at a light, plenty of traffic, and a crosswind. Imagine the look on the Drivers face whose car is next to him.

Some guy in SF has welded two frames together andsprocket rocket

he has a saddle height of seven feet or so and when riding his head was a good ten feet off the ground when riding this thing. Scared the crap out of me just looking at him way up there. He also was wearing a red cap with devil horns. I saw him only once and honest to God he could look into second story windows. I could not get a good look at him (he was a few cars ahead of me) but he actually was going downhill at a pretty good clip.

Anyone heard of this guy or was my medication not kicking in that day?
I might have seen the same guy a couple ...cyclinseth

years back when I lived in Seattle. It was the strangest thing I've ever seen. I didn't understand how he mounted the bike. It looked like he welded two frames one on top of the other. Truely bizarre.
