The Eddy files.

July 17, 2011

I have never seen such a massive collection of Eddy Merckx photographs and scans in one place, the grip is something else… There’s even a bunch of family photos up in there!

Unfortunately the owner has disabled the ability to download the files so I can’t show them here (screenshots come in handy mind you) but do yourself a favour and click through for 600% of Merckx goodness.

Legends of TT in Photographs.

November 25, 2010

So, I have not long gotten my grubby mitts on the TT frame I have been seeking for a good few months, and while hunting around this massive web of goodness, for inspiration on a somewhat ‘period correct’ build, I came across this super and smashing forum thread of pure appreciation for the golden era of British Time Trialling.

As many black and white and colour photograph scans that one could ever wish for. Seriously, page after page of sloping top tubes, drilled out brake levers, skin suits, 24″ front wheels, the lot.

A big thanks to all the contributors of said thread, your photographs are nothing short of amazing!

Found.

Dream Team.

November 10, 2010

Our friend and artist Riccardo Guasco just sent us some samples of his latest work titled, “The Dream Team” of cyclists. Beautifully captured characters, and you have to love that mustache. See more of the illustrations here in Riccardo’ s gallery.

Via Elcyclista who also wrote the above words and yes, quite a magnificent moustache… just wait until I reveal mine. EEK!
