Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

no real comment on the individual bikes, but the set up is hot. That is sick.

Personally, I'd avoid the hassle of drilling into the floor and ceiling.


not my best craftsmanship, but it gets the job done.

They are from eBay for $50 shipped. They just push against the floor and ceiling and hold in place by friction and are very secure if set up correctly.

Where can I get the TT mounts/holders?
I have a few of these poles for work, but have been tempted to diy something up when they're not in use.

There is no formal weight limit, but larger sizes will flex, this frame is a medium (54cm TT) and given it's a compact frame is pretty stiff

If I'm not mistaken, they're not drilled - they clamp in place with pressure.

Dude - you've got unadorned dimensional lumber in what appears to be your dining room and you're proposing it as a superior solution?

What you are missing is that those are oil paintings of bikes, and the wood is the easel. It is absolutely brilliant.

I'm pretty sure Ted Kaczynski would have approved...

ummm...he already said it was a medium...

these babies are no longer in production of course, but they were indeed spec'd without rider weight limits...there's plenty of history on the interwebs on the pros and cons of this ultra light thin wall ti frameset. regardless...it's HOT as far as I'm concerned

The Reynolds UL is a 300gr fork and then the steerer was cut to 200mm, reducing the weight even more.

The ENVE 1.0 is the current equivalent or you could go lighter with the THM Scapula SP.
