Also, the crank/gears are on the wrong side. Its possible they used a mirrored image, but still...

Good observation

I was reading the latest copy of UK magazine Cycling+ when I came across a WD40 advert. Here's a non-excellent reproduction. I don't think the ad agency is up-to-speed on latest road cycling styles, this photo must date from the mid 90s? Details to amaze:
- 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'.
