    serious bike porn.

    the bikes don't really look like they changed much for four decades, from the late '40s until the early '90s.

    there's a '30 for 30' doc airing on espn tomorrow (tues) on lemond and the '86 race, called 'slaying the badger.' set your dvr.

    i also recently caught another doc on cable, called 'the armstrong lie.' pretty fascinating.

    That is an incredible history. This thing is crazy look how relaxed it is.



    I think they have the wrong bike or at least the wrong paint and decals for Moreno Argentin

    Thanks for the ride through the TdF Time Machine, fietsbob!

    It's cool to see the evolution of many designs in these photos, such as handlebars, shifting systems, etc.

    The early bikes were quite a bit more relaxed than their more modern counterparts!

    When I saw that picture, I noticed the seemingly more relaxed than normal angles too. The bicycle was from 1914, so I'm guessing it's possible that it could very well have been a TdF winner.
