    Itís actually an ingenious idea, in a Jerry Springer kind of way.

    I've heard of 160mm hardtails, but doesn't this seat tube angle and seat position look a bit crazy. They're almost dead center above the rear tire.

    Probably has an owner who's very self conscious about new geo.

    At least it's not an "endo machine" anymore.

    i'm guessing the original fork on that thing was about 4 inches shorter...

    Hence the *bling* idea to put the fork on backwards to counter balance the geometry differences. Lol

    That bottom bracket height doesn't look abnormally high IMO. 4in down in the front would put the BB pretty low. The chainstay angle looks within reason as well. But, not a perfect profile angle though so may be the case.

    those wheels are definitely bigger than 26" and the bb looks to have a rise instead of a drop. agreed on the wonky pic angle making it difficult to tell though...

    It's a Manitou, reverse arch. Looks like that custom frame has a nice start of rust.

    the glob of metal right below the seat clamp looks really nice too... What is really nice are the dropouts for the rear tire.

    I wonder if anybody is on here looking at this and going hey, thats my ad!
    A pristine bike free of dirt, scratches, and wear marks makes me sort of sad.

    That's definitely worth saving. I'm looking for a wheelset right now, I'm going to be on the lookout to make sure I don't end up with a fixed gear front wheel.

    Custom does not necessarily imply quality...
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    Motocard Refill Card TurboSpoke Bicycle Exhaust System

    Each Motocard has a different shape. The different shapes mean that each card vibrates in a different way when the spokes hit it. This means that a range of engine sounds are made. Each card also has two "power-slots" so you can actually tune the sounds yourself by adjusting how much of the card is in contact with the spokes. Try it out and race against your friends! A must have accessory for your Turbospoke!

    -**For use with Turbospoke - the bicycle exhaust system

    -**Makes your bike look and sound like a motorbike

    -**3 additional Motorcards for 3 different sounds

    -**Truly customize your riding experience

    -**The perfect addition to your Turbospoke!


    For the Turbospoke:*Vroom! Vroom! Turn a regular bicycle into a MEAN MACHINE! Tomax Turbospoke adds growl to any ride! SAVE BIG! Ever put cards in the spokes of your bike as a kid? The Turbospoke does one better. It uses specially designed replaceable cards that flick in the spokes of the bike. The sound is then channeled through the chrome acoustic chamber to create a GROWL people will notice. Of course, the Turbospoke isn't just for fun. It's also a valuable safety accessory.

    You're not the only one. On Friday's Dirt Shed Show someone piped up about a bike with a "backwards fork" as well....again, it was a Manitou. I don't think they made the reverse arch for too long.

    I remember when it came out via 2001 or thereabouts. The Black line was the first ones. It was never proven to be better than the traditional front arch so it was dropped after a few years. More of a fad really.

    Is that dried up masking tape that was holding it together? Or maybe just some cloth bandage?

    Whatever is thrown over the seat makes it look like a turkey, which would go well with the pig and milk tank, I guess.

    I'd propably pay $50 just to destroy it. We've got two morons that ride those on our MUP, one who thinks he's easyrider, the other thinks he winning at Laguna Seca, neither can read the words "No Motorized Vehicles." Both are on the "accidentally drop a stick in the front wheel" list. If I wanted to hear and smell chainsaw motors on my ride, I'd have brought my own.
    The most expensive bike in the world is still cheaper than the cheapest open heart surgery.
