Fuck what a disaster.
" I finally came up with something original!! "
I’ve come up with original things before too. Doesn’t mean they’re any good.
To quote Snowflake’s quote:
It’s a fine line between stupid and clever.
Well I’m sure snowflake will defer to David St. Hubbins whose quote it is…
There’s not a hand position on those bars that you couldn’t get on a normal set of drops. What a tit. He said those bars were banned from racing, if not for being ugly as sin, probably because they are unsafe.
Haha how bizarre.
I thought I’d seen these before…
So here’s the riser version!
Apparently this guy on velospace calls them “mantis” bars.
Still look stupid though.
They have the advantage that they’re fully customisable, in that you can put them together however they suit you. Buuuuuut… I can see precious few ways that you could set them up that wouldn’t be the same as using drops…
thats up there with the shittest bikes i have ever seen.
They are supposed to go on a set of drops, near the stem and function as a small pair of tri bars by resting your forearms on the flat of the drops.
I think Scott was the first to make them, along with several other different bar designs which never really took off:
They look like Cinelli Spinaci bar extensions (or maybe the BBB knockoff version), which were supposed to give a more aero cruising position. They were banned by the UCI for mass start races because they were deemed unsafe. I had a pair at one stage, they were shit.
That bike is proof that you can in no way polish a turd.
And if you try, you will only get shit on your hands.
Pony is correct - But mythbusters proved you can literally polish a turd.
Confirmed, gayer than fixed gear freestyling.
Still trying to work out why you would waste your time making them…
for anyone interested, you can buy them here:
reminds me of the the “antler” photos that come up on bsnyc occasionally, they are piss funny
OMFG - This thread is still going!
