I was simply using it as a colour reference as the frame is a very similar shade.
Campagnolo; because it's a bicycle, not a fishing rod.

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


It’s in the article… It’s an ISP with a KCNC Seat mast topper (Majestic) painted to match the lugs.

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


I ‘m not sure what I coulda said! “unlike Number 7 this thing will still be able to turn right and left after a couple of years?”. “It’s a little chunky but it works well and has balls?” “It’s smart enough to go on a bicycle rather than a motorcycle”?

"It smooths out bumps in the road like Roethlisberger's attorney does for Ben's civil cases"? ;)

There's more. But maybe not fit for Pez.

I'd say Charles has done a great job of explaining the rationale behind it.

Not to dis CharlesM or TP, but none of these can hold a candle to Bike Snob NYC's "handles corners like a prostitute". Not only is it, as far as I know, the original, and indeed the creator of its genre, but it's simply the best. You guys are like a 5th grade girl on a Schwinn Stingray, behind a leadout train of 4th grade girls on Schwinn Stingrays, trying to outsprint Cav - even hopped up on steroids in a particle accelerator on greased monkeys you're not going to do it.

No, we just have bosses to answer to and a rating to keep the piece in :lol:

And I'll bet Bike Snob wasn't the first with that line.

I'm not close to caring about that race in any case...

I liked the thought behind the design of the bike...the final result is so so...aesthetically. But opinions are...well?

Didn't care one bit for the tone of the article in parts...

I once used "climbs like an African Bush Baby" (supposedly the fastest tree climber on the plant), but not many people know what Bush Babies are :D
