Those are just Enve bars. They come with those bar ends built in.
I've got them on my track bike in Switzerland - they're 3T Sphinx bars. Ugly as sin, but really good to use on track, as they give a range of extra hand positions.
I see, I thought you could spread the hate and put them in any old bars.
This may be a repost, but there are some truly hideous bikes on here
And here was me thinking old Caads never looked bad
On ebay for 570 of your own pounds.
Too minimal for me, really
Clearly 'designed' for or by a triathlenger, therefore not a bicycle. Hideous, nonetheless.
There were some good posts a while back about first builds. This was my premiere, circa 2009... where do you start? Antique saddle at a very questionable angle, gold half-link, sacrificial Peugeot road frame, original crankset hand-painted with Hammerite...
If the seat angle and lever placement were fixed it would have flown under most people's anti-radar.
looks like a wheeler from return to OZ
Apparently it's 'lightweight'. At over 13kgs.
It's so lightweight it needs two people to keep it upright.
The two hands are actually great, now I wait for a picture with 3 hands.
They belong to the same, really big, guy.
It's a technology demonstrator. People use bicycles as demo objects because you can create a fully functioning one quickly and cheaply, and it's not likely to kill anybody when you drive it. It's not "Dear Giant, here's how you should make bikes", it's "Dear Spaceship/Remotely Operated Submersible/Race Car maker, if I can make a bicycle, imagine what I can do for you"
It's more the build tbh. Saint chainset, cheap brown chain (slack), short uprise stem (MTB?), no brakes or pedal retention, saddle angle etc....
Also its ugly
It's more the build
It's more the build
I expect it was built with whatever they could scrape up from the parts bin. It only has to roll without breaking or crashing to prove their point. Yes, it's ugly as sin and badly put together and a bad design, but to be anti- it first has to be an attempt to make a nice bicycle, and I'm pretty sure that was never their intention.
fairly certain there is no "saddle retention" either
Is it cast in concrete?
This is one of those truly special additions to this thread - seemingly fine at first glance; truly awful on closer inspection.
Oh Christ that's rotten...
