Those are nuts! I've never seen them before.

FYI: I do know that there are photo threads in most subforums, but perhaps people will post some here, regardless of subdivision. That was the original intent. Also, most of those threads have thousands of posts, and that is overwhelming.

Been riding Zipp2001's since 1993, even today at 19 years old they still get lots of looks. The one in the photo unassembled is now completely assembled, and the black one has no decals and is in stealth mode now. I will be turning it into a belt driven fixie for my son this winter.

Lucky son! What is the appeal with the Zipp2001's? They interest me...

I fell in love with the look when I first saw it. At the time many moons ago I was able to get my sponsor to buy one for me. I have used them in time trails before they got baned, ultra marathon cycling events. Once you throw your leg over one you just want to rip it, They were daily rides for many years, now I pull one out once a week.

Cool! My first good bike was a '70 UO8 bought from a friend who got me into bikes. He had just boght a top-line full Campy Motobecan.

Two years later I was on a new PX10LE. Then in another two years I had bought a Schwinn Volare w/ full Dura Ace. I rode that for 25+ years and then sold it to buy mountain bikes for my kids.

Kids are grown and now this is my new ride:


2010 Roubaix Expert with upgrades. Love it!

Rivendell bicycles are pretty dang gorgeous to start with but their owners often set them up in ways that multiply their beauty:












Finally, I think the Rando bikes are some of the best looking out there:
