Bike Expo Randoms

WHAT is going on there?  Nothing says check out my intergalactic space man dome quite like this "awesome" (tacky) concept...  A cover with "stylish" fabric to make you look better while commuting.  Well F at least you'll get noticed while riding your bike sans reflective material.



Whats better than an all carbon Santa Cruz Blur XC?  Apparently a TI front end makes sense for this application.  I don't get it, I understand the vibration dampening quality of ti, but DOES This bikes front end change anything on the blur XC carbon?  Headangle, maybe the lust for a slacker headangle makes sense; right?  Well they could have solved that problem with an angleset, instead of welding up a ti front triangle for this "gem"  I wonder if this was some sort of under the radar build with "crash replacement" parts.  Whatever it is here is the mong0loid stepchild carbon ti blur/non blur, guess it really does blur the line.  At least it has a nice build kit on it.


and the the linkage and shock mount are gorgeously machined, this isn't NAHMBS guys!





NEXT up ... cool concept I have seen this somewhere before though...  these are still sick, post one up in your woodshed, workroom, garage, or your bathroom...Pick a place or collect all 4...

LAMP CYCLE







BTW lampcycle produces a it more dope stuff than the "other" guy


REDLINE FLIPPER TINY RAMP




Remember maxm components/ titus exogrid?  well these guys sure do.  Thought it was kinda funny that they were talking as if it were some new technology




about new technology: there were a lot of electronic bikes at the show, everything from di2 Dura-Ace, Ultegra, and my favorite Campy Super Record...  Didn't see any SRAM RED electronic bits... guess they are keeping it under wraps till the tour (commence rumors now)



WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO BE DOING RIGHT NOW



Speaking of titus previously On-ONE (famous for the inbred back in the day) now owns Titus



this "one" looks a lot like a NINER RDO even the lines are similar, and the fork looks like a beefed up Pinarello slightly... Alas, you could have three of these for the same price as one of those..

and of course Colnago had some overpriced Ferrari bikes... I DON"T GET IT...

'nuff for now....
