Yeah, he ain't gonna have no hotdog once his frame snaps and his junk gets crammed into the gap between tyre and seat tube. I can see the newspaper headline now... "Cycle commuter loses dignity, testicles".

We all push the limits in different ways:
Here is a singlespeed solely dependent on a drilled front brake lever on a drilled GB stem, with drilled crank arms and rims. Eek!

The chainwheel has got off lightly which is a pity, that is the only bit I would have drilled.
And maybe a wee hole in the front of the stem, but not half as big a hole as SR used to make at the factory in their own stem in the early 80s to achieve 210g for 110 length x 135 depth.

I like the paint job, skulls are cool.

Since losing a tooth and being forced to adopt a pirate accent appropriate to my new appearance I am finding skulls and suchlike very appealing. It is like one of those tales where someone gets a heart transplant and finds the donor's personality comes with it except I had a gap transplant.

Skulls repel cars! A bike safety flag converted to a Jolly Roger is the obvious solution for those tricky laned intersections.

Pirates obviously wouldn't use STI so I have to do downtube shifting with one hand whilst brandishing a cutlass above my head with the other. It is a bit tricky, maybe stem shifters or fixed wheel would be better for a fighting vessel.

Actually I don't own a cutlass yet so have to wear a frame pump thrust into my belt instead. It is a mighty bludgeon to strike fear in the chicken hearts of urban scum in shiny Suburban Attack Vehicles. Avast ye dog loving knaves, have a taste of the steel Turbo Morph! :satan:
