- that sack-like jersey
- super-high super-stretched position
- mismatched wheels.

Nothing against the product, mind, I use it myself.


That's the Time Travelling Retro-Fred from the Planet Tri-Dork that BikeSnobNYC has quite frequently commented on. Great find! My favorite is the tip about unsticking your nuts with that helpful little arrow :lol:

Unsticking nuts pointing to the groin area? Was that a joke? :lol:

It's as real as his down-tube shifters, aerobars and bullhorn combo!

Thank god his nuts aren't stuck.

Stating tghe obvious, but that's an old school TT bike with a 650 front wheel!

Getting really aero with 6 inches of spacers! Kind defeats the intended purpose of the frames geo.

Very aero with the sack he's wearing also!

Those shifters and saddle must be pointed up as a tribute to the Italian cycling gods :D

I used those Zipp wheels once in their hayday... I'm glad I'm still here. Braking was horrible. Fun to ride though.

Frames are overrated. This guy has read too many forums about 'what to upgrade on a bike first'.
