That is amazing! I bet those pedals are to small too.....

It must be like riding a little 10' wheeled bike for a him....all little controls.

The pick of the other guy and him is kinda funny. One I would keep if I was Mr. "seat hieght adjuster" :)

the photo is a little oblong due to the size lens the photographer used but i'm 5'8" and the seat came up to my chest like the guy in the photo.
there's enough steel on there to fabricate a '57 chevy.

I know back when Shaq first broke into teh NBA, Cannondale Fabbreicated a Custom road bike for him, it had a 74 CM frame! I remeber reading the article , regular Shift brake cables were not long enough they had to use Cables for a Tandem Bike and it was using 40 Spoke ( touring ) wheels.

sweet f'ing jeebus

that dude has got to be at least 80 lbs heavier than me and my 29'r goes scary fast on even small downs, i can't fathom the momentum he'd carry on a 29'r :eek:
You haven't been to Houston have you? The only 'hills' they have are overpasses.

That picture is a little old but it always brings a chuckle to me. I dont think he needs 8" rotors, I think big 10" rotors would suit him better.

Looks flexy...

Actually it reminds me of Shaq's chopper. The guy from WCC sat on it in the build and could barely reach the bars.

In Connecticut, Donny Marshall wanted a mountain bike. I suggested to my boss we get him a 29 incher, but he shot my suggestion down.

Donny was only 6'7". It would have be a good fit for him.

I remember that. Jesse James looked like a little kid on that thing.
