Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them.

I've used the Nashbar copies. No pics available as I tore that bike down to build up a new frame. I liked them.

No pics of them mounted but terrific idea and product, unfortunately banned. A Shimano conspiracy - now the peloton is forced to hold onto cables.

I always wondered why something like this wasn't used in the TDF, ya see so many holding the cables.

They were used for a few years until they were banned for being dangerous and supposedly causing crashes. I rode them for a long time and really liked them.
It's a shorty aerobar that you can actually pull on a bit. I've been trying to find someone to CNC me new clamps to fit oversized bars.

The poor man's aero bar. Easy to install, worked quite well. I believe they were originally legal for a couple of years, Cinelli was selling quite a lot of them, then the UCI decided to ban them from organized (pro) mass start races in 1997.

Here's my version of cinelli spinaci. I put extensions on mine as my arms are long. Then I made a collar out of hockey tape and 2 ton epoxy to link the two bars together. The only thing I don't like is I can feel flex on the stem on the road bike when pulling up on it. Otherwise its pretty strong.

Ok. I was able to fit these on with safety brake/levers which I felt was nice as they aren't dangerous. Its not easy to find aero bars that will work with this and 24mm handlebar tops. The bike isn't slower. I got 31.2 mph on the flat and my previous record was 29.5mph on the drops.

The spinaccis, along with the unparalleled, um, hematocrit levels, meant that the races were as fast as they ever got. The two years they were legal were the Riis and Ullrich Tour years. I want to get DVDs of them just because of the sprints and leadouts. Crazy fast.

I have a set, ditto the 3ttt Tirimasus. Also Scott drop in, Cane Creek speed bars. I wish I could ride well enough to need them, but I'm too slow.

Thanks. I believe I might be a Fred. Although a little unsure of the exact meaning. I do run these pedals which I believe are the best I've ever found for my foot ailment. The spindles's have been modded to except a tooth washer like the original campy pedals. Fully adjustable bearings now with one wrench.

Ok, been playing with the cinelli set up. Got arm rests on now. It works! Took some time to make though. Better then those Cinelli Grippo things that I almost bought.
