Until Sat I was riding a 1990 Shogun.
At one stage I was riding a 1980 Appolo 1, the stare value was priceless.

It's more about the attitude of your riding than the image you present.

I purchased my Apollo for $5 and it quickly got the title of being a pub bike at the first race I used it at. Heavy bikes are great for training and racing if you're there for the social aspect. Wins can be rewarding if you can do well on them :P

I still have and use my Bridgestone RB-1, I think it's a 1985, a nice bike, seems like twice the weight of my Strong Frames Foco though....

Nice bike, but why did you drill out your chain rings? Can you say flexy? :lol:

Can you tell us how much weight you saved and any impact on crank flex?
Look great but I'm questioning the practicality of the move.

I can see where you're coming from Brian but then again, even shimano drill their cassette sprogs. I too would like to know the weight saving on drilling.

Maybe I am sticking my neck out here but I think Jazzer's chain rings epitomise what being a weight weenie should be all about i.e. not necessarily having the biggest chequebook but tuning and refining the components available to us as we do with our careful training. In the same sense, Ferrari don't win Grand Prix by buying the best car (so they tell us), their success is achieved by relentless development.

Someone will no doubt pop up and inform me to whack this on a separate forum!! :wink:

drilled out chainrings are actually not a new trick. in his heyday, eddy merckx and guys during that era were drilling out chainrings, downtube shifters, brake levers, etc. tony rominger was the last guy pro i know of who was into the drilled out parts.

this is the first time i've seen this done on a current day setup. if you did it yourself, nice job!

I've seen track chain rings that were drilled out but they were quite thick anyways.

Will we see a revival of these trends? Personally I am reaching for my drill........

I already do things like cut the surplus ends off handlebars.

Am I normal? :cry:
