Friday brought out a number of bikes for the Urban Velo lens. The running total racks up another 100+ images with this update, now topping 250 pictures and another day of shooting left to go. Read on for more.

Bayliss brought this bike by first thing this morning. Quite the treat. Cut out lugs done right.

bme.jpg bmeht.jpg bmest.jpg

BME, straight out of Slovakia. Another take on the carbon truss structure.

Desalvo never fails to bring a nice show bike. Pinstriped rims, powdercoated hubs. He even outlined the track ends.

devinci3.jpg devinci3back.jpg devinci3gear.jpg

daVinci is known for their independent pedaling tandems, but shown here is a triple with S+S couplings for easy travel, whether in the car or on the plane.

Ed Litton had some beautiful bikes at the show, namely the blue one here with 1930′s era Campy shift bits. One lever opens the skewer, the other pushed the chain to a given cog as you backpedal. The serrated dropout taken from a bike of the same era keeps the serrated axle aligned as it rolls across during shifts. The original one speed death kiss.

Huffnagel from Portland had this keirin inspired bike under the lights for a session.

Jeff Jones needs little introduction. Amazing ti.

ka.jpg kafront.jpg kafront2.jpg

Keith Anderson funny bike. Otherwise known as a pursuit frame.

marcroft.jpg marcroftcs.jpg marcroftside.jpg marcroftst.jpg marcrofttt.jpg

Marcroft Cycles brought by this personal road racing bike for display. Something about a well used display bike.

moots.jpg mootsback.jpg mootscrown.jpg mootsfork.jpg mootsfork2.jpgmootsside.jpg

Moots snowbike. 165mm spacing front and rear using DT-Swiss downhill rear hubs for interchangeable wheels.

parleetri1.jpg parleetriback.jpg parleetrido.jpg parleetrifront.jpg parleex.jpg parleexback.jpg parleexbrake.jpg parleexht.jpg

Parlee brought these two carbon bikes by the lights, with the tri-bike disappearing from the front view.

sachs.jpg sachsbbridge.jpg sachsfd.jpg sachslug.jpg sachsside.jpg

Richard Sachs let me roll this signature road bike over to the lights. Full Campy and the color scheme and craftsmanship you’d expect.

sycipb.jpg sycipbbrake.jpg sycipbbrake2.jpg sycipbcs.jpg sycipbfront1.jpg sycipbht.jpg sycipbside.jpg sycipx.jpg sycipxback.jpg sycipxht.jpg

Sycip had some unique bikes on display, namely the brown bike featuring the fixed drivetrain brake. Practical? Maybe not. But an interesting mechanical take on things for sure. Sorry GW, you aren’t the only one on the block with one of these anymore.

truemb.jpg truembdt.jpg truembht.jpg truembsstay.jpg truess.jpg truessback.jpg truessrack.jpg truessrack2.jpg

True Fabrication. Fake rust? Leather chaingaurd? Wood rack? Yes yes and yes.

vendetta.jpg vendettaht.jpg vendettastem.jpg vendettatt.jpg

Vendetta candy coat. Lots of paint on this one.

vicious.jpg viciousback.jpg viciousfront.jpg viciousside.jpg vicioustt.jpg

Vicious Cycles brought by this road bike with their typical stunning paint finish.

waterford.jpg watefordfront.jpg watefordtt2.jpg waterfordht.jpg waterfordtt.jpg

Waterford randoneuring bike. Bring out your inner Frenchman.

    Brad, I looked for you everywhere, man. I even went to that back area where the studio shooting took place but couldn’t find you.

    nice pics

  5. JustinFebruary 11, 2008 at 12:51 pm

    Wasn’t GW’s brake on the drive side? Having a hot disc exposed on the non-drive side looks kinda scary… cool bike other than that though.

    It’s da Vinci Tandems, not devinci.

    CyKip Copies. My Disc Fixed set up was out there first, and it is cleaner and better. Pittsburgh Knows it, CyKip Knows it, and so does Doug White. Love, G.W.
