Horze, that pic you posted was perfect, it made my morning.

Not sure that Rossin is a freak bike, but the rider who piloted it certainly was. Circus gorilla probably. Slamenest slam I have ever seen.

But, oh that Trek above... words fail all me.

Leaving aside "The horror! The horror!" I don't get how it even works. Isn't that' a 700c wheel in a 26" fork? Compress the forks and you'd have carbon spokes flying everywhere.

Hi astranoc.
The Brown Lady-Zipp TT is a beautiful Bike-shop Joke.
-Is the Picture taken outside Søgade Cyckler in Copenhagen ? (I ride In Coph. City every day...)
I can recognize the pavements and cobblestones.
Btw, is the rear brake mounted under/behind BB, like on the Madone ? (The ultimate muck magnet, resulting in dirty pads with poor braking power, used shortly by Specialized on the 1984 Stumpjumper, not to be seen again before 2012).
-Will Race for food..

Wingguy, pretty sure that fork is one of the rare RS shocks produced for 700c wheels (experiments for Spring Classic / cobbled races back in the day).
If that is so, then the Trek is even more of a freak.

Not sure on that Stoli;

all the pics i've ever seen of the proper RS roubaix's had caliper brakes and not canti mounts.

Ruby's i think had curved blades.
maybe just a RS Mag 20/21 and a Spinergy mtb wheel?
