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)

Why would you uninstall a brake that comes installed on the bike just to reinstall the same brake incorrectly?

This is from a bike shop site as built for a client.
WTF is with such a small frame and ridiculous seat post length.
surely you'd just get a frame to suit your size.
it's the most unco thing I've seen awhile.

Sometimes I hope, even pray to whatever obscene gods would hear my prayer, that some of the crap we see on the internet is a setup and that humanity isn't really that stupid. That fail blog picture above makes me hope and pray even harder.

...

I mean, that has to be a setup, right? No one could really be THAT stupid, right?

I'm seriously considering doing something like that with my old Huffy that's clearly unsafe to ride. It seems like it would be a nice "wtf?" for people walking by.

Anybody who would think to set that up would probably be a cyclist. However, the bike's brake levers would at least be set up at similar angles, if that were the case. Therefore, it's probably some dope who ran in to best buy and doesn't realize that poles have an end.

I don't have a picture, but one of my fraternity brothers was locking his bike up with a Fahgettaboudit lock by wrapping it around the head tube. Not through the frame or wheels, but around the frame. I told him he needed to lock it up better, and when he didn't listen, I stole the bike and reassembled it in his room. He got the point.

Around the headtube inside the frame triangle? Around the steerer tube? I'm not really understanding how he had it locked.

I'm betting it was in such a way that one could gank the stem, remove the fork, slide it out of the lock and reassemble.

The picture didn't turn out well, but I saw a cruiser at school locked via a cable lock through the basket. The bike itself is a theft deterrent, but still it was pretty funny.

Not even that complicated. The wheel is quick release, so I took that off, slid the chain over the bars, then down the fork.
