Every time I see it I like to imagine it's owned by Shingy

Naturally, this bike is partially tarck's fault.

When I think of Shingy, I think about what a good grift he had going, and how he ruined it by looking like that and going on national TV. Kind of like Pengy

That is the grift.

i like how he included the vintage track bike pictures to make it clear that this is totally normal and not a thing he's doing because of his t-rex fit

it's not even a t-rex fit, because the saddle is slammed all the way BACK on the rails.

i also didn't realize it was possible to have a 0mm stem.

I sent him a quick snark email, "This is a joke, right?"

his response:

Quote:
Hi Brian,
Thank you for expressing interest in my bike. People buy what they can afford. There are many things in this world that are expensive and rare. This is one of them. If you can't afford it or feel that it's overpriced, simply move on and buy what you can afford. This was a 5 year project with some serious thought. I couldn't just go out and buy this vision, I had to just build it. I guarantee that you won't find another one like it, hints as to why you just didn't move on, but decided that e-mailing me with your hidden insults was a good idea. You can't afford to even make me a stand tall offer. Some people buy rare cars and others buy Honda's. Enjoy your Honda, but know that you'll look like every other robot in the world. A suggestion for you, try to build one. The price then will start to look extremely affordable. Good luck.

I hope he responds to me with the Honda bit. To which I’ll reply “Here’s the thing: that’s the Honda.”

I love how, in his mind, not appreciating and making an offer on his bike just means you’re another mindless automaton.

I'm just curious how it would feel to ride a bike with a cockpit like that.
Awful, I'm sure. But awful in ways that I can't really imagine.

I asked him how much for the stem and QR skewers and he told me $500. He knows he's being trolled.

i'm assuming the owner realized that the aero post made the seat approximately 5 inches too high for him to be able to adequately put both feet on the ground at a stoplight.

Lol. The first shop I worked at had a bunch of trade in semi-aero posts that used to come standard on TCR's. I wanted one for my sweet fixie so bad but never followed through.

That guy copy and pasted that response over to me. I fished some snark back to him. Can’t wait to see what he says next! He’ll probably just send me the same paragraph again.

“LOMAF! This ones not for you man, move on. It's quite rude and disrespectful to low ball and down grade people's shit. And it's actually not a run of the mill Cannondale. The example you sent me is not even the same bike, so you don't know bikes. You're super funny though man!”

More so than ruining the geometry with that fork I want to know who welded that brake tab on. If he sent it back to moots he should say so, if he didnt....well he should fucking say so. I really would not fuck with some titanium tinkered with by some hobbyist.

it would only work bum-bar style because you have to get your forearms around the captain's hips

the handlebar looks like a Specialized-branded Nitto version of the 3TTT Biomorphe ("the Liberace of gay handlebars")

he's selling those NOS too: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Specialized-Nitto-Mod-V-Pistol-Grip-Drop-Handlebar-44cm-Japan-25-4-New-NOS-NIW/272133971873

the barends are bored to 23.8mm instead of 22.2, and the stem is for a 25mm seatpost?
