is going on with the bar/lever set up on this?
It looks like one of those horrible oversized anatomic handlebars for a dude with massively long arms?
Both replies make sense
Looks like the same setup as the Original Plastic Bike™ from the 70’s
Obviously ahead of it’s time but I’m certain in the future bike frames will be made of high tech plastic. They’ll make 'em by the gazillions and cheap too. It’s only a matter of time.
Even today’s high tech fibreglass with crabon is fairly cheap but I’m amazed at how much they’re still charging, and how much people are happy to pay for 'em. Compared to steel they cost fuck all to make.
anyway, end of rant
