The reach is already like 40cm, you might as well put the saddle on the stem next.

Speaking of a hillclimb trainer, here's a guy going Strava KOM hunting on a beach cruiser.

Just when you thought you'd seen it all...I keep looking for photoshop evidence, but don't see any.

And the nice toe overlap, hope he doesn't need to turn.

RD and cassette are too small and there's no downtube.

That picture is a fake. Watch closely his left arm. It rests *at the right* of the front wheel. Also, the two arms of the rider and the two arms of the fork aren't aligned at all. Nicely done, but still.

Lol what? Are you looking at it on a phone screen from the '90s or something?

Every single pixel of that image has been photoshopped, and they haven't even tried to hide it :lol:

LOL.......-this- Not to mention the front wheel/fork is just a giant blow up of a normal 700c wheel. Look at the size of that hub and skewer!

Saw this in tokyo last month.
This custom fair weather commuter frame with unpainted scorch marks as design elements, using 12 or 16in wheels.

Sorry couldn't get a better photo.

Also saw a moss bike from a distance.

Tokyo is awesome for freaky bikes. Image
