I remember reading somewhere that he rode. The sunlight washing out the top of the Flite is probably contributing to the nose up look.

Surely someone as flexible as spiderman can lose the spacers though?

I think it's a great. Maybe he'll insipre a few kids to get into the sport.

Nice bike.. but he really needs some water bottles.

That spacer stack looks ridiculous. Why doesn't he at least flip his stem (if not get a higher rise model)? Somebody should point out to him that the whole pro look is spoiled by that!

Aside from the stack, at least he has a proper rig. I guess he's done his homework (or his assistant at least :D )

Hadn't Spiderman 2 been sidelined for a while due to his back injuries? Maybe he needs a bit more upright position. though I do agree, the spacer stack is awful.

He's not even close to hitting her, and that SR mount is just aweful. If i had to rig up all that for it i would just change the bars.

I'm surprised by the white tape and saddle, power meter and he shaved his legs. The stem stack is real world guys, get over it. Sure he could flip it, but some don't like the look.

So in the first pic is he method acting, getting into the role so to speak.

I thought the Donnie Darko dude was going to play Lance.

Supposedly Lance wanted Matt Damon to play him but he wanted him to quit smoking first. :lol:
