That looks heavy, very heavy. Striking though.

looks like something Fignon would have ridden, if it weren't for the glaring illegality of it!

This isn't a freak per se, but just a fun journey into an alternate reality:

Sent to me by a friend who described it as "a lovingly detailed jackalope of a web page." It really is worth a little time to read through it, absorb the pictures, and have a little fun with the idea. It's old, so some of you may have seen it before? :noidea:

Maybe the rider's really tall with long legs for his height.

Although he could flip the stem and lose a cm or so of spacer.

Or is it the clashing gold paint/gold ano that's offendsive?

Color is a personal choice and I wouldn't base that as the reason for freak, but that collection of spacers is clearly Freakish!!!! Especially on an expensive Speedvagen frame... I think the bike if offered for sale on eBay at $6,000
