My love for the blacked out racing bike continues.

Donhou. Swan white.

June 10, 2011

Odin gave me a great mood board for his project and we worked closely on the paint firing plenty of drawings back and forth ’till we got it just right. Swan white with jet black interior panels. Big hi-5 as we’re both really stoked on it.

Built using oversized Reynolds 631 into a semi compact design and using a carbon fork to keep the weight down, this will be a fun little everyday bike.

Looking forward to meeting the man behind these frames tomorrow at the Bristol’s Bespoked… The countdown has begun!

Donhou.

Specialized McLaren Hotness.

March 19, 2011

Is this the most advanced bicycle in the world? Oh wait, this isn’t weightweenies.

Ok then, let’s just take a moment to breath it in… go ahead and peep the beauty and craftmanship of the pictured McLaren for Specialized ‘Venge’ bike.

It’s incredible, Non? Yep.

That is all.

Look Mondrian 2011.

Jesus Christ. Why have I not got ( read saved ) enough £££ for a 586 yet. *Drools on keyboard*. I need a slap in the face right now followed by some hard liquor. Shit.

F Moser Snaps.

November 19, 2010

A couple snaps I had laying about on my desktop that I thought I should show you.

I especially like the gentleman’s hand perched atop the saddle, it really puts into perspective the size of that rear wheel. HUGE!

Spinwell visits Reynolds.

October 19, 2010

Think of Reynolds and most will instantly think of 531, the tube of choice for racing bikes over countless years and not to mention the numerous tour wins that were gained aboard this cro-moly steel pipe. Since 1958 up until the modern day, the Reynolds butted tubeset has dominated the roads, Anquetil, Merckx, and Hinault all used Reynolds exclusively in their Tour victories. Now there’s an accolade.

I was recently lucky enough to be offered a bit of time to walk around the Reynolds factory and to have a quick chat with the MD about all things Reynolds and what came clear at my 45 minute mini tour was that Reynolds are still as passionate about the metal tube as they have always been. I may sound surprised at this but I really was, I honestly thought I’d be greeted by super high tech billion pound machines churning out carbon for motorbikes but what I actually saw looked like it hadn’t changed since Reynolds began in 1898.

Beauty in an Aero Colnago.

Colnago Crono Oro. Italy, 1992

Professional time trial bike from Colnago with carbon monocoque frame finished in clear coat and yellow. Equipped with Campagnolo C-Record Colnago C35 group, ITM Krono bar/stem, Selle Bassano Colnago saddle, Colnago disc wheels 700/650 rims, Vittoria tubular tires.

Seen at Speedbicycles, where you can also peep this 1945 Stucchi… just take a look at the craftmanship on the headtube. Talk about artisan.

Noir.

September 20, 2010

I have said it before but I’ll say it again. You simply cannot beat the look of a murdered out race bike. That’s perfection in Carbon right there.

New whip alert.

July 26, 2010

Got it this morning and after a few tweaks and minor adjustments I promptly stretched my limbs, donned my bib shorts and jersey and commenced to give it a damn good thrashing.

A good handful of miles later and all I can say is… Boy, it feels great to be back on a modern road bike. All hail compact gearing!

Testing Testing.

P3 Patent.

June 24, 2010

I love patent drawings. No matter how new the technology, they always manage to look about a million years old.

Lust.

April 29, 2010

Looks like Max at TFG has been busy. Busy tapping away into Ebay because he recently managed to snag this absolute stunner of a TT bike off of there. Just look at that rear mech… You gotta love a bit of drillium! Gosh, jealous I am.

Mo Cervelo.

I heart black bikes and especially black bikes that look like this.

Specialized Scan 1993.

The best looking spoked carbon wheel of them all.

AIS/RMIT Superbike Hotness.

April 15, 2010

The AIS/RMIT Olympic Superbike is an example of innovation in design and engineering. The opportunity to stretch the limits of bicycle design came in 1996, when the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) changed the rules governing bicycle design to less restrictive specifications. Through some unusual circumstances a project team was drawn from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) and the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS). The resulting bike, the Superbike, allowed many top athletes to break world records.

Spotted.

Straight outta Burntwood.

March 30, 2010

This is my pal Simon’s most recent build and I think you’ll agree that it’s a fine one. Simon, what’s the deal with your next level penchant for TT/Pusuit bikes man!? What’s this one, number four? five?

Spot more here.

Hench!

Colnago 1988.

March 22, 2010

This is the Colnago Carbon Volo from 1988. Yes 1988. Amazing technology for the time me thinks.

Seen.
