I used to get the drillium aesthetic, but don't get it any more. The guy that did that, I don't think he ever got it.

Put down the drill, and slowly back away from the work bench, keeping your hands where we can see them..........

Having snapped a stock Sugino Mighty Compe crank across the pedal eye while climbing a 7 percent grade, I say "no thanks." Drilled shift levers and derailleurs are one thing (and SO last-century), but I draw the line at drilled weight- or stress-bearing parts, such as cranks.

If I was into wall hangers, I think something like that would look cool on a nice frame. But since I'm not, I would break everything there.

I am not opposed to drilling in general, but when the structural integrity is threatened, then it has no appeal even as a wall hanger. Even wall hangers have to be functional either in the past or present for them to hold their beauty.

The above examples is like shooting them with a shotgun, totally killed the parts.

I think it's interesting that the drillium parts are being sold along with some very functional parts (Modolo brakes and a chain... not sure about the Ofmega derailleurs). This implies that they all came off of the same bike. It had to be a wall hanger, right??

While I'd never ride these drilled parts, I can't help but wonder if someone did... and how much did they whistle in the wind.

All that work and forgot to drill the dust caps.

In general I'm not a fan of drillum, but I find that visually appealing. No way in hell I would ride (or buy) that though.

Indeed, the bike these parts went onto was never intended to be ridden. It was built up for a show. Here's the last line of the article at the link:

The bike was a hit at Interbike and is on its way back to Brooklyn right now. Once its back, Ill take it out and shoot it. So stoked on this. Congrats to all parties involved! Its a shame that you cant actually ride it now

At least the seller isn't asking $10,000 - because it's rare/1 of a kind?

Undrilled Modolo mini group is worth $250.

nice article!

For putting so much work into building a weight weenie bike, how did they not publish the final weight?

and why did they put Pasela Tour Guard tires on it?? (at least that's what the tire labels seem to indicate in one of the photos). Not exactly the lightest tire around. Seems like they could at least have thrown some nice tubulars on the bike.

Granted, for a bike show, it's all about the looks and not the actual weight. That extreme drillium work must have really drawn a crowd!

What is the sheet metal screw doing in the front DR mounting hole?
With all my 100 watts of power I would snap that crank right in half.!

I suspect all that drilling didn't reduce a lot of weight.

Just imagine the weight savings, if they had bothered to drill the rims. Especially those overrated braking surfaces.

I recall seeing something similar a couple years ago. Too many holes in both cases for me, however, at least the drillings look well thought-out and proportional.

Since drillium seems to be more about individualizing common bike parts, I'm always for it, wall-hanger or not, if it's done well.
