    Insidious effect of viewing bike porn

    All the manufacturers use marketing photos of bikes with small frames because they look good; the wheels look proportionately larger and the line of the top tubes slope down and seamlessly blend into the angle of the seat stays which looks racy.

    The effect of this is a plague of too-small bikes sold with too-long seat posts.

    the sloping top tube and geometry of most new frames makes the seat post look long.. companies realized its kinda stupid to make a 19 inch bike with a 21 inch top tube.. now instead you get a 16 inch bike with a 22 inch top tube that actually handles well.

    aesthetically, i think new bikes are drastically nicer! functionally, they really are hands down better.

    Bike porn is bad.
    It makes one want to sell his kidney.
    It's like dangling a Big Mac in front of an Ethiopian.
