  • I love Colnagos but that is basically indefensible apart from the frameset.

  • It's a wall-hanger for oligarchs, not a bicycle for cyclists. Belongs in anti.

  • That Colnago could actually form the basis for a new thread entitled 'Bling bikes! Tarts' Handbags! Pimps' bikes! Balleurs!'

  • But anti-porn is a good home for it in the mean time.

    Also that Olmo. Bullhorns? srsly?

  • Is that "Colnago" actually made by one of those Aussie faux-Italian named builders? I'm thinking Liberacci.

  • Gold plate a Colnago. Photograph it in the small ring.

  • different parameters for porn: chain forms parallel lines.

  • You just made that up.

  • was it that convincing?

  • I like that idea.

  • You just made that up.

    Nah, I definitely get that. Works well with a compact on big ring + middle sprocket. I'm not so keen on standard big ring + small sprocket, precisely because of the non-parallel-ness. A good manly gear, but not good for p0rn aesthetics. Big ring + big sprocket = parallel but then you're in a silly gear with the rear mech all stretched out.

  • I always like big ring -little sprocket for a road bike. Shouts hyper speed.

    Then little ring big sprocket on a MTB. Shouts that you can ride up Muddy cliffs.

  • I've always liked big ring/ middle of the block. Jockey wheel centres slightly forward of vertical. To me it just looks faster, as if its poised to accelerate hard. I find big ring/ small cog too high. The bike looks as if its going no where fast.

    Parallel chain. Nah.

  • made by?

  • Edit: Stand corrected. *bows.

  • Can anyone tell me what the general name for this type of handlebar is as seen in the post or on this bike: http://www.dolan-bikes.com/dolan-track-b­ikes/track-bikes/track-aluminium/dolan-f­xe-aluminium-fixie-bike-black-matt.html

    I have a trek district which I love but the handlebars are a bit high and far back, and I'd like a more aggressive position. I like these ones without the curve down, i.e. just going forwards. Can anyone enlighten me as to their name and if they're good.

  • I think you're describing bullhorns, although they vary quite a lot in shape (e.g. the ones in that image have a degree of drop from the clamp, so best to try before you buy

    Racing bikes should be photographed in setting fast. I'm not arguing a case, it's was a FACT and is now an INTERNET FACT...

    ...just as cross bikes should be muddy and beaters should be locked-up.

    Parallel lines look nice, on a mixte's frame tubes.

    :)
