lol... my thoughts exactly. Mr. Pimp-daddy Absalon. I wonder if he got a purple Cadillac, and a spinning crossmax necklace pendant to go with it... ?

I'm more a fan of the 'stealth' grey/black(and maybe a wee bit of red) look myself, but I suppose there are those to whom that sort of thing appeals.... :wink:

I think I saw a pink I.F. with 'Hello Kitty's on it somewhere on the mtbr forums.... :D

LloydP: It is gold for a reason...

Gold should be kept to the medal, not making a bike so gaudy :D

He could even run Hutch Mosquito's gold and a Wipperman gold chain. But the finishing touch would be the Nokon gold cables. (probably due to some sponsordeal he is not able to do so, otherwise...)

man, that bike is butt ugly! Although i like the idea of making a special bike. i think bianchi has gone a bit to far with the gold spraypaint.

IIRC pezzo had a gold sugar.

danielgillett: Yeah, I know he won gold, but I still think there would be better ways to show it off. I like the idea of a special edition bike to commemerate the win, but I agree with Frankie that the man with the gold paint got carried away.
It's at least the same spec as the one he won it on, right? (looks about right apart from all the gold...)

I kinda like it, not that I would ride one. Besides, it's gonna get covered in mud and dust as soon as the race starts so who cares! :lol:

Ok, it might not look at as nice, but I'm sure it goes a hell of a lot faster than your bikes :wink:
