They never used to be that low but this is now only for racing...

What's your collection like? I'm always interested to see the other big bikes around!

I've posted this on here somewhere else before but, what they hey?!

This is me and my XXXL Race ORS after a particularly wet and muddy Polaris some years ago.

To give some sense of scale, I'm 6' 7" tall and the seat tube is 23" c to c and the top tube 25" c to c. Gatetastic!

What a handsome chap!

I've also got a couple of custom built road bikes - a Pat Rohan and a Chas Roberts - and a ridiculously small 21" Orange Clockwork. I'll see if I can get a pic or two. :wink:
