You'd be better off riding that backwards, sitting on the bars and using the seat as tri-bars :D

Should have got an internal Di2 battery, it makes the bike look cluttered :lol:

When someone here decides to do RAAM then I'm sure they bike would look equally cluttered. Props to this person for even undertaking such a ride.

If it didn't have a huge stem erection then that bike would be awesome.

That man sure hates backpacks, can't say I blame him, certainly not a freak bike in my view.

Would tend to agree, except that it seems to be a Lynskey.

Not sure about the down tube bottle cage.

But this thing is purpose built. Some may disagree on the purpose, I suppose. But it is not a freak build.

No RAAM rider in their right mind would carry so much crap. I've never seen a RAAM bike with more than a small pack under the seat, and even that is unnecessary.

Apparently those bags are only for long training rides.

A friend of mine does "Maverick" category racing. That's 400+ miles unsupported.
I would imagine the build above is ideal for that type of racing.
As for RAAM? Those racers are supported by their own team, often with a van or caravan.

Anyway, it isn't a freak, let's move on. :D
