Since we are on the Hateorade topic.................Noone that has ergo bars rides in the drops anyway, so the levers are in a perfect location :lol: in fact, the levers need to be up a little more.

As for the Tango..............Ugo hasn't jumped the shark. I have ridden a Tango (in the dark, with urban camo, night vision goggles, and a big GW mask :lol:) and it is a smooth ride. Not light by any standard but its not supposed to be, its supposed to be ugly...............*GW mask back on* mission accomplished, or more time sensitive, I didn't know it was supposed to be ugly :lol:

Can't be all that bad, as motor paced riders still use that set up.

I think the steerer tube is actually a seat tube from a 47cm bike? Holy Moly. Who rides this one, Yao Ming?

@ Martin moderator

Is it possible to PM me with the email address for the person who owns the bike "worst abuse of a top frame"?

Thanks,
