You're more concerned about the length of the grass than the lack of cranks on a finished bike?

I simply assumed it was powered via some sort of smugness drive or by the power of porridge?

Don't be hatin' on porridge - breakfast of the gods. Who was it who said dianobol was breakfast of the gods? Well they're wrong - quite clearly it's porridge, and the bowl that's just right.

I'm not sure my upside-down On-one Marys count as drop-bars:

A little wide, but really comfortable for me.

On-One really should have made the graphics look right either way up on the Mary Bar!
