I love CMYK but with all this hyphy shit I'm getting so tired of seeing it. There are more tight colors out there!

The rear of the saddle gives you extra leverage to push against for more power and it acts as a bit of a butt-fairing. Both concepts have been made illegal as they are supposed to provide an unfair advantage.
early 90's:

They made a few saddles that were raised at the back but looked more or less normal.

They made those illegal too.

For real. Nothing against vegans or straight edgers, but if you feel the need to put it on your bag...

From the description this is a folder. This might explain the odd location of the shifters. Obviously the owner (who also built it) rides the hell out of it.

"1910 Dursley Pedersen 'Path Racer'.
These bikes were designed by the Dane Mikael Pedersen in the 1890's, and made in England in a village called Dursley, in Gloucestershire, up until 1914. The 'tensioned' frame is very light and the tubes are soft-soldered together! Pedersen claimed that the design worked like a girder bridge with triangulated elements to make it strong. In reality that's not quite right from an engineering point of view, but it sounds good in theory and it looks great!
The saddle is woven cord slung like a hammock between the head and the seat tube. Its a bit wierd to ride as the saddle swings from side to side as you pedal. You cannot stand out of the saddle on a Pedersen. Also, because the forks have such a shallow rake on them, the steering is very twitchy!
This is a rare 'path racer' version of the bike with adjustable drop handlebars and stem. Probably a contemporary adaptation of the bike for use on the track/path."

That thing looks scary to ride esp with the handlebars so low and the hanger for the seat up by your chest.

excuse my ignorance, but is wearing a bag with "vegan straight edge" painted on it any different than dudes who put anything else on their bag?

I saw some kid with "SINNER" painted on his Chrome the other day.
I laughed, but not at him, at myself ten years ago, cause fourteen year old Rusty would totaly have done some shit like that.
In fact, I'm sure he did.
