It's lame that I don't have a photo, but a while back I stumbled on a thread with some photos of bikes that were heavily modified, but instead of raking out and lengthening the forks, chopper style, the steering tube was raised up, so they were super tall in front, but not stretched out.

It seemed similar to Frisco style, but more of a sub-genre or alternate direction.

Anyone know what I'm talking about? I just can't remember what they were called, so I can't search for more photos of them.

Actually, I think that St. Louis style was closer to what I was thinking of. For fun I've been putting together a collection of all the genres and sub-genres of bike I can think of and that was definitely one I hadn't heard of before I started.

We've got lots and lots of de-raked bikes with stretched downtube frames here in the Pacific NorthWest...and have quite a long history of running them too. My own bike as well.

I've heard 'em called 'Grasshoppers'.


......so what's this St. Louis stuff????
