Bike Porn Friday: bring your own


Still choking on our outrage that Mark Renshaw was disqualified from the Tour de France yesterday, and wondering whether to protest by burning all our Garmin-Slipstream kit, or posting it back to Vaughters with a note explaining how disappointed we are, or doing the second thing having let Matt use my Slipstream cardigan as an 'emergency jacket', the TroisV realised that the only thing that could really console us, short of HTC-Columbia going all Cinzano on Garmin, is that crutch for the cycling geek: BIKE PORN!

Now, just as homemade amateur porn and the vcr revolutionised human pornography (or 'hupo'), so the interwebs has finally done the same for bike porn (or 'bipo' - not to be confused with 'bihupo' which is a very different thing).

So this week, rather than offering you some premade bipo (or 'prebipo'), the TroisV points you to where you can let your dirty little minds run amok.

Mercian Cycles have been making handmade beauties like this:

for years and years, and as a custom bike company, you can obviously choose whatever sort of frame and colour you like.

Now Mercian have created a gizmo that lets you see your imagination's wildest fantasies made digital:


Phwoarrr!

Now while you all wrestle with having unnatural thoughts about your creatons, we're going to watch the Tour, and enjoy these songs, which are dedicated to Team Slipstream.





Flotsnoo!
Trois V!

STOP PRESS! Top TroisV researchers have discovered that John Vande Velde, father of Team Slipstream's leader Christian, PLAYED ONE OF THE TEAM CINZANO CYCLISTS IN BREAKING AWAY!!!! It all makes so much sense now.

Dr Matt, on my command, unleash hell.

  1. Is this a royal "we"? I can't say that I care all that much. Also: let's not be badmouthing the Vande Veldes. Chicago, Illinois will wreak its revenge on you.
