Oh never seen a Speedvagen before??? Absolutely stunning


#6427

nope, Iโ€™m not much of a connoisseur of exotica really - but these really float my boat


#6428

love the matched fork, stem & seatposts


#6429

Thereโ€™s a place in Girona you can rent them from:

So so so expensive :rofl:

(Probably getting a carbon Orbea from somewhere else instead)

Amazing bikes. Cyclingtips do a series called bikes of the bunch. Well worth googling Speedvagen cyclingtips. In fact, just look at all the bikes of the bunch articles


#6431

I have one, but Iโ€™m sure itโ€™s not right because thereโ€™s faster people than me. I think something about the segment has been made private so I canโ€™t see other peopleโ€™s time making me the sole KOMโ€ฆ itโ€™s weird.

Iโ€™m 2 seconds off KOM on a regular segment tho, reckon I can nail that sucker.

#6436

god some of these Saffron bikes, blimey


#6437

Saffron are bloody lovely. I remember riding with a guy on a fully tricked Saffron bike a few years ago. Stunning.


#6438

REP speedvagen


#6439

Zero obviously because pretty much every segment Iโ€™ve ever ridden has been part of the tour or the dauphine at some point in the last few years.

Also Iโ€™m really slow so thereโ€™s that. Usually delighted if I can get in the top 500 on a segment.

Most downhill segments are nailed by pro mtbers too


#6440

Aw maaaan :pensive:


#6441

Top 500 out of 10000 is decent tbh mate.


#6442

:smiley:

itโ€™s done that with one of mine too. donโ€™t think it shows up if you match an existing KOM, only if you beat it (maybe)

despite it telling you you have the KOM on the ride itself


#6443

I might create my own segment, of my road, just so that I can get a KOM, for a day.


#6444

oh wow

(apart from that fucking ugly fork)
