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

Mrazek BOH RD race. I think they look great, in a Tatra kinda way.

Has anyone here ever tried one of them? Ride one regularly?

Looks like it was crushed between two cars.

I think it is supposed to be art. Therefore I think I could put an old crank and wheelset on my living room painting and give it a run for its money.

Some Bianchi C2C models looked like that for a few years as well. Not really my thing.

Mrazeks are fairly well known among (older?) mountain bikers, their BOH FX sold in reasonable numbers in the late 90s-early 00s apparently. But those road and cyclocross frames are "new" (2012 I think).

Yeah, i remember Mrazek from the MTB heydey, but these...they look like form over function, and they're not even particularly handsome.

Here's my old Gardin





Originally a time trial bike. Aggressive geometry, fun to ride.
