this has to be a joke or as the Brits say someone taking-the-piss. I want to see a video of someone riding that. Note the location of the downtube shifters, the caliper brakes and canti studs, the method(s) of joining the various (ahem) parts of the frame. It looks like the top tube is some sort of adjustable suspension member. And the downtube - what can you say. And it's a three speed. Triple chainset but no rear derailleur - which makes it a single speed unless the rider changes to a different length chain. If this bike is actually used it just might be the champion of all freaks.
Yes i'd love to see it ridden, but mostly I'm curious what happens when the rider shifts the front derailleur to the big ring. That's when both devices on the main triangle become handy :lol: .

Front disc, rear rim brakes, Grip-shift, mis-matched tires, mis-matchd rims, Walmart level rear derailleur, worlds longest crank arms, and a scalloped downtube!!

I'm sure I missed a few things, too!!

White stem, weird handlebars, and worst of all, leaning a bike on a white couch.

Mismatched pedals perhaps? Or are parts from the right side still connected to the shoe?

Looks like they're Crank Bros Candy pedals.

This ad entertained me. He says this “racing bike” only weighs 12.5 lbs, even though in his last pic the copied description says it weighs 20.7 lbs.
I like the bottle holder or whatever that is on the back.
