I like Nick and his work, but this looks just like every other Crumpton. I guess this is the signature look though, so it works. I like the simpleness of his frames a lot. One day when I get loaded rich....


It does look the same: nothing flashy. But the weight numbers quoted in the story are impressive. And with Crumpton you know he's not cutting any corners in getting those numbers (not to say a heavier frame wouldn't be more comfortable).

It looks like the brake levers on the English TT bike are located on the lower set of handlebars, both rotated to have the 'lever' parallel to the ground.


Those brake levers and brake pods are USE Tulas. Looks like Rob has butchered a set for his show bike. Stunning bike but I couldn't cope with pads and extensions that close together.

Did anyone go this year and snap pictures of the Gaulzetti booth? Curious what the other bikes were other than the stuff I've seen on Velonews.

same bikes, pastel colors.

Touche. Up for debate, but as long as we can all agree that Sram belongs in some lower redheaded stepchild class then we're all ok

I know I'm famous for hating on Guru, but looks like they stole Crumpton's expertise and ideas again by using the ridged and internally reinforced tubes. Wonder if they're still using the very thin, but very stiff/brittle modulus of carbon they used on the old frames or not. Shapes remind me a lot of the A2J frames.

Cool to see the Predator bikes display and its interesting that their entire elite team is racing on repaired bikes.

So that's the Serotta-built Huffy ridden by Andy Hampsten in in his '88 Giro d-Italia win? Well, I guess it is http://www.cyclingnews.com/features/historic-pro-bike-andy-hampstens-1988-7-eleven-huffy-giro-ditalia. This picture would fail WW board standards though, due to the bike being in the lowest rather than the highest gear.

Edit:Well, the link says the frame and fork were custom-made by Land Shark. So was this not built by Serotta? When did Serotta stop building the 7-11 Huffy bikes?

Serotta built most of them, Hampsten's were Land Shark. I had a colleague whose bike was an ex 7-11 "Huffy". Very purty!

I don't recognize the cranks on the English TT bike. Are they custom too?
The BB shell looks very small diameter.
