Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Check out justrideit.com.au and go to the gallery tab, and there are some pretty nice modern fixies.

I was being facetious. It was a joke.

I do like it that I now have the Pantone colors for the M logo. Probably one of the best trios of colors I've ever seen in design. I should find a clever way to use it.

Also... According to your rather informative link, the M trio is half 'Merica as the red (an awesome red, by the way) is for Texaco, which is an American Oil Company and the purple is a blend between the BMW Blue and Texaco Red as a way of transitioning the two colors. So, technically, I was half-right.

Although, I was being facetious and was unknowingly half-right. Which makes me like 1/4 right. Or possibly less. Smaller fractions than 1/4 sort of just get lost on me. I was an art major. Math is lost on me.

The white is misleading.

...and so is that bike..

personally, I wouldn't qualify it as "bike porn"
-platforms with no toe clips/straps
-no brakes to compensate...
-and the wheels?.. uh... nope..

i'd take that car any day

Is it just me, or does this bike frame look like it was extruded out of some alien metal? Those welds!!!

I've never seen Bondo applied like that! It almost makes the bike look "sticky" or something. Like taffy. It's weird.

Alloy frame. I love how insanely smooth the welds are!

Or somebody forked over the same/ more than they did for the frameset itself for the anodizing job? (such an anodizing finish is pretty popular in automotive and costs mad $)

When touring, that spot is traditionally reserved for carrying stove fuel. in case it leaks, i guess.


But you are probably just trolling us.

It's porn for sure, and for sale, by Hampston. I saw it @ the hand built show in Denver. It is all of that. I'm not sure what was more fun, talking to Andy, or drooling over his bikes!

You can own these: 1984 de Rosa Campagnolo Road and Track Framesets | eBay



Was originally going to post it in the craigslist/ebay thread but AFIAC this is pr0n, and I may be crazy for thinking it - not such a bad price either, considering...
