check out the seatpost and aerobar setup on this bike, I normally dont give a crap about things like that, this is over the edge IMHO

I believe this is the worst set up bike I've ever seen. That thing is for a midget with 3 foot stilts.

That Giant aero seatpost isn't intended for traditional frames, it's too high. But this guy either didn't know that or just wanted it so badly (b/c it looks cool) that he didn't care. So he stuck it on, but that made his bars and aerobars too low. So instead of going back to a traditional frame seatpost, he extended the steerer tube height with some jerry rig I've never seen or heard of before. I'm looking at the supersized pic of his stem area, but still am not sure what he did there. Anyway, there's some faulty logic going on here...

maybe he screwed up when fitting the bike and got several sizes too small, and then tried to make up for it with a longer seat post.

Or maybe he has unusually long legs.

Hell, I don't know. He should've posted a pick of himself riding the bike too, just so we'd know it's possible for somebody to ride that thing.

Isn't that a quill/threadless adapter?
