My new favorite bike photo.

That’s a nice contrast to fat man with little feet. Also, Andrew I think was that low at the Kirkland crit, right before the crash.
@Byron - I didn’t slide out - I went over the bars riding into a guy who piled into the barrier :)
Was he as low as our old-timey, goggle-wearing broham? Technically, I think that’s as low as you can go.
I just looked at this picture more carefully, and I can’t see any handbrakes. So this guy is either:
a) Laying it down that low on a fixie
b) Traveling at a very high speed with no brakes
Either way, my conclusion is: Bad Ass
That’s as bad-ass as [these dudes](http://www.sonic.net/~ckelly/Seekay/ck_repack_76.jpg). Not as low, cause technically, our goggled friend in the fisherman’s sweater is as Low as you can Go.
There is more info on this picture at the Queensland Digital Library:
