back in time

I was thinking how fast a racer from bitd would be with today's technology. What we know now about bike frame geometry for better stability and speed. If you could take a bike into the past and give it to a rider, race or freestyle, what bike would you take and who would you give it to?

Re: back in time

I'd probably give a Fit Wifi to either Butcher or Taj as both had great street style and being the wifi has that steep headtube and very short rearend would be awesome to see them ride. So many crazy tricks probably would have been done and street while still in a level of its own now will probably be even more crazier but just my 2 cents.

Better, what would have made them better? What advances are there today, that make bikes different?
