In amongst the rusted up heaps that are usually parked outside my place of work, there are often a few little interesting gems that catch my eye.
Imagine my joy when I say this rare beast today…
Blacked-out “anti theft” frame, home made bull-horn handlebars, triple 105 chainset from god knows when, 1″ threaded headset and this guy is also “rubbing” some Continental GatorSkins. A commuter warrior to be proud of!
I have to say, the STI shifters are in possibly the most awkward position imaginable (unless the guy who owns it has tiny little claw hands like Jeremy Beadle), and there can’t much brake leverage either. I guess he wanted the hipster looks of a track-bike combined with the good sense and practicality of a bike with gears and brakes…it could catch on you know.
