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. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

But I'll provide you with a nice opportunity to bash one of my bikes (which - btw - has a hand built frame and stem) Note that I genuinly don't care if you don't like it

Okay lets stop the arguing. This is the Hot or Not thread about bikes. This is not the "who is smarter, who is better, who knows more, which country is better thread".

Don't ruin this thread any further than it has been.

You are going to see some posts deleted from this thread as said above and if you are affected, it's because you quoted someone in your defense but since that person's post is gone, no use your reply being here as well.

Fair enough, that's why I posted pics of one of my own bikes to get this thread (and probably the bashing with a lot of "nots") going

Hot might not be the best way to describe your ride. I don’t care for your shifter choice, but that bike is dead sexy.

Definitely hot, aside from the saddle pack and bars... Background could be better, too.

What's up with the DT lever for the front? Campy's front shifting is a fave for many, with good reason. BTW, you could use a hood from an Escape shifter on that gutted Ergo and just have an unused hole instead of an unused slit.

If I remember correctly, Campagnolo had 10spd record available with DT shifters and standard brake levers, or with Ergopower shifters..

Additionally, posting your bike in here, subjects you to the possibility you will receive "not" posts .If you do not want "not" posts about your bike, don't post your bike.

And the "not" posts are to be directed at bikes, not BF members.

This is one of those occasions where I lament the lack of a one eyebrow raised emoticon.

I know they offered Record brake levers without any shift mechanism, because i had a pair. I purchased them NIB from Universal Cycles. Perhaps they were designed to be used with barend shifters.

Here's a set.

10 speed Dura-Ace DT shifters are definitely a thing. Some people convert Campagnolo bar -end shifters to DT, but that's completely different.

It's a little nod to the nineties when a lot op pro riders used this setup for mountain stages. Campagnolo made these brakelevers without shifting mechanism. They were called "Record TT" and originally intended for time trial bikes combined with bar-end shifters. The carbon downtube lever was made by BTP (the other parts are from an old Campagnolo Syncro DT shifter).

Yeah, I remember seeing that sometimes.

What was the point, was there concern over missed shifts?

On Shimano-equipped bikes (Hampsten, Jalabert, Zulle, Armstrong, etc.) it was to allow more precise positioning of the front derailleur to prevent chain rub (this was an issue with the old 8- and 9-speed STI-lever) as well as some weight saving. Back in 1997 I ran a Shimano SLR-lever combined with an old RX-100 downtube shifter on my Bianchi which saved close to 70 grams. With Ergopower the chain rub wasn't an issue so on Campagnolo-equipped bikes it was mainly to shed some weight.

Gorgeous bike! You must be a tall person, that is one hell of a tall frame.

What is that thing under the saddle?

I'm 1m83 (6ft) which is by no means tall. The bike has a 16.5cm headtube and a 57cm toptube. I never bothered about the length of the seattube - I simply told the builder that I wanted a horizontal toptube - but centre of the BB to top of the saddle measures 78cm.

A color-matched saddlebag made by Corné Bouman at Cycle Leathers Corne. I know it is considered mandatory to show "hot" bikes without such accessories but I had just returned from a ride when I took those pics (hence the computer, used tires and mud). In the pic above I stuffed two spare tires, tirelevers and a minipump in a waterbottle.
