yes i wanted to cry.
yes i wanted to cry.
god damnit! did you at least leave a note stating interest in the bike!? that needs to be saved before anything more awful happens to it.
I wanted to but i didn't have anything but my gym stuff on me
I don't see the problem here. We've all seen this before. Let it go.
1 Super Record bike, 1 Nuovo Record bike, 1 Pista, 1 Road, 1 Cyclocross/Allrounder, 1 MTB, 1 Touring, 1 Fixed gear
The only thing wrong here, is somebody with a bicycle going to a gym.
Also, I can't give the owner of the photographed bike any grief. Here's mine:
Can I ask... is it the fact he has converted any bike to a fixie that causes such pain?
Or it there something about the frame and manufacturer that is the problem?
It is an honest question. I am not really gen'ed up regarding the more exotic brands.
I think the key issue is that Ciöcc himself has often expressed a dislike for white chains.
looks like it gets loved and ridden, whats there to cry about? o wait, maybe you are making an assumption about the type of person that is riding it and this is what is bothering you?
would you make an assumption about this bike too?
what would you assume, that the owner is a 'hipster ******' or an actual track rider? or both?
i would assume you are jealous you didnt find that ciocc on CL before you saw it locked outside your gym first...
these threads are tired.
bike. throw. #MFDCR
^that is so awesome. I wish I could find an old-school disc like that.
1997 Vitali track, 1986 Cilo Swiss road, 2006 KHS Flite 100, 2009 top-secret track bike.
91mf, agreed these threads don't do much for me either. Who knows why I read through them, but that's not why I posted. Is that your Ciocc w/ the disc? It rocks, and I am looking for a disc for my oldest son's Pinarello Pista he just traded for at a local cyclocross race a couple of weeks ago.
I don't like the cowhorn bars, threadless stem, aero wheels, skinny seat, black chainring and white chain, but otherwise I'm OK with it. The pedals look nice.
It's an old frame that's still on the road. I don't see a problem. Ciocc made some decent frames but their tools, not art.
1989 Schwinn Paramount OS
1980 Mclean/Silk Hope Sport Touring
1983 Bianchi pista
1976 Fuji Feather track
1979 raleigh track

I don't have any problems with fixed gear conversions where the frame isn't modified. I am annoyed by conversions that involve hacksaws, but it's the owner's property and it really isn't my business. I will ridicule people who hacksaw vintage frames, particularly if their motive is to flip the bike. I saw a really nice looking Raleigh fixed gear in the bike rack at school the other day. I'm sure there is some collector out there that would love to have that frame.
