    all old components that were already hacked to fit my previous frame. the old trek cracked so I swapped it all onto a cross check. probly won't change a thing.If at first you don't succeed... you fail.

    I know some people will think it's ugly, but I like it.

    Change the front fender maybe. And it needs a dynamo hub/lights.

    And blanket statement. 0 setback seatposts are bad. Just bad. You're killing america if you have one..

    seatpost is a stand-in, however I do prefer a zero setback on 3/5 of my other bikes. this is a trailer hauling delivery bike so it will not be receiving any kind of love. it will never ride as nice as my 20 year old dumpster found trek so really it's just kind of "oh well, another bike day".If at first you don't succeed... you fail.

    erik, your ugly is a practical ugly. everything has it's purpose on that bike. i support this. and it's not nearly as ugly as most bikes out there.
    zero setback on that frame ftw, seattube is wicked lax.

    I love the chopped drops with bar ends clipped on. that looks super comfy. That's a sexy sexy machine and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. What racks are those, homemade?There's always money in The Banana Stand

    i dont know...looks like if it weren't for the setback post or that the saddle is clamped towards the rear, that you'd be sitting on top of the rear hub.

    Erik doesn't need a pep talk. He's got all the good shit on there, like old XTR.
    The thing is ugly, and I bet he rides the shit out of it, and it works perfectly.

    The best part are his DIY racks.
    Awesome.

    It is. The kid next door to me used to have a fuji track with a suspension fork, only without foot retention or brakes.

    I think every part on that bike was originally intended for a different purpose...Naaaah, too uncool for the #messlyfe. I just like to hang out in loading docks and pretend to talk on my radio so that people will like me. - Mfratt

    qft. aero's are stupid. mags in general are stupid.

    maybe it's some super polo bike or it was a quick joke since it seems to be an internal hs.

    Alex, i disagree.i mean that looks like a 10 cat bag, easy
  13.  
    naw, that's some dumb keirin bike that some racer decided to start a trend by cramming the seat tube angle all crazy (you're sprinting the whole time in keirin more or less, comfort is not needed) for "intimidation factor" since the bikes are so over controlled, and it caught on briefly for that reason. Supremely stupid shit.But the fact of the matter is: Bones heal. Chicks dig scars. And the United States of America has the best doctor-to-daredevil ratio in the world!

    ^^not the worst, but I'm one of those weirdos that still likes composite wheels. An $850 IRO though? I think the price is the really ugly part.You said time was infinite, so why the watch wrapped around your wrist?

    Really? The word I heard (from Ceya, who is generally pretty good about these things) is a dude back in like, 87? had a medical issue and couldn't properly sit on his saddle (prostate, maybe?). anyway, he had a funky seat position that a really steep seat-tube facilitated. He won a few races, some other riders tried it, it didnt really stick.dongpincher 1000

    My information is 3rd hand 4 year old fuzzy memory from bikeforums knowledge so, you might be right, although I don't see how that position would do anything but be worse for your prostate.But the fact of the matter is: Bones heal.
