There is a local forum member who has posted about having a tri-fit pace and some pricey fashion SPD boots that has made some stealth kit and gender upsets on the commute.

TT bike!? Tsk... Its obviously a Tarck bike. Though, MBill is probably right; it is probably more show than go.

Never heard about tarck before LOL

That post should have had a parental advisory warning. You can't unsee that.

Semi ontopic,that is another kit I have seen recently that is a camouflage print. I struggle to imagine anything more stupid than deliberately trying to blend in with the surroundings. It's like bike ninja, in the daytime... :shock:

Not sure it blends in too well :shock:

But in any case, camouglage is all the rage.... check this out from hipster Melbourne brand Attaquer. Bit of an acquired taste?

Ride in Melbourne and you'll be seeing plenty more...the hipsters are lovin this look....on their site nearly everything's sold out :? . Even seen some in Sydney.

Hardly your trad approach....you'd wanna be bloody good to wear this stuff I reckon.

PS I do not have any relationship with attaquer or any inclination to wear dodgy flouro camo or grow a hipster moustache :lol:

I laughed yesterday... mate has one of these ( €7500 !!! ) ... full carbon including the mudguards, weighs in at under 12 kgs which is pretty impressive for a city bike. He did 80kms on it yesterday including some climbing. Said the belt drive and alfine hub does rob power but all in all not too bad.
They are made by Time for Hermès ... so if Hermès are commiting big time to cycling it must be rather chic! ( they are producing a more sporty version ).
PS.. mate didn't buy it... he is a test rider for Time, thats a gig I wouldn't mind :D .

Attaquer has some great fluoro "8 bit" graphics on black background, like old school Space Invaders, which is visible and looks fine, if you are into the style. It's not worse than the other stuff out there... BUT BLUE ANIMAL PRINT OH MY EYES WHERE IS THE BEAR MACE TO CLEAN MY EYES

Do NOT make the mistake of hunting for what was taken as chic MTB kit from the early-mid 90s then :shock:

That weight is a bit disappointing for full carbon, my old 3 speed racer weighs 12.6 including a full steel water bottle and SPD pedals :? .
