The Maglia Rosa

I thought some of you might be curious as to what this infamous derailleur looked like installed. Yes, it is in fact a sex toy, it just happens to change gears as well. Sorry for the pic, I need a new camera.

I've always wondered how one of those would look on a bike. I've never seen one in the wild.

It's too bad my camera is malfunctioning, this is the only picture that wasn't a big blur. The derailleur actually looks a lot cooler in real life, although everyone and his brother seems to have a lewd joke ready when they see it.

Actually, this variant of the Mistral doesn't look too bad on some of those late 1890's, Miami Vice influenced bicycles with the pastel colors. I certainly prefer the Maglia Rosa variant over the Maillot Jaune version, though the basic black is the best of them all.

Edit: Of course, I meant 1980's, not 1890's. MiamiJim's thread on that 1890's Peugeot is obviously working on my subconscious mind.

Basic Black!?! They're alright but it's the coloured ones I'm after. Just like Pokemon, I gotta catch 'em all.

P.S. if anyone has a line on the matching pink shift levers I would definitely be interested!
