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.
Road [racing] is one of the only sports where adult men can compete in a non-scholastic setting, so inevitably 8/10 racers are fiercely-competitive nobodies. It's fun as hell, but it's also the foremost refuge of defeated and aging jocks, turned middle-management types.
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
