Bike Porn
  • I can see it. I know what you mean about imageshack photos though. It might be because the word porn is in the URL.

    I'm still in two minds as to whether or not this is porn. I like the Madone frame but then at the same time I hate it.

    I love the frame, I don't love the colours. I think in the right livery, that'd be porn.

  • That Trek is well and truly anti-porn.

    These veloflex tyres remind me of glycerol soap. If you use too high a wt % of glycerol in your soap formulation you can't process it in with machine. It's really just glycerol for glycerol's sake. These veloflex tyres better not be like glycerol soap. Have you had any reviews on the performance of the tyres or is this purely a "Nice tyres that cost £22 at cyclebasket but way more everywhere else. I need them"

    Their tubs were good enough for Fabian Cancellara at the Paris-Roubaix. (With logo's penned out.)

    The Madone! I quite like them. They ride very well and are put to gether very well too. If the weather is ok saturday then ill be on a 5.2 for SMRC
  • When I saw that on the london forum I did think of you. Its good value at the moment.

    It'd be great to get that all for £450. Even £600 is good value because those cranks are so pricy now. It's a one stop shop for a classic keirin build. I'm putting my NJS addiction on hold for the time being. I've bought all the cheap(ish) things apart from the chain tugs so I'm going to wait out the exchange rate for the rest.
  • One for Rusty:

    It's on ebay now!

  • Bike 14 have polished silver Goldtech hubs.

    image

    £140 for the pair. Sweet. I can't decide between these and DA now.
  • D-A for the win, you know it makes sense
  • I know. But those are quite nice. And they have allen key nuts which is a big plus.
  • And you're supporting the Welsh economy by buying them (although if you buy DA hubs your supporting the government by indirectly/or directly paying customs tax).
  • Nah I believe Goldtechs are made in the North East of England these days.

    Have they changed where they make them?
  • I'm sure I read they used to be made in Wales, but they are now in Newcastle or somewhere.

    false: Wrong Newcastle. They are made i Staffordshire, near Stoke.
  • I'm not a fan of SRAM and I know a lot of you aren't fans of gears at all but I saw this and though wow!

  • And a lovely wife she is! I thought I was over my NJS fetish but it's all rolling back now. Those cranks are definitely work the money for the finish alone. Excellent attention to detail.
  • I need to resist temptation to fit them. Don't have the bottom bracket yet or crank bolts. I'm not even sure what crank bolts to get.
  • crank bolts are crank bolts, your only going to save a couple grams if you spend lots of money.

    Bike is actually on eBay at the moment. 18cm seat tube.
  • ^ could that in theory be built up?
  • If you can find a fork then I think so. The Bottom bracket is threaded.

    If you used just a hub on the back you could. It wouldn't be rideable but it would be good for demonstrating how fixed-gear works.

    That really is beautiful isn't it.
  • Apart from the black stem. I prefer when the stem and seatpost match.
  • A nice pantographed Cinelli 1A would look good on that bike.
