This guy is 6ft 4in and has 38 cm bars...

32cm!

I'm 5'10 and much prefer 38's to the other options. Be curious to try something narrower.

Don't have overall pic but as you can see on the ? logo, the bike has been spotted at the Redhook crit.
Edit: the large gap between seattube and rear wheel could suggest a downhill bike so you could have been right here.

errr it's obviously just a Hooligan.

Big chainrings are necessary on a small wheeled bike/recumbent to keep the cadence down.

Who needs a valve extender when you have a hacksaw?

It has an eccentric cam bottom bracket, so I'm guessing some kind of single speed.

As is the curb-hit rim?
Look at the outer edge just to the right of the valve.

The reason for sale in the ad for this one was because it was "too small".....
