The generator light on that suicide-shifter notsurewhattocallit is freakin' awesome. I had one of those like 50 years ago.

this one reminds me of a dude I know who makes 10, maybe 15k kms per year, yet still uses platform pedals, has 0 drop, but has such a huge reach he looks like he was flying.. gotta try to take a picture lol

I love this concept, pretty common actually: tons of spacers but levers positioned like 1-2cm below top of the bars..

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