Ahead spacers above the stem?
Say it ain't so Ernesto, say it ain't so.

I'm not angry, just disappointed.

A quick couple of minutes with an allen key and it'll be reet. Might even fit me then, too. Wrap it up...

Ooh yes, and if that girl on the front has her foot on a quick release there are going to be problems…

not to mention the rear two bikes have their chainsets on the wrong side, although i think they run them on the left side on the continent, to fall in line with the driving

yes it did make me wonder ... wiki says left sided chainsets exist but its the first time i've seen one ... either its some vintage french cycle or a bad bit of photoshopping?!

Photos reversed - if you go into the Lacoste site and look at sportswear pages, they all seem to be right way round.

The giveaway on homepage is buttons being on the wrong side on the guy's cardigan Nerd

Lacoste - an example of the real world being ignored/twisted in the quest for 'cool', just to sell overpriced clothes. Some things never change....
Yawn
