a small illustration of the stupidity and inanity of Complex

let's ignore the fact that they are highlighting track bikes in their Style Guide A-Z (we don't need more idiotic style outlets heaping on this bandwagon), or that it's a picture of a guy on the BQE holding onto the spoiler of a Lotus. but you'd figure that if you were trying to highlight a trend, that you'd actually be aware of what are the main components (as it were) of that trend. as will be obvious to even the most casual bike rider, this bike is certainly not a track bike.

if you weren't aware of the fact that Complex simply co-opts and highlights style trends of which they are often completely clueless, then here's simply one example.
