Interesting :lol:

you have no idea how many bikes I see like this, and most people are oblivious to the error, and most of those people are non-too bothered about having the forks put the right way around either... "bike works ok though?!" :facepalm:

There has been a BSO chained up near my house for a couple of months now with backwards forks.

I'm really tempted to sneak out one night with some allan keys and sort it. I wonder if he has ever thought about why the brake discs are on different sides at the front and back?

I doubt some people would notice if the handlebars were backwards.

I've been known to tighten headsets and straighten QRs on bikes locked up on campus.
