Amusingly enough Steve had a very legit Paris Roubaix list at Motorola:
Of course the year of this monstrosity was 1993, which is also Steve's worst P-R year

I think bike fitters would be disgusted by that ride position, the toes are so dangerously close to the front wheel and I can't even imagine how awkward a sprint would feel like on that bike

How is that any different from a small sized frame which pretty much all have a degree of toe overlap?

Honestly? I don't think that they have any room for much else on there!

I think Bauer and Eddy were testing and possibly trying to set a speed record on a down hill section. There were some articles about it when he rode that bike. From what I can remember I think he only rode the bike a few races, but that is just a guess..

Am I the only one who gets ideas on things to do on my own bikes from this thread?

I'm so happy the UCI killed designs like this one...

That doesn't meet the definition of a bicycle anyway... maybe a pentcycle?

That is tony martin's off-season bike, when his plums are healing up from the griptape on the seat.
