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)

I can't believe this thread is still going. How many times can you criticize someone's saddle-to-bar drop or their lack of foot retention before it gets old? At least that bike is running a front brake (that's more than I can say for myself).

Don't even open the frickin' thread if you don't want to read about crappily set up bikes. Calling captain obvious, there's somebody posting jackass things in the jackass thread.

Looks like someone's riding a frame that's WAYYYYYYY too big for them.

Actually, judging by the downward-sloping saddle angle, someone just doesn't know how to set up their saddle properly.

Are we looking at the same bike? Relative to the top tube, the saddle is actually tilted slightly upward, which is normal for Brooks saddles.

i'm guessing that bike was for sale and the previous owner took his pedals off and put the bmx for test rides and what not, if the bike was for sale i'm guessing it was being sold because it was a touch too small for him

It's alright, they're a freshman, they don't know any better. They have at least a year until they're riding in circles at the MU.

I'm confusing users here, holy.

Either way, that bike rocks.

To be fair, the "Mantis" guy posted the pic in a thread on the SS&FG subforum to ask about cutting the steer tube, and someone pointed out his upside-down bars. He even thanked the member who mentioned the bars for preventing him from embarassing himself on the street.
