Notice there's no cable attached to the lever and no caliper in sight.

That's just what he wants you to think - it's actually a new set of invisible brakes developed in top secret hipster laboratories. He just can't afford the matching lever yet so he's hiding it as best he can.

Some people just refuse to admit they bought a bike that's too small for them.

true, not having a place to put your burrito is definitely jackass.
JK didn't notice the no fooT retention, that is def jackass on a fixed gear with no brakes. i could maybe see it if its fixed with two brakes and no foot retention...but that might be jackass as well (is two brakes on a fixed gear jackass? or just overly cautious?)

aerospokes tend to be jackass modifiers to me....like if it has other jackass things going on and an aerospoke its like +1 lol....i have seen bikes though that had aerospokes and wern't jackass at all. i remember that guy Gyeswho on here had some beefy looking bike with racks and dual aerospokes and liked it allot

I do like that it looks like it's never been ridden.

it's probably not worthy of the jackass thread, but the combination of everything is really nauseating.

That's the blog I saw it on, too. Also, it has a mis-matched fork. If you look through that blog, though, there are some decidedly porn-worthy shots of other Cinelli bikes.
