  • that is ace!

  • wowzers, my new favorite bike.

    any idea on what those brakes are?

    record. i think.

  • Soming about that right seat pin that reminds me of this...

  • any idea on what those brakes are?

    Ciamillo callipers, Zero G I think

  • thanks tester ^

    Mmmm Suntour Superbe Pro track groupset.. gotta be the best out there !

  • ^I concur.. Suntour always has had a strange appeal to me.. Inventors of the slant parallellogram (I probably spelt this wrong) for derailleurs.. Then the "law of the dialectics of progress", a translation of the dutch saying: "wet van de remmende voorsprong", literally translated "law of delaying lead" which describes the trap of consending with your lead while others innovate and you fall behind, and in this case go bust and be stuck with producing suspension forks..

    plus, she's prettiest..

    look like common cnc machined modern calipers to me

  • i think tester was spot on. you can even see the ciamillo logo if you enlarge the pic of the nag.

  • Why would they have opted for weight weenie brakes? I mean I'm sure the complete bike is pretty light, but a steel frameset is hardly an ideal base for a ww bike.

    mmts?

  • Do they fuck! I remember thinking that pink bike was the coolest bike ever at the time...

    Thank you!
    When I first saw Mash all the bikes blew my mind

  • That's nice, the tyres just ruined it massively for me.

    seemed like a cheap and easy way to personalised your bike - colourful tyres.

  • Total quality

  • I'm kinda getting bored of those frames now. They're lush. I'd love to own one but what is different from ^^that one and one posted the other week?

  • And you're sure he wasn't talking about London? As in London's famous London?

    IMHO a bit wrong interpretation of the law you mentioned and the situation at Suntour.
    But somehow you're right. Suntour made some mistakes in strategy and faded away.
    Fact is that some Suntour (Superbe, Superbe Pro) parts (just before indexed shifing) were perhaps the best in that certain era. And affordable. And had a fantastic reputation. Especially in US, much more than in EU, where Shmn and Campagnolo were rated No. 1.
    And... nothing wrong with producing suspension forks and gear boxes.

    Virtually all my track sprockets are Suntour a few Shimano one Gigas and one Campag The Suntour ones definately run smoother than the rest... the campag one is the worst infact it was so ill fitting it even stripped the thread off a Ghibli track disc.

  • mmts?

    I don't know what that means.

  • I don't know what that means.

    I think it means you need weight weenie brakes in order to ride the Hyderabad Metro
