Interesting quote from the recent Serroota-Patooda thread:
"When I see a bike set up with the bars 4" below the saddle, I think Hmmm.....the racer look, and pretty damn useless for 95% of people who ride bikes and 99% of people who could afford to buy a $5000.00 bike."
So I'm wonderin. What are you paying for? I mean, that ticket, you'd expect to be getting trickle down racing technology, for, you know, going fast and stuff, or for builder expertise that, you know, wouldn't be satisfied by just pullin a bike off the shop floor. So the the 99% who get them $5000 bikes are just doing the trundley-dundley around the county on Saturday, really, what the fuck is the point?
this question is nothing new -- and do consider the source. I'm just a cheap wannabe racer douche. but still...I fail to see the point.
