The photo is reversed? Nice Colnago.

BTW, that looks like Mike Giant Cinelli bar tape on the bike with the green fork (behind the guy with the USC hat).

Try watching The Big Short. It's a dramatic role for him and he plays a sourpuss, but for a good reason, and it's a damn good movie besides.

I never cared much for his work either, but his performance in The Big Short was great. He reminded me of Joe Pesci actually, in making such a bizarre character entirely real.

Fellow Trojan—there are a few of us here. Where is the bike shop and is it really Mike Giant Cinelli bar tape on that bike?

Admittedly I had to Google that though. Much before my birth, I've only seen it in a documentary.

I wasn't sure where to put this. Do we have a 'bike pumps as guns' thread? Killers on bikes? I finally watched that Munich movie from 2005 and there is a scene where three of the Israeli Agents are going to avenge one of their own taking out by a gunwoman for hire. As three roll up to her boat hose Daniel Craig's character snaps his pump off his bike as do the other the two, although unseen.

Eric Bana and Hanns Zischler


Eric Bana and Daniel Craig arming their pump guns. Single shot, apparently you hold the barrel of the pump which is the gun barrel and give the handle a smart tap to fire the cartridge. Does Zefal still make these?
