Boss Obree.

February 18, 2011

I can’t get enough of this bike. Everything has been considered in terms of making it as light as possible, look at it! It’s pretty darn ugly with it’s imperfections but in ways also quite beautiful.

I read that the aero bars attached to the front of this machine are completely custom and they took Obree himself three months to whittle down from a solid piece of aluminium. Now that’s what I am talking about. Simply brilliant.

Thanks Hardysan for the linkage.

Drillium – Put simply is the ‘art’ of drilling out your hardware to make it lighter ( Hardy and Alex take note ).

There are some great scans on the Tears for Gears blogsite of the do’s and dont’s of Drillium for those who would like to make their whip ‘as light as air’.

Tap the above link and go there for an interesting read… You know you can’t beat a scan or two!
