Concorde Squadra team PDM, Netherlands, 1989.
Professional PDM (1986 – 1992) team bike from Concorde (made by Ciocc or Billato, Italy) with Columbus TSX framework #99047 finished in PDM team colours. Equipped with Campagnolo C-Record 7-speed Delta group in Century finish. Cinelli bar/stem, Campagnolo Omega Strada clincher rims.
The rims, the rims! Seen.
Bolstering my love of Concorde to the fullest.

My last two posts have been a little negative folks don’t you think?
Maybe it has something to do with being back from my holidays, I don’t know?
It got me thinking though, about what I always say about things people hate on, or diss. “There would be no good without bad”.
So from one post about something I dislike to a post about something I absolutely love.
Old pictures of something I am interested in. Bicycles, amongst others.
A nice link sent to me via Fin ( one of Birmingham’s two fine cycle couriers ) of a track bike from 1979, designed by Panyn and Vorontsov,
for individual and team pursuit competition in the 1980 Moscow Olympic Games.
That looks remarkably like this ( my all time favourite Raleigh ) :
And it also shares it’s name with this.
The recently released Ciocc ‘Mockba 80’ pista… ‘Mockba 80’ meaning ‘Moscow 80’ surely?
Apart from the stem this ‘off the peg’ looks amazing and apparently you can grip one of these now from selected stores in America for $999.
Will it ever hit our shores, who knows?
This is one of the illest bikes i have ever seen.
Found on Pedal Mafia Bike Check.
This killer Ciocc is owned by Garrett of M.A.S.H SF fame,
for those who do not know of M.A.S.H here is a clip of their 2007 movie…
And here is a great article / interview from Sahtel of Garrett and Jonathan Burkett both from the M.A.S.H crew which features an awful lot of words but also some amazing photographs and a behind the scenes peek at the making of the movie.
