can we start a Bike Porn thread?
those beauties you'll never own
The one that Embacher used to own was incredible.
I wonder if he ever gets mad that he sold it all.
gotta go fast
But you'll note the pursuit bars on this image. A very low position.
Gonna have to treat myself to one of these in a year or two. The frame is so classy irl. Also a Holdsworth professional.
What would you do with this?
>inb4 not sit, stand, or other seat jokes
Call buzzfeed and huffington post and fly their "reporters" on a vacation to nazi germany so they can ride it in exchange for writing an audi advertisement for free, then stick it in the trash where it belongs
ya, that's technically "bike porn," I guess.
>downward facing stem with riser bars that cancel each other out
Not a true bike porn bike, but I saved this bike from a wonky-ass MTB build a year ago and I love it more and more every day.
I have a carbon racing bike and a carbon cyclocross bike, and neither of them have gotten any use since my last chipped event in October. I just pile the miles on this steelie.
Should I get it repainted with new decals? There are some noticable scratches and nicks.
No way, that frame looks fabulous still.
Repainting doesn't really make sense unless you've got severe paint loss and large areas of bare metal. Otherwise it's equally effective and much cheaper and quicker to touch-up small spots as needed.
Thanks for the input, I'll take this advice.
Everybody at the co-op that I volunteer at thinks I'm retarded for considering a repaint, and they're pressuring me to replace the brown bartape with black as well.
Now if only they made a super durable set of gumwall tires suitable for commuting on shitty pavement.
>noticable scratches and nicks.
DON'T TOUCH THE PAINT
Get yourself some cager wax and buff the shit out of the frame. Won't fix the scratches and nicks buy the paint will look better
holy shit that cockpit setup and those shifters, was the previous owner of this bike a 60 year old man?
and thats coming from the owner of this bastard setup in the pic(minus the silver bar "ends" now)
can someone post that rigid 90's MB that has an horizontal downtube like so? sry for drawing skills
can't remember the exact brand, but I keep thinking of Yeti for the bright blue color
Hufnagel Porteur. This one got me and has always had me. Such a work of art
>1x gearing with a swaged-on chainring
Other than those thing I agree that's beautiful - especially how the lighting is integrated. I want to try dynamo lights so bad but I have too many bikes I like equally for riding at night...
the setup is awful. low saddle, slammed back on the rails. saggy seat bag. rubber bands on the seatstays. bottle cage on the st, not the dt. some weird sticker on the dt. wall outlet.
