    Have you seen this?

    Check this out.. here

    Great looking bike. What I don't get is how the disk brake is attached to a campy front hub. I like the wrech bolted to the water bottle mounts too.
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    sweet... and from the homeland, too!

    I wonder about the disk break. Always wanted one on my bike.

    Yeah I like that bike, is that fork fashioned for a disc brake or is that some sort of creative engineering going on?

    That wrench is so cool. Then it occurs to me, he's got to carry an allen wrench so that he can get to the hex wrench to use it. He could have had allen nuts on the rear wheel and saved a step.

    dude I'm gonna do that with the wrench holder thingie, thats cool. It looks like an old camp high flange hub and the disk just fits on the axel and is held w/ that fork bar attache thing.

    Just realized: I don't have any braze ons on my DeBernardi.

    Anybody have any other ideas for such a latch up for a wrench?

    now that's stopping power! I too liked the wrench placement. And thinking about it now...does he have his allen wrench attached to the bike with 15mm bolts?

    It actually makes a bit of sense to attach the crescent wrench that way, then you only have to grab a multi tool to fix anything on a normal ride. I know fitting the 15mm Craftsman box end wrench requires a larger saddle bag than most people carry. Good thinking, a little cumbersome when you do get a flat, but it's cumbersome anyway so what the hell.

    That disc begs the question -

    Why?

    I mean, you don't need the stopping power for one, and lucky he doesn't, because if he reefed on that front brake with too much force the fork would probably fold.

    As for the crescent wrench, that's a novel idea, but totally impractical. Infact, it's almost silly.

    Nice handlebars. They're not Nitto Moustaches, are they? They look a little different.

    Agreed on the disk break. But you know wtf.

    Thats not what I ever called a crescent wrench. It looks like a drilled out light weight box wrench. Crescent wrenches are adjustable aren't they? I like the wrench idea, definatly mostly on the cosmetic side but then those breaks are too...

    I think the wrench placement is a great idea. Now I wish I had had braze-ons.....NOT! Although if I did, I would look into mounting a wrench on the bike.

    the nut/bolt could be knurled so he can screw it on/off with his bare hands...

    brake setup looks neat and unique but definately unsafe... hello flex

    I cut the open end of my 15mm box wrench off, then wrapped in in electrical tape and stuck it in my seat bag. Fits perfect.

    practical can be fun.

    Take the flamethrower: I want to put fire over there, and quickly, yet without actually being there.

    I wouldn't do it, but you could use some kind of cam (like a QR skewer perhaps). You could just weld a bottle-boss-sized bolt onto the end of an axle you've cut short. Again, I think it's pretty goofy to bolt a wrench onto your bike, but it's an idea.
    Yeah, I'm still pretty.
