You don't find that upward sloping saddle, ahem, uncomfortable? Or is the apparent upward slope an optical illusion based on the picture angle?

If it's amputated, upward sloping saddle isn't uncomfortable, and the lack of a... unit... ahem... saves weight!

Very nice, Donald. I hope you really enjoy your new bike. Bye the way what kind of seatpost is that? And to all the people hating on his bike and the frame, I would like to remind you this is the WEIGHT WEENIES forum! You might have forgoten with all the doping and will my fashion bike look cool with this new part posts. But that bikes like Donalds is a big part of what this forum is all about. Thank you Donald for pushing the envelope. I prefer mine to be a fair bit heaver, but respect weenie O.C.D.

who's hating?

"did you take that thing over any sweet jumps"
napoleon dynamite reference


then, two people comment on how the saddle is tilted really far back in what looks like an insanely painful position. one makes a (bad) (attempt at a) joke.

i personally think it's an awesome build, from what i can see. i want more pictures and more information though.

Sorry I was unclear it was more of a reference to other posts on other threads about this frame and bike

Just my opinion, but doesn't this thread merit staying in the Road forum, given that this is not just a run of the mill bike, but an ultra ultra lite ww road bike, more worthy than the vast majority of threads of being in the road forum?
