    bauhaus build

    so i'm thinkin' of making this IRO group buy frame coming my way completely bauhaus inspired. yeah pretty dumb, but what else you gonna do? so here what im thinking so far:

    black IRO frame
    white deep Vs to dura ace hubs (for some reason that black center of the hubs looks sooo minimal)
    sella italia white slr
    campy record pista stem and headset (both have black inserts to match the hubs)
    all cranks these days look equally simple so sugi or campy or shimano or whatever
    black stem (thomson?)
    black straight bars or riser or soma noah's arc
    white oury grips or black oury lock on grips

    anyway im trying to find the most simple FUNCTIONAL bike. things like holes in hubs seem less simple, bars without grips aren't too practical IMO.

    am i an idiot? any suggestions?

    I Double Dare you to build that; it could be a real Kick in the Eye if you do it right.

    Well yeah, especially if he's going riding in the Hollow Hills. I wouldn't want to be accused of being the Sanity Assassin for not suggesting a light.

    I apologize, we've gotten away from the Spirit of the thread, it must have gotten on the Nerves of the original poster. Smalltalk Stinks. I think astrx should use a Mask to put some subtle graphics on the frame

    I have a feeling that would leave your hands looking like a Rosegarden Funeral of Sores

    I guess we now know Who Killed Mr. Moonlight.

    It's funny, though I heard he was stung by a Wasp
