduled to move through Saturday night so I packed up the tent, etc., on Saturday morning and rode to Atlantic City to catch the train home like I had planned to on Sunday. Good thing I did. When I watched the news Sunday morning it was in the 30s and raining where I had been camping.

That's a high-end carbon fiber bike, right?

But it looks like the fork is on the wrong way round. It will just ruin the handling of a fast bike like that.

Maybe it's one of those Lauf leaf-spring forks. Those things always look like they're installed backwards.
