Horze, that pic you posted was perfect, it made my morning.

Not sure that Rossin is a freak bike, but the rider who piloted it certainly was. Circus gorilla probably. Slamenest slam I have ever seen.

But, oh that Trek above... words fail all me.

Leaving aside "The horror! The horror!" I don't get how it even works. Isn't that' a 700c wheel in a 26" fork? Compress the forks and you'd have carbon spokes flying everywhere.

Hi astranoc.
The Brown Lady-Zipp TT is a beautiful Bike-shop Joke.
-Is the Picture taken outside Søgade Cyckler in Copenhagen ? (I ride In Coph. City every day...)
I can recognize the pavements and cobblestones.
Btw, is the rear brake mounted under/behind BB, like on the Madone ? (The ultimate muck magnet, resulting in dirty pads with poor braking power, used shortly by Specialized on the 1984 Stumpjumper, not to be seen again before 2012).

Wingguy, pretty sure that fork is one of the rare RS shocks produced for 700c wheels (experiments for Spring Classic / cobbled races back in the day).
If that is so, then the Trek is even more of a freak.
:shock:

Not sure on that Stoli;

all the pics i've ever seen of the proper RS roubaix's had caliper brakes and not canti mounts.

Ruby's i think had curved blades.
maybe just a RS Mag 20/21 and a Spinergy mtb wheel?
