Yep, according to Google Translate it's because of a triple neck hernia.

I have a friend who stacks his Roubaix almost as tall. Neck issues there too.

On the one hand anyone who's spent a career in contact sports can ride whatever position they need to IMO, on the other there are probably more appropriate frames and safer ways of doing it than that.

That's a strida folding bike, they are actually considered some of the best folding bikes. Light easy and quick to fold in comparison.

The only time I read a review of a strida the reviewer said it was awful to ride.

I was looking at getting myself a foldable for commuting, because you're not allowed to take proper bikes onto the trams. All the comments I read about were very positive. It's definitely not a bike for bike backing trips though.

@nooski nice bike, except for the stem choice and the housing mess. Why do you think it fits the thread?

I get what you mean but somehow it's the combo of everything.The Bikeaheads make anything look dated IMO, the old junction box is confusing, the angle of the photo doesn't help and the spacer stack is just that bit too high even for an adventure bike. Unless that's the biggest frame they do, wouldn't a bigger one have been better?

But you're right it doesn't belong here. It's not quite to my taste but it's a legit build for a chosen purpose. Not a freak.
