    Well...

    There are a couple bikes I liked.

    I like one out of 10 or so on Bike Exif.
    Maybe one out of 5 on Pipeburn.

    Most custom builds make me think of the the story "The Emperor's New Clothes" because I sure don't see any beauty in them.

    Obviously I have no class. :cry

    There really wasn't too much that made me go "wow" from that offering. That's not to say that there isn't any talent that went into the work, just kinda wondering what they were envisioning when they started on the projects. But, to each his/her own.

    Me too, I find myself looking for details that I like and ignoring the concept that I don't. But I've never been a form over function guy, too much farmer in my background I guess.

    Good ground clearance, but his knees are too close to his face. With bars that low, standing would be a challenge too. Nice to look at, but boring compromises that the original engineers make really do seem to work well.

    In the olden days most used to sit down through all but the worst, in bad conditions just lifting your bum off the seat seemed to help. That was for motocross or endure type events. Any of the older pommie/Spanish/Jap bikes were made to ride sitting down NOT standing up. These days unless you have 12" risers so you can ride everywhere standing up your not not with the trendy crowd. :D
