Not a photographer in the bunch.Kristin

Do you guys believe everything you see? You thought the CC chick was a cyclist...and this gurl tall...and Ron ...well that anyone thought anything mystifies me. Nice to see art of photography still isn't dead. Mr. Cello will know what I mean.
Sad thing is, it doesn't even take a photographer.Spinchick

commenting tall girl + small bike = bikeshop salesjerk(possibly). Just have had too may friends lately who were told an "in stock bike" was just their size!! Photo came from ebay, girl indicating lbs sold her a bike too large(it looked kinda obivious from the pic I thought, even with the 2" spd platforms), but I don't have special insider info like you I assume??

The CC chick ..Cello ???

I was only looking at the ebay, long leg, caad5, chick, auction pic, where were you looking??

Everyone is ooh'ing and ahh'ing over how tall this girl is. This photograph utilizes a fairly simple visual effect. Cameraman stands up on something tall and shoots down at the subject with a wide angle lense. Subject holds bike away from body. Suddenly she looks 7 feet tall next too that 58 cm frame. I'm sure she's tall, but not that tall. Though, if a 58 cm frame is too small for her, she must be tall indeed. But in the end its not really not as much about bikes as it is legs.

My reference to MrCelloBoy was because he is a photographer and would have seen the visual effect more quickly than most.
actually she doesn'tcyclopathic

look at the wheels they would have been distorted. The picture looks like an amateur, made with cheap focus free camera. The guy who was making pic must be really tall and stands pretty close.

PS you're not jealous are you?
Of course I'm jealousKristin

My legs haven't looked like that for 15 years. That's a pretty good exposure for a disposable!!
