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.

De Rosa TT Hotness.

May 20, 2010

DeRosa professional time trial bike: Columbus steel tubes, TIG welded for low weight and maximum stability, aerodynamic geometry and design, short headtube for a more aerodynamic body position. Hidden cable routing for the lowest possible air drag. Matching extra-light steel fork included. Made for a professional cycling team in 1997.

It’s suddenly all about Silva bartape.
New in at MatuzMaster Hungary.

Lust.

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.

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?

That is going to be some serious saddle to bar drop, talk about aerodynamics!

Mo TT Hotness.

My love for TT bikes continues.

Cycle Sports.

January 29, 2010

Taken from the book entitled ‘Cycling and cycle sports’ by DK publications.

Quite an interesting book for the novice and also a lot of amusing pictures of what appear to be 80s cyclists too. Look out for the triathlete… Wow is all I am saying!

Giro 91.

Posted a link to these pics last week from the brilliant La Gazzetta della Bici but the link alone did them no justice so here I include a few more pics for you.

See more.

Oh my god this Colnago is ridonkulous!

I am now totally warming to the idea of a TT bike for my collection ( after a chat with the wife of course ) and moreover I am warming to the idea of bull bars for my pursuit bike. Riser bars in my opinion ( comfortable as they are ) are beginning to look a tad out of place.

TT Hotness.

Steel is real smashing it again with his Biddle TT bike complete with full NOS Suntour Superbe group. Hot!

Mo Rafael.

December 7, 2009

Rafael editions – Airbus, Barcelona and Frankfurt.

Inspired by their respective object / cities my favourite looking has to be the Frankfurt edition followed closely by Barcelona. I am loving the Gaudi inspired paintwork here which you can see all over the wonderful city of Barca.

14 Killing it…

December 7, 2009

… With this.

What an absolute pearl of a bicycle and made out of custom drawn aero ( Christ I have used that word a few times today havn’t I? ) steel tubing too. Damn!


This frame was initially an experiment to see how far we could push the boundaries and capabilities of 14 Bike Co’s resources. Andy at FGLDN based the concept on a couple of frames he had owned in the past. This is a frame that is all about the details…

R-011.

December 7, 2009


This is the beast known as the Rafael r-011. The detail that get’s me is the aero bottle at the front of the bicycle… That is a great concept right there.

Read more about the r-o11 at Bicycle Design.

Transformation.

November 24, 2009

Wow this is pretty dope.

So as I understand it the owner of this Rossin snapped the seat tube of said frame ( twice! ) and then proceeded to hand it over to his friend / framebuilder for a repair. A couple of track ends and a re-jig later and he now has a super nice Rossin pursuit complete with crimped aero tubing.

This is going to look great when painted for sure.

Seen.

Wow.

Just wow.

Is it me or does this look a bit strange… I mean, like what size will the front wheel be?

We know many of you have been ripping apart the internets looking for this frame.

Some of you wanted it so bad you got builders to make it for you.

It’s been since 2004 that we’ve been real life testing this frame, a head on collision with a car, winters, hundreds of drop offs and pick ups, pot holes, bike polo, multiple cities, tens of alleycats and Cycle Messenger Championships all around the world.

And, they all survived. 5 years of testing gave us a lot of time for perfecting the design.

Which we did, new drop outs, new geometry, and a few other goodies.

So we feel they are ready to take the title of the strongest work bikes in the world.
Finally, a Track Frame designed to survive in the concrete maze.

Liking the look of these frames and the first 15 orders get one at a special price too.
