New Velo-me-natty Rule. No 267: Your stem must be inversely proportional to your head tube. 80mm head tubes and 170mm stems for really tall guys and 30mm stems and 210mm head tubes for really short fellas.

Dude, that thing is sweet! I'd assume it belongs to a racer/parts slave who wanted a sweet commuter.

Ok, I checked out the twitter replies and saw the comment about the photoshopped chain.

That’s not enough for the freaks thread. Besides, it’s artificial. We need real-life freakiness.

I wonder why. Photoshop in a new chain to hide a used chain?
