What I want to know is whether the bike handles corners like a prostitute.

Sorry, I see now. It "will track a white line like a young Tom Boonen."

My name really doesn't belong in this post.

Partly because I did so little to make this happen... And partly because that vid clip kinda freaks me out...(the look on his face reminds me of Hannibal Lechter when he see's a meal)

I'm glad there's demand for craftsmen like KB.

I enjoyed the Pez write-up very much, thanks CharlesM

Gorgeous frame but I think you've over done it with the white. Would look a lot better with black seatpost & stem and maybe whitewall tyres.

This post springs to mind; viewtopic.php?f=10&t=68551&start=0

Also I have to ask, what on earth is going on with the seatpost? I've never seen anything like that before.

With all due respect to that Lynskey, it's like saying your Ferrari would look better if you used this Ford Focus body kit.

But Charles, come on man. That headset and not a one Roethlisberger pun? :lol:


Lovely machine. Truly.
