Ben Bikin — get it?!? — would go much faster on a Raleigh Record Ace, but the 32-foot-tall statue in the self-proclaimed Bicycling Capital of America prefers his old-school high wheel. Big Ben, who must be pissed at what Ben Roethlisberger has done to his good name, has become such an iconic figure in Sparta that a mustachioed goon in yellow pants fan now parades around town passing himself off as “Little Big Ben.”
