Crazy spec, almost like it came off a full-suss

Sure someone will post more pics of it soon lol

Orange Hope, mismatched tires, I’m out - aggressively sexy though, no question about that. Dude is a product tester for Pipedream amongst others, hence all the high end components hanging off it. Few tweaks and it would be great- just swapping the Hope for Burgtec or similar would work better imo

Aggressive yes

Sexy no

Doing the Hope matchy-match is cool, but only in theory....

Not feeling a tonne of love for that gold abomination.

I believe it’s the discussion (& good bikes) that he was referring to when mentioning ‘feeling the love’, the gold bike creates such discussion as it fails on many counts, yet it does (somehow) work also .. but, that’s up for discussion ..

First gear blues , seat tube length, those rims .. ‘the gaudiness’ of it.. there’s more ..decals , ALL of them need to go .. those spokes too

Oh I know, I was being hilarious again and no one noticed.

the parts that look wrong are not the golden ones. brownwall tires like a griffus might be a better fit..

Yeah, I dig it. It’s different/unique which is nice

Has anyone heard of Rip Cycles? they were at an event at Skypark and I chatted with the guy for a while. Snapped a terrible pic of a beautiful bike.
Made in California, Custom bikes but based on the conversation the prices seem very reasonable. He said the red frame in the photo would go for about ~$800

That 410. Is beautiful, interested to know the geo, some top draw components, this is up there with bitelio’s Passila

i think the brown saddle, grips and tires do absolutely not fit - its a color to much and also it doesnt fit the silver fork. The silver and red are outstanding enough, the other colors need to keep a lower profile.

This might be my typical german art of complaining (nit-picking?), but optic-wise i think this thread has seen bikes which are more appealing to the eye.
