It's a good time! Pretty much the opposite of my mtb's - Upright position, heavy, long, slack, slow, vs. Arse up, head down, compact geo., light go-fast-machines. Perfect for a pre-dinner ride, when you've been working on a Sunday
Also the ss/coaster-brake/low bb combo keeps you on your feet, so to speak - You really have to attack ascents, and if your cranks aren't level before you go over roots n' stuff you get punished
And when did you become the OP of righteousness? Thank you for your opinion. As the arbiter of good taste, original postee, builder of some of the strangest cockpits on site and general offender I say bravo. If you want to ride a girlie looking shopper, a mixte message mtb, a dodgy dropbar diamondback.....
you get the idea.
I do believe that we have some latitude in the cock department. All are welcome as long as the spirit of the thread is maintained, and there's a cock, preferably of the pit variety somewhere close to the required aesthetic.
behold reverse triple cockage with added bulbosity of frontage.. And that was on a race!
