Some from BSNYC. I've seen many bikes with backwards forks in London. A fixie conversion I saw yesterday must have had the axle behind the steering axis. Shame I didn't get a shot.

P.S I hope tapatalk photo upload works.

Okay, maybe not technically in the spirit of this thread, but still somewhat freaky and funny... :)

Her sunglasses are OVER the helmet straps. Properly done if you ask me. Good lighting too.

That bike looks pretty tough, even with the flower shaped pedals.

Helmet wearing technique needs improving.

Still, she's happier than most people I see riding. I'd rather ride with someone smiling and positive than negative and frustrated all the time with their power outputs and random sh*t that loses sight of the beauty of this sport and activity.

I'm sure someone has helped her with the helmet by now, and she's still riding with that smile on her face.

Props. :thumbup:

She's a councilwoman from New Orleans. She may not ride often, but it is nonetheless good to see a politician make the effort instead of just making words about something. I guarantee one of her staffers have helped her with the helmet hiccup since then, and I hope that she's still riding more often than not. She should afterall: New Orleans is ridiculously flat for a city and is exceedingly bike-friendly both in infrastructure and public policy. Again, props. :thumbup:

Councilwoman looks like a one-term-er to me.

Here is a jewel from the Cervelo forum - What goes up (stem and spacers) must come down (unique bar shape, angle, and shifter location):

Those fake Dura-Ace C50's on that Cervelo are poor taste. The Seven is just offensive. :smartass:
