Many things wrong here:
- that jersey (why tho ?)
- uncut steerer
- black stem, silver bars
- no bar tape
- no brakes (must be a fixie or SS, eww)
Edit: props on the classic saddle though :thumbup:

I was certain the photo was flopped, but no: somebody really mounted the crank with the chainring on the left side. Wow.

So many levels of wow.

I just looked at the photo again, and the seatpost appears to have "test lab only" written on it. Plus, that's a Specialized crank they mounted backwards. Is this something a Specialized employee did just to mess with people?

Probably someone building it up like that for a joke before they built it properly (although i bet it's still ugly.)

Maybe it's a prototype bike they ride around the specialized campus?

Being a Vias, it's actually not too bad.

What the hell is going on with that bike. Hose clamps and multiple shims on seat tube......brake arm length extenders......Grip shift appears to be on backwards........
