That is a beautiful bike, like anything he makes, but i have mixed feeling about a bar with rise on a stem that is pointing down. Seems like they cancel each other out.

Granted, visually at least, it seems to work on this bike.

Oh, and I agree about the color.

It might not be creepy, but I believe its comments similar to that which make this and most message boards pretty much a sausage fest.

I guess it's not creepy(to me). Just stupid. Like 15 year old boy stupid. I'm sure a girl reading that would be creeped out a bit.

I suspect that when it comes down to it most of the regulars here know how to respect sqrls, and would stand up when called to.
