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!
Thanks for sharing
When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
That was very interesting.
