Black tour bikes.

My love for the blacked out racing bike continues.

Trek Speed Concept.

May 28, 2010

I spotted this Trek, this morning and after reading some Trek written spiel it’s advantages I promptly gave up reading anymore. It was all a little bit too much “wind tunnel” talk for me. I then saw this great comment on Bike radar from one Mr Igamogam, which read:

Personally, I think the UCI should take a new tack and abandon the TT bike. All the recent efforts to make bikes more “marketable and rideadable” are silly if you continue to allow TT specific bikes. To ordinary cyclists the development of TT bikes has reached a stage where there is very little useful benefit. The whole concept of the specialised TT rig encourages a technological arms race which is to say the least a little bizarre. It’s no longer about the rider but the bike…

If riders had to ride their normal RR bikes with no aero helmets or tri-bars it would make very little difference to who would win the TTs (it would still be the best “testers” – but slower times) but at least the machines would have some similarity to normal bikes.

The setting of the “athlete”s record for the hour was an opportunity to mark a return to normal bikes for TTs but it was frittered away by the UCI. Perhaps it’s time to step back and let riders race on bikes not cut down formula one cars?

Such a great point.

Hello Mr. Wilson,
My name is Joseph Halbert, and I am an intern at LIVESTRONG headquarters in Austin, Texas. We are interested in learning more about your LambStrong shirts, as they seem to have become an internet phenomenon. In particular, we are interested in their origin and purpose. Any information you can provide would be helpful and appreciated.

Hilarious and controversial, I love it.

Read more about this internet phenomenon here, here and here. For lovers and for haters of Lance this is seriously worth a read, actually probably more for haters. Not haters as in the American term of haters but more like real hatred. Gosh, enough rambling already dude, damn.

Project One.

Not sure if anyone knows this but if you fancy designing your ultimate road machine with colours and gruppos and everything head on over to Trek’s Project One and flip a Madone to your heart’s content.

That one up there is my effort… all $9000 worth!

If you are bored at work ( Hardy ) seriously get involved… there is hours of fun to be had.

Clock This.

July 21, 2009

This has got to be the coolest thing for city cyclists right now, the Trek Time Watch.

No buttons, no wires, no speedo, no nothing… just a simple analogue clock for your bike. Genius.

Approx £15 from here.

Not too much info on this as yet but what I do know is that Lance will be riding this bike on the final stage of Le Tour on the 26th on July and guess what else? I will be right there to see it.

Best believe my ass is going to Paris for the final stage!
