Beautiful Bikes

Postby The 2nd Womble » Fri Sep 27, 2013 6:54 pm

Instead of sabotaging the Ugly Bike thread I thought this would work a little better.

I don't have a photo, but the Trek Speed Concept in the window of Clarence Street Cyclery at the moment looks damn good. Black with stealthy outline logos and Zipps on it. 8)

yeh i saw that one the other day

pretty sure its a speed concept 9.9 and had the $11,000AUD price tag on it. For some reason had the old discontinued 1080 Zippies on it

Your next bike G-boaf!



The red S-Works Shiv TT in the Specialized JET cycles few hundred meters up the road looks good too.

Yeah, saw that a few times already. :lol: No, no no... Keep going...

I do like the Trek more. I don't need one though. ;) Don't have the dollars to drop on one either.

i think its mainly the red and white colour that lets down the Shiv. THe trek looks beefy with the plastic Draft pack at the back

I think the 2014 model of Speed Concept range is out.

funny thing is... every manufacturer seems to bring out "the fastest bike in the world" or the "most aerodynamic"

in races theres only room for no#1 but i guess not in bike models and manufacturers

The red doesn't do it favours - but I do look at the Shiv with a rather envious eye. ;) they look much better in black.

Like some people appreciate fast cars, I do the same with bikes. :)

Here's a beautiful bike. It's actually got numerous nicks and scratches, but faithfully carries me at least 300km every week, and has been doing so for almost 5 years :D . Due to wear and tear, the only original parts are the frame, handlebars, brifters and cranks. My pride and joy.

I know this one is very subjective but I just got one and it is the nicest bike I have ever ridden, and I've ridden a few. Its a cookie cutter frame with average components but rides so well and i think the paint scheme is horn.

There was a guy at Pushies Galore with a silver Malvern Star roadie. Does anyone have a good pic of that? It was immaculate.

I was looking at one of them what's your opinion on the brakes at the rear?
