    So much going on here...

    Single speed... with a road rear derailleur tensioner!
    Zefal pump as rear shock
    Spare Zefal pump on chainstay
    USE (?) suspension seatpost -- what's strapped onto the seat tube?
    Softride suspension stem (quill mounted inside of threadless steerer?)
    Random placement of brake levers
    Cross tire up front, mtb tire out back -- mulletastic!
    Is there a 3D violet Cook Bros crank mounted on the other side too?

    That kinda looks like a ‘tongue in cheek’ build, by a bored shop mechanic trying to go viral on ‘the funny side to bike mechanics’ Facebook page.
    Taking the piss would be my guess, but hell, there are freaks out there...

    What have you bought/upgraded today.

    Try harder Rideit. Or maybe, less hard.

    Purple crank was added purely for aesthetics because its fucking purple ano. Rear brake line was too short, so we put it on a bar end on the left side so it would reach.
    Softride quill stem is indeed mounted in the steerer, atop the other stems.
    Friday night, 2 mechanics, 10 beers, 2-ish hours, and the bounty of the weird shit we have here at the Cyclery.

    Im just devastated by the use of a 7400 Dura Ace rear derailleur on that monstrosity. Surely there was a lesser piece laying around the shop

    Weve got a more than a handful of these in a drawer.
    No 7400 derailleurs were harmed in the making of this monstrosity

    Hey, I thought it was some random image on the internet...if I knew you built it, I would have left the comment alone.
    Nice work!
    Needs a N.O.S. Bassworm or a Rollamajig.
    And maybe some Powerstraps?

    Haha. I figured as much. I mean, it really was built to amuse bike dorks on the internet and it put our weird little shop on the map for a bunch of folks.
    Power straps on the Keo side would have been dope.

    Finally pulled the trigger on a new bike (that was shockingly in stock) - 2021 Stumpjumper Comp. Really looking forward to this season, rides super nice.

    Although that looks like a total hack, the concept is super intriguing. I'd never run dumb shit like this, but you can imagine it executed in a really cool futuristic form. Perfect for $10k urban ebikes, for example.

    Piece of art. Itd be great for any slow speed cruiser i think. Moto, E or regular bike. Not the quickest bearing change when its that time

    It'd be interesting to try a back to back test of the smashpot and the secus

    I would as well, but for me the smashpot is the only way to go as with my weight I cannot use the secus due to being over the allowed pressures in the 38. I really could not give a shit as I am a 250 pound monster hence the vanilla guerilla.

    Vanilla guerilla!! Thats good. I prefer coil shocks and forks just easier to swap the coils on r shocks. My last coil shocks were marz 380's and a 55 wc ti. Great feel especially the 55. Hoping the secus gets my 38 close to a coil

    First time in YEARS that I've even considered a non-FiveTen shoe. I'm sure it's not stiff enough or sticky enough for DH, but still ........ looks nice.
    Anyone have time in these kicks?

    My wife has a Patagonia Black Hole bag that I hate, so I went in the opposite direction. Lots of labeled pockets...

    What have you bought/upgraded today.

    Can you fit a Full Face and a pair of Impacts in there? I need a better bag situation for bike park weekends.

    Edit to add: I fucking love our 40L Black Hole Bags for clothes. Too small for gear though.

    This bag looks nice. I have the Dakine Boot Locker 69. I love the separate compartment for shoes/and dirty gear afterwards. (Also fits ski boots in winter)
    But I like the ideas of more divided compartments and the backpack straps.
    My Dakine bag transfers from ski gear/boot bag to Bike bag come April.
