Was inspired by the length of the steerer tube on this Trek (its not been photoshop'd - its genuine and for sale in Cycling Weekly!) to create a topic to pay homage to those bikes that are just plain wrong...

^Maybe it's just me, but those bikes look at least one size too small. Seat post a mile in the air and then a mile of spacers, or stems pointed straight up in this case, are dead give aways of an awful fit.

EDIT://
Now that I look at them closer, both pictures look very "shopped". Hopefully that's the case and someone isn't actually riding them thinking that's a proper fit.

I am struggling really hard between killing the Touring Canyon's owner or the Merckx Pink-izer.

This thread is so hideous that it's cool in a weird way. Pls make your contributions! I will dig through my files and see if I can come up with anything nice.
