Steve Bauer's "stealth bike"

Steve designed this custom Eddy Merckx himself. My buddies thought I was crazy when I described the drastic seat tube and head tube angles of this machine. I finally found a photograph of Steve racing this funky rig in the 93' Paris Roubaix. Check out the clearance in the rear triangle. They had to add almost 10 links of chain. For the record, Gilbert duclus- Lassalle won that year (using a rockshock) and Steve was 22nd.
