I took that picture at a MS 150 rest stop. I didn't see the rider this year, only his bike. Two years ago he was riding a decked out S-Works Roubaix...with H3Ds, and those same pedals. He was riding in jeans, high tops, and smoking. To his credit he was still banging out a respectable pace! According to my go to LBS sales guy, who is also his, this guy is goofy (obviously) but loves to ride, and does it a ton. Now if the sales guy could just talk him into the combination top cap/ash tray we decided I should make for him.

I'd agree with that Euan. If you look carefully it's quite clear.

Every element has been designed from the ground up, without compromise.
This philosophy extends to the carbon fibre wheels; designed to accommodate the hydraulically actuated disc brakes, a unique feature on a road bicycle, allowing it to perform flawlessly in a wide range of conditions.

I have two freak bikes, this is #1 (the other to come). Bike started out as a Slingshot mountain bike back in the 90's and was converted several years ago into a single speed "cruiser" - basically a "bro bike" for when I have friends over, but between the saddle height, reach and drop, it's hardly a "friendly" bike for just about any of my friends to ride. Has an interesting mix of "Cutting Edge 90's Components" like AMP fork (disappointingly rusted), Klein Mission Control one-piece bar/stem (1" quill of course), Magura HS-22 hydraulic rim brakes (truly bombproof, haven't been touched in >5 years and work perfectly), no-name Chinese carbon crank (square taper of course), and.. to top it all off, some sweet 26" single speed wheels built up on Chris King hubs and Mavic rims.

I need to clear out some space in the garage, so sadly, this little freak will need to go. I know I won't get a lot for it but I think it might be tough to get rid of without parting out.
